PositionDefender/Centre back

This experienced Brighton centre half featured in the first two games of 2000-01 replacing the suspended Danny Cullip but then lost his place in the squad and eventually moved out on loan to Rotherham as cover for the suspended Guy Branston. He gave a fine performance for the Millers in the vital clash with promotion rivals Millwall and also appeared in an LDV Vans Trophy tie before departing. He subsequently went on loan to Lincoln in January 2001 to cover for injuries and suspensions. He made a steady debut in the local derby win over Hull City but made just two further appearances before his return to the south coast. Darren then had a third spell on loan at relegation threatened Carlisle where he stayed for the final three months of the campaign slotting in well with the Cumbrians defence and ably assisting their escape from relegation to the Conference. He is a big strong central defender with a no-nonsense style who is particularly effective in the air. Darren moved on to Dover in the new season but was released by the Conference club in January 2002 then had a brief spell at Rushden.
