PositionDefender

Having recovered from a long-standing achilles injury Darren joined York City on a three-month contract last December. He made his debut at Reading in the FA Cup second round replay win and made a handful more senior appearances before moving on to Oxford United in February where he was immediately installed as team captain. He scored on his home debut against Stoke and generally added some much-needed experience to a somewhat besieged defence. He is an experienced centre back who is an excellent motivator and reads the game well.
