Darren Ward

I have had the privilege of becoming what many children dream of which is a professional footballer.

This has been achieved by an incredible amount of hard work and commitment from when I first kicked a ball as a toddler.

With the support from my parent’s taxi service my dream came true to sign my first professional contract with Watford FC then continued my career at QPR, Millwall FC, Crystal Palace FC, Wolverhampton Wanderers FC, Charlton Athletic FC, Swindon Town FC, Crawley Town FC and Yeovil Town FC where I have made 628 first team appearances.

I have earned a reputable professional name in the football industry where I would like to share these experiences with those who have aspirations and are committed to reach their goals.

I have a continued growth mindset having qualified as an NLP Practitioner and have an Advanced Diploma in Leadership and Management.

I am currently studying for my UEFA A Licence which I aim to complete by mid 2020 whilst volunteering to coach my sons football team which I thoroughly enjoy.

I have a passion for reading developmental books to enhance my understanding of the mind for both adults and children. In my spare time I constantly look to improve myself to be the best role model I can be for my family with regular fitness training and creating a healthy culture for the environment we live in.
