Ex Millwall FC professional and current Bristol Rovers Captain – over 500 professional appearances
“I’ve known Darren for nearly 20 years and it’s great to see he’s giving the wealth of professional experience he has back into the local community to support the next generation of aspiring players”.
Former Tottenham and England International Player
“I was fortunate enough to play with Darren at Millwall and Swindon, he is one of the most professional players I have come across. He is a real student of the game, a player who has played at the highest of levels and able to carry on late into his 30’s. Fantastic character to be around and someone who I learnt so much from, not only on the pitch but also off it”.
“Darren has been coaching our son for the last 2 seasons, he has helped him develop his skills on the pitch, as well as personally off the pitch. Darren has a vast amount of knowledge not only about football, and has given us guidance and ideas to support our son in his everyday life. Darren is a great mentor and coach not only to my son but the whole team. He is always encouraging and positive, and tries to get the best out of each boy in every session."
Former Swindon Old Town Boys Manager
“Giving all of Darrens experience within the game, it showed very quickly the impact that his vast knowledge base would have on the capability of the team. Within weeks we were far more competent on the ball and lots of players had a much better understanding of what part they had to play within the team. Cant recommend Darren more highly for his competency, creativity and professionalism."
Co-Founder of Football For Fathers
“Darren is an accomplished football industry professional, ex-Premier league player and respected UEFA coach. DW Soccer School offers something different; all round development of our young people, from technical football skills through to 'helping them be the best they can be' as a person in a supportive and fun environment"
