Darren is the only Irish person ever to play on a ‘Rest of the World’ selection team! He achieved this feat when he lined out at Villa Park for the ‘Rest of the World’ versus England to mark 100 years of underage football in the English FA.
Darren names this occasion along with lining up for the Irish national anthem in his first ever international match away to Holland, aged 14, as his most memorable moments in his football career to date.
In the Wicklow & District Schoolboy League, Darren started playing football with Valeview Shankill before signing for Manchester City aged 15 from St. Josephs Boy’s. He moved to Manchester with midfielder Stephen Ireland and learned his footballing trade with other, some now big name, players.
When playing for Don Givens’ Under 21 Irish team, Darren has often played in training matches against the Irish team preparing for their World and European Cup Qualifiers. He has trained with Stuart Pearce playing as his left back and Nicolas Anelka shooting at his goal at Manchester City and he doesn’t like being reminded of the goals Wayne Rooney scored against him from Wayne’s time at Everton!!
Finally, some of the coaches Darren has worked with include Alex Stepney, Peter Bonetti, Packie Bonner and Alan Kelly and he marks Shay Given as the best goalkeeper he has had the pleasure to train with.
Stephen McGuinness – Wicklow coach
Whilst attending Just4keepers goalkeeper coaching he was progressing at a rapid pace. Stephen Joined Bray Wanderers Under 19 squad where he won player of the year 2013.
In Bray Wanderers 2014 season he progressed again on to the bench as number two goalkeeper, still only a teenager. 3 games into the season the number one goalkeeper received a red card which gave him his chance – what he has worked hard towards in his weekly goalkeeping drills.
Stephen has joined Drogheda United for the season 2016 following his surgery on a fractured ankle in the latter half of 2015.
