382 Darrell Clarke
Position : Midfield
Played : 2006-07 (on loan from Hartlepool)
Appearances : 12
Goals : 1
Darrell was brought in at the start of the season to boost the midfield. He had played for Parkin before at his hometown club Mansfield for whom he made 161 appearances and scored 24 goals. In July 2001 he went to Hartlepool for £80,000 and was a regular until a bad knee injury in 2004. He was loaned out to Stockport and Port Vale but only played one game for each of them.
Darrell was apparently a great personality in the dressing room but unfortunately he was a crock and completely anonymous on the pitch. He showed some nice touches playing out wide at Accrington and scored away at Barnet (which I missed) but that was about it.
He returned to Hartlepool just before Keith Hill took over but was released in the summer. He went to Salisbury City as a player and has gradually worked his way up to become player-manager.
