A football writer for the Daily Mirror for ten years, Darren is a regular on the Premier League, Champions League and International Beat… plus Sky Sports News as well as radio stations TalkSPORT and Five Live, and occasional appearances on GMTV. He is named among the 50 most influential black people in the game, along with the likes of England captain Rio FerdinandSol Campbell and Chris Kamara. 

The event will help raise thousands of pounds to help finish the construction of the Child of Hope School in the Namatala slum district of Mbale, Uganda. And that will make a huge difference to the lives of hundreds of children who currently have very little hope for any kind of education and employment.
