Darren Delaney is Wanderers Mens first team Captain and has been serving his time at midfield in recent years having pushed on from the half back line. Despite a near career ending injury three years ago, Darren is still one of the first at training and most consistent players in the team. Darren is well known for his light mannered approach to people dossing in training and has a reputation for never losing the plot in the middle of a drill with players!! :-) Good under a high ball and well able to carry it from full back line to full forward line, he sometimes gets caught out by Refs when he performs his helicopter arms style tackling, or "Crazy Arms Tackle" as the lads know it by, he still maintains that this is legal. Darren is a fully committed player and the type you want beside you in a battle.
