Darren Williams (born 28 April 1977) is an English football player and manager.
Williams began his career at York City, but made his name at Sunderland, for whom he signed in 1996 and was seen as one of the clubs all-time best defenders and was known for his uncommon style of play as he could adjust himself greatly into different positions, this made him a world class utility defender. Furthermore, although he was originally born in Middlesbrough, he proved many times that he was a true Sunderland fan at heart. He then moved to Cardiff City in 2004, then on to Hartlepool United in 2005. He was released by Hartlepool in 2007 which was unexpected because his performances for the club were very good, after that he made a move to Bradford City during the 2007–08 season. He then, after that went on to play with Dundee, Gateshead, Gainsborough Trinity and Whitby Town.Close
