The Jamaican-born player has made a name for himself through his exceptional speed and power on the field, and his versatility allows him to contribute both as a winger and a forward.
Having honed his skills in the youth system of Bradford City, Stephenson went on to make his debut for the club, showcasing his immense potential. Since then, he has also represented several other notable teams, including Southport, Chorley, Tranmere Rovers, AFC Fylde, Stockport County, Curzon Ashton, and Chester FC.
Upon securing the signing of Stephenson, Farsley’s director of football, Pav Singh, expressed his delight, stating, “Darren is the kind of player that every club dreams of having.
