After the end of season shuffle with the ranking points Darren had a good enough season to remain in the top 16 at no 9 in the WBT Ranking List which was a slip of two places from the previous No. 7 slot.

Darren was playing well last season and will be trying to go one better this year though he says with events, a full time job and also being a family man with two young daughters and a supportive wife, juggling all this is almost as hard as winning an event itself.

With all the right shots to play in his armoury of skill Darren is always a fierce opponent.
