After the end of the season points shuffle saw a slide of two places to World No. 7 for the coming season 2019-20. It was Darren’s great performance in the World Indoor Open Singles 2019 that gave the much needed points to halt this slide.

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, a family man with two young daughters and a supportive wife, a full International commitment for Scotland as well, 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 and is highly respected on the World Tour.
