What an excellent signing Darren Pratley was. I guess like many others when we signed him from Bolton 3 years ago, I was underwhelmed but how he proved us doubters wrong.
Fans love players who give everything on the pitch and that was Darren. Super fit and strong, He is a born leader never shirking a challenge and contributing as much as could all over the pitch including the great equaliser against Donny.
His performance this season away at MK Dons where he completely marked Scott Fraser out of the game in a textbook example of how to man mark was a standout performance. Even when we were forced to ask him to play out of position as a makeshift centre half, he stepped up and played well.
Fans are a fickle bunch and football is full of different opinions, but for me he was rightly selected as the heart of the team.
I enjoyed watching Darren, he’s a proper footballer
Thanks and good luck for the future
