From the Belfast Telegraph:

“Thanks to many hours of voluntary service, Darran has now established six football teams for young people ranging in age from eight to 16 years, with around 200 taking part.

When play stopped during the pandemic, he found funding for a 10-week online training session for the kids.

He also managed to keep the coaches busy by signing them up for deliveries of food parcels to vulnerable people in the area.”
