Midfield maestro Darren Potter was born in Liverpool on 21 December 1984. He played in the youth teams at Everton, Blackburn Rovers and Liverpool and made two appearances for the Liverpool first team and had spells on loan at Southampton and Wolves before signing for Wolves in 2007 and Sheffield Wednesday in 2009.

He signed on a free transfer from Wednesday on
23 June 2011 and his superb performance in central midfield earned him the Dons Player of the Year Award in his first season. Alongside Stephen Gleeson, he
was also named in the League One Team of the
Year. In 2012 Darren had the third best pass
completion rate in the top four English Leagues.

He eventually became the Dons’ de facto vice-captain, taking the armband when Dean Lewington was unavailable for selection. He also helped as the Team Coach as one of the more experienced players in Karl Robinson’s squad. He has been capped for the Republic of Ireland several times.

After scoring nine goals in 228 appearances for the Dons, he signed for Rotherham United in June 2017.
