With his searing pace and startling unpredictability, Darren Huckerby thrilled supporters and struck fear into opposition full-backs throughout a career in which he witnessed the entire spectrum of football’s ups and downs.
At Norwich and Manchester City, he experienced both the elation of promotion and the crushing disappointment of relegation; at Coventry, he forged a successful forward partnership with Dion Dublin which upset the odds against many big clubs, only to see a big-money transfer to Leeds United end in frustration on the touchlines.
Born in Clifton, an area of Nottingham, Huckerby began his career as a YTS player at cash-strapped Lincoln City, achieved legendary status at Norwich City and finally completed his career with Californian Major League Soccer outfit San Jose Earthquakes.
He is almost certainly unique in having scored goals in every fully professional competition in which an English football club can participate: the Premier League, all three divisions of the Football League, the FA and League Cups, the Champions League, and the Europa League, not to mention the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
His other accolades include two Player of the Season awards at Norwich City, the MLS Newcomer of the Year, and a nomination for PFA Young Player of the Year while at Coventry City.
