A BONA-FIDE Burton Albion legend - Darren Stride was the very first inductee into the Burton Albion Hall of Fame back in 2018.
'Stridey' played for the Brewers for 17 years from 1993 to 2010 and as captain led the club to the first league titles in the club's history - the Northern Premier League (Unibond) title in 2001/2002 and the Conference (Blue Square) title in 2008/2009. He then became the club's first captain as a Football League club.
Stride is the club's record appearance holder having played for the Brewers 654 times and he scored more than 100 goals.
A dynamic midfielder in his early days, he later became a solid centre back but played in almost every position for the club including emergency goalkeeper.
