A popular member of the Brewers squad, Damien is currently the longest serving member of the squad, 2017/18 seeing him in his sixth season with the club after signing in the summer of 2012 from Dagenham & Redbridge.

Damien is another former League 2 promotion winner to repeat the feat with Albion having a key part of the Daggers squad that achieved promotion to League 1 via the Play-Offs before being surprisingly released when the East Londoners were relegated back to League 2.

A regular member of the Brewers side in his first two seasons with the club injury deprived him of another Play-Off Final appearance but he returned in spectacular fashion to smash home the goal of the season within five minutes of his return to action in October 2014 and re-established himself as a key part of the defence that helped secure back to back promotion for Albion.

Damien originally started his career in the Championship with Plymouth Argyle as a left sided midfielder with loan spells at both Port Vale and Grimsby Town providing experienced for the young midfielder. Damien rejected a permanent move to Blundell Park when Dagenham & Redbridge tabled a five-figure bid for his services and he proved a popular and successful member of the side converting to left back under the tutelage of John Still.

Damien has also represented Republic of Ireland at under 18 and 19 levels and was Albion's Players Player Of The Season in 2013/14. Damien spent the first of the current season on loan at League One side Portsmouth.
