Profile

Darrell Clarke moved into the managerial arena back in 2010 with Salisbury City, before moving on to current club Bristol Rovers in 2014, a post he held for nearly five years before leaving in December 2018.

Clarke became assistant to John Ward at Bristol Rovers in June 2013. Clarke was promoted into the hot seat in March 2014, although he was unable to preserve the club's League Two status as they tumbled out of the Football League - on the final day - for the first time in 94 years.

However, Clarke and Rovers bounced back, holding their nerve in a play-off penalty shoot-out, which shot them back into League Two at the first time of asking.

On their return to the Football League Rovers won a second successive promotion up to League One - achieved on the final day of the 2015/16 season - which was followed by a decent 10th place finish.

As player-manager of Salisbury Clarke led the club to promotion from the Southern League into the Conference South, then up into the Conference - via the play-offs on both occasions. During his time in charge of the Whites he also impressively guided them through to the third round of the FA Cup for the first time in the club's their history.

Darrell Clarke Quotes

I have got a speech actually. When I last did my speech in the (Queen) Vic pub, I sang a song, "We are going up". A little bit premature...The Grimsby Telegraph reminded me of that. Well, here you go Grimsby Telegraph...go and print that b******.


We have had to rebuild a club that had hit rock-bottom and winning this game is a reward for all of the hard work everybody has put in. I don't want to disrespect this league but we didn't want to be here any longer than we had to because with our fan-base I believe we can really kick on.
