Darren Michael BRADLEY (born November 24, 1965 in Kings Norton, England) is a former professional footballer. Darren first came to notice to Aston Villa F.C. scouts while at secondary school in Kings Norton, before signing for the Villains in 1983. He represented England at Youth level, and went on to play for the Villa first team, marking the likes of Ian Rush, Liverpool F.C..

Darren moved to The Hawthorns on March 14, 1986, in a deal that saw Stephen Hunt (footballer born 1956) move in the opposite direction. He went on to spend the majority of his career at West Bromwich Albion F.C., captaining the club. Though not a prolific goalscorer, Darren is fondly remembered amongst West Brom fans for a spectacular goal against arch rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C., helping them to a 3-2 victory in the Black Country derby on 5.9.1993.

After leaving the Hawthorns, Darren spent some time at Walsall F.C. before retiring in 1997.

Has been seen since retirement playing for Aston Villa Old Stars, a charity fund-raising football team.

After leaving professional football, Bradley became involved in launching Intergarage in 2000, a business designing and manufacturing underground garages, where he is currently Sales Director.

Darren has two daughters, Kacie and Rosie Bradley.
