Darren Pratley's Biography

Darren Pratley became Kenny Jackett’s first signing in June 2021, with the combative midfielder appointed Club Captain on his arrival.

Pratley started his professional career at Fulham and made his Premier League debut as an 18-year-old against Charlton.

Pratley spent a season on-loan at Brentford before signing for Kenny Jackett’s Swansea in 2006. He spent five years at the club and achieved two promotions, the first to the Championship and the second to the Premier League.

Following Swansea’s play-off final success, he signed for Premier League side, Bolton Wanderers. Ironically, his first goal for the Trotters came against his previous side.

Pratley spent seven years at the Club and secured a third career promotion, when Bolton returned to the Championship after finishing second in the 2016/17 League One campaign.

He made his return to London in the summer of 2018 and achieved a fourth career promotion, when Charlton beat Sunderland in the 2019 League One play-off final.
