Darren Mark Caskey (born 21 August 1974) is an English former footballer. He is currently assistant manager at Conference Premier side Wrexham.[1]

A central midfielder, Caskey started his career as a trainee at Tottenham Hotspur, but failed to live up to early potential.[2][3] He went on to have notable spells at Reading and Notts County.

He captained the England side which won the 1993 UEFA European Under-18 Football Championship, scoring the winning penalty in the one-nil victory against Turkey in the final.[4]

Prior to joining Gateshead, Caskey played in the Northern Premier League First Division South for Ilkeston, he was also assistant manager alongside Kevin Wilson.

His son Jake plays for Brighton & Hove Albion.[5]

In 2014, Caskey was given the squad number 20 at Gateshead.[6][7] Caskey made a substitute appearance for Gateshead in a pre-season friendly against Billingham Synthonia on 12 July 2014, scoring the second goal from a penalty in a 2–0 win.[8]

Darren Caskey followed manager Gary Mills to Wrexham in 2015 to be his assistant.
