Darren Blewitt (born 3 September 1985 in Newham) is an English footballer who played in the Football League for Southend United.[1] A defender, he now plays for Brentwood Town.


As a youngster, Blewitt was associated with Norwich City, but joined West Ham United while still at school and came through their academy system.[2] He played regularly for and captained the reserves, and was an unused substitute for the first team. In February 2005 Blewitt joined Football League Two club Southend United on loan to gain experience of first-team football.[3] However, his debut in the Football League was also the only appearance he made in Southend's first team, as an 89th-minute substitute in a 3–0 win away to Cheltenham Town.[1] Blewitt spent the first half of the 2005–06 season on loan at Conference club Hereford United where he made eleven appearances,[1] and had a trial with Oxford United in February 2006.[4] West Ham released Blewitt at the end of that season.[5]

After a trial with Dagenham & Redbridge, Blewitt joined Billericay Town, where he spent two seasons before being released and joining Heybridge Swifts.[6] His stay was brief: he left following a change of management,[7] made one appearance for Enfield Town,[8] then, in September 2008, joined Brentwood Town,[9] where he won both Manager's and Players' Player of the Year awards for the 2008–09 season.[10] After Brentwood dismissed manager Carl Griffiths at the start of the 2009–10 season, Blewitt moved to Aveley.[11] He then re-signed for Brentwood in November 2009.
