Darren Purse
Guy Lochhead, 21/02/12
Veteran English footballer who has captained Cardiff City and Sheffield Wednesday, and currently defends for Plymouth Argyle. He has had a long and varied career in English football, with more than 450 appearances in the Football League and Premier League since 1994. He is one of the only outspoken footballers on LGBT matters within the football industry. Purse is a solid, reliable defender who has used his position in the public eye to discuss an issue that most footballers are terrified of. He initially turned down professional football so that he could complete his A-levels. That’s just sound. He is the sort of role model that all footballers should strive to be. I will include some sort of cheap football memorabilia – perhaps an autographed photo or a trading card…
