Darren started his career in football as a trainee at Carlisle United, where he stayed for 7 years before being transferred to Huddersfield Town for £225,000. He had a difficult time there however, he even scored a bizarre own goal against Ipswich Town, in which he was passing the ball back to Town’s keeper Steve Francis and it somehow went through his legs and into the goal.

He went to York City in 2000, before leaving to join Chester City after York’s relegation to the Football Conference.

He spent just one year with us as the Deva Stadium before joining non-league side Barrow under Lee Turnbull.

After Turnbull was sacked he had a brief spell as Caretaker Manager before the Appointment of Phil Wilson.

Wilson set about bringing in his own players and Edmondson left Barrow and signed for Workington. He made his debut for Workington on January 7, 2006 at Worksop Town. He scored his first goal for the club at Alfreton Town on March 14.

On Wednesday November 5 Workington Manager Tommy Cassidy resigned to take over at Newcastle Blue Star taking with him his number 2 Tony Elliott. The Workington board acted quick and appointed Edmondson as caretaker manager on the very same day.

He was later given the job on a fulltime basis and was officially announced as manager at the next home tie against redditch on October 6, 2007.
