Darren Randolph
Darren Randolph (born 12 May 1987) is an Irish professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Middlesbrough Football Club. He is a Republic of Ireland international, having previously played for the Republic of Ireland U21 team. Randolph has also represented Ireland at basketball.




Having progressed through the youth ranks at Ardmore Rovers and Premier League club Charlton Athletic, Randolph turned professional in 2004 with Charlton. He spent time on loan at Welling United, Accrington Stanley and Gillingham before making his Charlton debut in the last game of the 2006–07 season. Despite the club’s relegation from the Premier League, he was unable to cement a regular starting position, and had two loan spells during 2008, at Bury and at Hereford United. Having made just 20 appearances for Charlton in six years, he moved on to Scottish Premier League side Motherwell in July 2010. He played regularly for Motherwell over three years, then returned to England to join Birmingham City, for whom he missed only one Championship match in two seasons. He signed for West Ham United in 2015.




In 2006, Randolph made ten appearances for the Republic of Ireland under-21 side, and a single appearance for the Republic of Ireland B team. He made his full international debut for the Republic of Ireland in September 2012, in a 4–1 victory over Oman. He is currently the starting goalkeeper for Middlesbrough Football Club and the Republic of Ireland national football team.
