Darren Brian Salton (born 16 March 1972 in Edinburgh) is a former Scottish under-21 international footballer, whose career was cut short by injuries suffered in a car accident.

Playing career

Darren Salton joined Luton Town as a trainee in 1988, along with a friend from Edinburgh, Paul Telfer. Salton signed professionally in March 1989, and was capped six times by Scotland under-21 before he made his league debut at Elland Road against Leeds United in 1992.[1]

Salton's career was over before it even started, when he and Telfer were involved in a car crash in late November 1992. Telfer suffered only minor injuries, but Salton, on the other hand, was severely injured. At one point it wasn't even known if he would survive, and although he eventually did recover, the leg injuries suffered in the accident ensured the he never played professionally again.[1][2]

Non-playing career

Salton still lives in the Luton area, and was manager of Southern League side Hitchin Town from December 2004 until November 2007.[3] After a spell as assistant manager at Hemel Hempstead, he became assistant manager at Slough Town in March 2009.[1][4]
