Darren’s fond farewell

Keepmoat tribute to a Titan of our game.

Last Saturday saw the funeral of Club Doncaster Titans founder and South Yorkshire Ability Counts giant Darren Warner.

Darren’s wife, Sharon, and sons Jordan and Cameron accompanied him to Rose Hill Crematorium, on Cantley Lane in Doncaster, where the regulation small group of mourners paid their final respects.

Covid-19 restrictions preventing the larger congregation at the Crematorium, hundreds of friends and family members paid their own fantastic tribute when the funeral cortege paused at the Keepmoat Stadium, the home of Doncaster Rovers.

For a moment, so many people whose lives had been touched by Darren took the chance to say their thank you and goodbye.

It was a fitting way for them to show how much Darren Warner meant to all of us.

We thank Sharon for her permission to use these photographs and send her and the boys our condolences and best wishes.

Remember, you can still donate to Dannyl Hall’s fundraiser for Darren https://uk.gofundme.com/f/darren-warner-rip. The appeal is fast closing in on its target of £3000. 


Darren was my true hero, I was proud of everything he achieved in life, my heart is broken but all the lovely comments have helped me though these last few weeks.

Daz, I hope you can see all these lovely comments !!’ And how much people appreciated what you gave.

 I’m so proud to be your wife; thank you for being you xxxxxx

I will always love you xxxxx
