The talented McCauley re-joined the Bannsiders in August 2014 after a spell with North-West neighbours Institute. The winger was allowed to depart The Showgrounds to concentrate on other commitments, but since his return, he has been a regular on the left-hand side of midfield. The former Celtic trainee has an eye for goal and scored a memorable hat-trick against Portadown in November 2015. Darren showed a high level of consistency last season as he scored 20 goals – including the opener against Cliftonville in the Irish Cup final.
