Darren Jarman is a three time AFL premiership player and AFL Hall of Fame inductee.
Darren made his debut for North Adelaide at the tender age of 18, and quickly established himself as an integral member of the side, starring in their 1987 SANFL grand final triumph.
After representing South Australia at State level, he was awarded North Adelaide’s best and fairest honor in 1990, and was soon snapped up by Hawthorn in the newly established Australian Football League. There, he was integral in Hawthorn’s premiership success, earning the clubs 1995 Best and Fairest award, in addition to AFL All-Australian honors.
In 1996 he returned to his home State and was instrumental in leading the Adelaide Crows to back-to-back premierships. He was unpredictable and versatile, which rendered him virtually unmarkable to the opposition, “the jack of all trades”, being lethal in forward, half-forward and central positions.
In 2001 he retired a 374 game legend, and was inducted into North Adelaide Football Club’s ‘Team of the Century’.
