Scottish striker Darryl Duffy signed a two year deal with Cheltenham Town on Thursday 21 July 2011 following his release from Bristol Rovers.
Darryl started his career with Scottish Premier League giants Glasgow Rangers and made his debut against Dundee United. He enjoyed a loan spell out at Brechin before departing the Ibrox Stadium due to lack of first team opportunities.
He moved to Falkirk in 2004 and, in his first season, he finished as the first division's top scorer with seventeen. He made 57 appearances and scored 27 goals for Falkirk before heading to England with Hull City for a reported £250,000 fee. First team opportunities were once again limited whilst with Hull but the striker enjoyed loan spells with both Hartlepool and Swansea before joining the Swans on a permanent basis in 2007.
Duffy, who has two appearances for the Scotland B team, made twenty appearances for Swansea before signing for Bristol Rovers in 2008. At the end of his first season with Rovers, he had scored 16 goals but he would soon find his first team appearances restricted once again.
Loan spells with Carlisle and Hibernian followed before Duffy was released at the end of the 2010-11 season.
Darryl made his competitive debut for Cheltenham as a substitute in the 1-0 opening day defeat against Gillingham on Saturday 6 August 2011.
