Although Darby was the captain throughout the 2008 reserve season which saw him lift both the reserve league title and Dallas Cup trophy within a matter of months of each other.

Darby made his debut coming off the bench at Spurs in the carling cup. He the went onto come on as a sub agianst Psv in the Champions league in December of the same year. The 2009/2010 season saw Darby make starts agianst Fiorentina and Reading, Stephen was praised for his perfomance agianst Reading by Jamie Carragher.
