Team of the decade: Darius on his successful two-year stay

A summary of the best AFC Wimbledon moments for Darius Charles

31 March 2020

The arrival of Darius Charles at AFC Wimbledon in March 2016 helped spark a play-off charge that ended with Wembley glory.

Initially signed on loan from Burton Albion, Darius formed a solid centre-back partnership with Paul Robinson that swept Wimbledon into League One. With his commanding displays at the back and his great personality off the pitch, it's easy to understand why Darius made your team of the decade

Speaking during his time here, Darius said: "As and when you leave a club, you like to look back on your time and say 'was I for the betterment of the club?' My time at the club has been productive, so it's nice to be able to give that to the fans: to give them a promotion, to be here while the plan for the new stadium was approved. With two trips out at Wembley, I can be proud of what I contributed."

Take a look at a video we've put together on Darius, which contains interview clips, and a reminder of his cracking goal at Oxford United.
