Who we are Our Ambassadors Darren Gough Darren, nicknamed the 'Rhino', is a retired England cricket player and former captain of Yorkshire County Cricket Club. The spearhead of England's bowling attack through much of the 1990s, he is England's second highest wicket-taker in one-day internationals with 234, and took 229 wickets in his 58 Test matches, making him England's ninth most successful wicket-taker of all time. In December 2005, Darren took part in the BBC television show Strictly Come Dancing, partnered with British National champion Lilia Kopylova. Gough noted that this would keep him fit while allowing him to spend the winter with his family and, visibly at least, had the support of his England colleagues. He went on to win both the main series and the 2005 Christmas Special. Two years later he returned to win the 2007 Christmas Special. Did you know that before joining Yorkshire County Cricket Club, Darren was a professional footballer at Barnsley!
