Darren Ferguson

Darren Ferguson is in his third stint as the manager of Peterborough United. As a player, he was coached at Manchester United by his father, Sir Alex Ferguson. He won the Premier League with the club, before going on to spend much of the remainder of his career in the lower divisions with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Wrexham.

His first managerial appointment was as player-manager of Peterborough in 2007. He led the club to successive promotions, guiding them to the second-tier of English football for the first time in 17 seasons. He was also voted the LMA’s League One Manager of the Year in 2009.

After a spell at Preston North End in 2010, he returned to Peterborough and led the club to promotion back to the Championship via the League One play-offs. After two seasons in the Championship, he joined Doncaster Rovers in 2015 and led the club to automatic promotion through a third place finish in League Two in 2017.

He subsequently became Peterborough United manager for a third time in January 2019 and returned the club to the Championship as League One runners up in 2021.
