BBC SCOTLAND - DARRYL MARFO & BATTERSEA BACKGROUND

A fantastic piece published by BBC Scotland: Marvellous Darryl Marfo's moving climb to Scotland prominence


"Mammoth was the turning point. Mammoth was his mate's dad, an old-school prop forward out of Battersea Ironsides.

He invited young Darryl along for a training session and immediately the boy knew that he'd found his sport. On the estate, he'd played some football and a little basketball, but this was different.

For most of his young life, he was getting into trouble for being boisterous and loud. Now he was getting praise. He loved it from the start."
