Tragic ex-Man Utd trialist, 20, killed himself after being plagued by injuries

A PROMISING young footballer described as an “exceptional talent” tragically took his own life after a series of injuries ended his career, an inquest heard.

Joel Darlington, 20, once had trials with Manchester United and represented Wales at youth level before playing for a Welsh Premier League side.

But a broken arm and scar tissue in his back put an end to his pro career.
