Background

DeLuise was born in 1971 in Los Angeles, California. He is the youngest son of actor and comedian late Dom DeLuise and actress Carol Arthur (née Arata), and the brother of actor, writer, director Peter DeLuise and actor Michael DeLuise.

Career

Farrell made over 400 appearances in the Football League for Wycombe Wanderers, Peterborough United and Boston United between 1995 and 2007. Farrell began his career at non-league club Redditch United in 1991 before joining Aston Villa in 1992 for a fee of £45,000. He made eight league and cup appearances for Aston Villa in three seasons and then joined Wycombe Wanderers for a fee of £100,000, where he made over 70 appearances in all competitions in two seasons.

He moved on to Peterborough United in June 1997, where he spent nine seasons, making almost 400 appearances and scored 52 goals, and became a London Road legend. He was not offered a new contract at the end of the 2005–06 season, due to the manager wanting someone younger, and left the club, joining Boston United in June 2006, where he made 43 appearances during the 2006–07 season as Boston were ultimately relegated from the Football League in May 2007. After one season at Boston, Farrell joined Conference National side Burton Albion in July 2007.

He was released by Burton after his one-year contract expired at the end of the 2007–08 season and re-joined Boston United, now in the Northern Premier League Premier Division, in June 2008. Farrell will be making a rare appearance on the 18th October 2015 when he plays for the Posh Legends. The Posh Legends will be taking on the infamous Thomas Cook in a charity match for a very worthy cause.

Thomas Cook have their very own football legend, James Fletcher, who played for Boston United in his hay day.
