Aldershot manager, Terry Brown commented on Roach's performance in a friendly against Maidenhead United; "I think Darryl did well, to be fair the boy's hardly trained and we've come in and put him into two games. He's got talent and you can see that but he doesn't look anywhere near as fit as he should be but that's understandable."

In January 2005, he went on to spend time at Notts County on trial, playing for their reserve team. Roach then joined Southern League Division One East club Tilbury in February 2005, before later moving onto Wingate & Finchley in March 2005.
