George Reynolds...

Would not surprise me if reynolds did all this for the attention and to tell us all hes still around. Not the 1st time hes caused a s*** storm for the publicity He’s not doing it for attention. He’s doing it because he’s a nasty, narcissistic, egotistical, misogynistic piece of work. If it was for ...

He’s also opened his own Academy in the North East. Not sure what his day job is anymore as he’s an accountant, so he’s either Mourinho or just sticking one up to DFC. Whatever good luck to him as he apparently loaned money to DFC. Ah, the shit-stirrer is back. Starting off a thread about the Heref...

Reynolds up to his usual tricks...

I looked at the comments. Some are pro Reynolds, suggesting that there is always a vendetta against him - others are anti Reynolds suggesting he's an out and out wrongun. The truth probably somewhere in-between. Nope, the truth is the latter. Reynolds is a crook, a thin-skinned narcissist and a cha...

League restructure

I don't really know if there is an easy answer. If you make the Northern Premier League go straight into Conference North you give step 3 Northern sides a 1 in 12 chance of getting to Step 2 whilst giving the rest of the county a 1 in 36 chance - not sure that will be interpreted as fair. This isn’...

Re: League restructure

The point is surely the promotion structure entrenches the Midlands-ifcation (a word I've just made up) of the league, in that it guarantees two Midlands sides a promotion each season, providing equal weight with the NPL which is for actual Northern sides (geographically speaking). This becomes prob...

A tradition is always decided upon ultimately they don't just happen by chance. Why don't we alternate hoops and other if we start now and do it for the rest of time it becomes tradition right and is our identity.

Re: New kit

I’m pleased we kept the hoops/Hotizontal stripes. Since 2012 we’ve had a variation of them every season and I think we should adopt it as our identity. As a poster above said tradition has to start somewhere and I feel this is our chance to do it. We started out with this style then from the 50’s-9...

Not a fan of any to be honest.

2 makes us look like Fulham, 4 looks like a training top.

3 is hideous.

So by process of elimination I’m stuck with 1.
I voted 3....just be contrary to DG :)

Is it definitely because people are sick of hoops? I’m not seeing anything to support that idea. I mean it could be, and it’s a perfectly logical thought process, but where’s the actual evidence to support that hypothesis? Attendances have generally remained stubbornly around the 1200 to 1300 mark. ...

Or has been listed above Puma didn't provide a hooped design this season. Nice try, but it was a decision by the board.

Re: New kit

The club are probably in an impossible position because if they keep hoops, they'd potentially lose cash and some people would complain, if you lose hoops you might gain some extra £, but have some people complain. It's not an impossible position - make hoops one of the options - then let the fans ...

I don't think we've played in hoops for that much of the last 30 years, so to say it's our identity doesn't really work for me. Not true, we've played in hoops for most of the last 30 years.

The point isn’t about it “only being one season” which is a little patronising. The point is the club have decided our identity (or at least what a significant proportion view as our identity) is expendable at the cost of one year of kit sales, which may or may not work.

Totally agree. None of them are proper Darlington shirts. Black and white hoops are distinctive and unique and I bet loads of other teams would like to have that. To be fair that first one is pretty similar to our kit from 1889 (black strip down the middle). We had stripes, quarters and a solid bla...

Sorry but all this,"It is our heritage" comes from a far younger generation than I. Not once for over 40 years did I see "Hoops" until the 3 thin hoops made their debut in 1966.
