Didn’t we sign a Dutch keeper at roughly the same time?

Re: Chester game....

Was anyone there for the 4-4 a few years ago? I think Greg Blundell made his debut for them? Sodje scored a hat trick, we were 4-2 up with 0.653 seconds to play and managed to stuff it up.

Team photo competition

I picked up an old Darlo team photo from an antique shop in Rhos on Sea today for a quid. The team is: Furphy, Henderson, Turner, Bulch, Watson, Bell, Fletcher, McGrath, Carr, Milner & Morton.

The first person to name the year the photo was taken can have it.

Alan Walsh

Trivial trivia for a Sunday night and many may know this already (many more will be massively disinterested) but I was today years old when I found out that Darlo legend Alan Walsh’s daughter is married to actual Frasier.

Re: Best Striker For Darlington

I liked watching Carl Airey & Gary Macdonald in partnership in the mid 80s and Alan Walsh was sublime before that. The strange thing about David Currie was that the season before he turned it on, he was appallingly poor - ducking out of challenges and not contesting headers. I don't think I've ever ...

Colwyn Bay away - for travelling fans

I've been exiled in Colwyn Bay for the last 7 years and I'm really looking forward to going to the game on Saturday with a few friends. I thought I'd give travelling fans a brief bit of info. The ground is on Lanelian Road which is actually in Old Colwyn about 2 miles from Colwyn Bay and there is a ...

You're missing a bit before that too. It's all hypothetical from start to finish. It's not going to happen - just a bit of Friday time wasting really. No need for a reasoned thesis.

Andy Collet had retired from playing by the age of 33. Craig Liddle retired when he was 33 having spent a lot of time out injured. Marco Gabbiadini ...

Would you rather....

Option 1 A 10 year steady rise through the divisions under the current ownership model, culminating in consolidation in League 2. The club remaining financially viable with the odd player going on to bigger and better things and the club playing in front of 3000-5000 people in the town. Or Option 2 ...

Anyone remember the Torquay promotion match from that season? Puddles all over the pitch, torrential rain, the match was a farce.
Absolutely lashed it down. That was the game we had a Moroccan or Algerian keeper I think.

I'm not going but I've not been to an away game since 4-4 away at Chester in about 2004 so I won't be missed. Agree with the principle though. Power to the people.
