Re: New Manager Interviews this week

If it does turn out to be Armstrong, perhaps he could bring in his son Luke on loan. Seems to have done well at Gateshead. Dan Maguire would be good too....

Re: Steve Watson - new York manager

If you've got the stamina, this look at the unfolding crisis behind the scenes at Gateshead under their dodgy and crackpot regime is worth a look...... but it's not for those of a nervous disposition..... https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/field-success-field-struggles-gat...

Re: BE PART OF THE FABRIC OF DARLINGTON FOOTBALL CLUB

Surpassed it. Our fans never cease to amaze me. The money we have raised over the past few years for what attendances we make, is staggering.

Re: Josh Heaton

Unfortunately things don't seem to be working out for him up in Scotland. He hasn't even been named on the team sheet in the last 5 games and he's only made 2 appearances this season in the cup back in July. It's a real shame as he was excellent for us! I could be wrong but I think he's been injure...

Re: Darlington V Altrincham

It will be interesting to see the line up that TW decides on for Saturdays game. Probably a reshuffle in the back 4 and definitely one in the midfield. I think we should still go for 4 4 2, Hughes needs a run of games, this is his chance. Maddison, Trotman Burn Galbraith O'Hanlon, Thompson Hughes E...

Not a local club but Sam Russell released by Forest Green. If he was coming back up north I’d like to think we’d be interested. Former team mate of Wright and White.

Re: Gainsborough v Darlington Match Thread

Let’s be honest Wright wouldn’t have been in many fans top ten choices. I hope he can turn it round but the signs aren’t great at the moment. Never mind play offs, if you offered me a fourth bottom finish I’d snap your hand off!

Re: Gainsborough v Darlington Match Thread

I Think if we (as seems likely) suffer another defeat today, the patience Wright and White have been shown by the fans so far will surely waiver.

We all knew the importance of this game. To be two down after 20 minutes just ain’t good enough.

Sign him up.
Weren't we in for him at the same time as York initially? I'd still take him tbh even if its only three games. He scored a belter for them on the weekend.

Yes, Beck does look worn out. I think I'm right in saying he's scored one goal! The same as James Caton, and yet Caton picks up most of the criticism . I'd think that is mainly because we know what a huge threat Beck can be if he is on form, Caton hasn't shown us as fans the highest level he can pl...
