Re: Sports village

Don’t know what the problem is.They only wanted the council to come up with 17million :o :o They were never going to do that. I wonder how long DMP have kept this request for the council to stump up 85% of the project close to their chest, as surely if this had been their intention all along then i...

Re: 19/20 Season Ticket Refunds

Hope if any Darlo needs the money back at the moment they will ask for it - as a fans club we look after each other.

Re: Northern Echo...get it wrong again

Anyways hope that's clarified a few things and I don't see why the dispute between fans of both club. Any bad feeling is probably down to the Heed fans who were waving tenners at Darlo fans the last time we met at the arena when we were in the mire financially. I have no gripe with Gateshead as a c...

Re: Northern Echo...get it wrong again

The entire sports desk team were furloughed. Ironically Loughlin was on his way out until the Teesside editor position became available. Now he's treading on the toes of his former sports desk colleagues by doing their work while they are twiddling their thumbs. ‘Doing their work’ - undoing all the...

Brad has deep pockets, if he was offered similar contracts, only signing on fee must have bettered what a possible testimonial would have brought him, that's football good luck to thomo.
We know by now any chance to launch a sly dig at Darlo and the Spenny PR machine takes full advantage.

Re: Boost the budget

So what's the target Spen? You can donate £2 to £100 but no apparent totaliser unless you've put a link on the Spennymoor fans forum. Mind you the safety net of Uncle Brad's deep pockets must be reassuring. Your groundsman seems to have much time on his hands. No point in it really. Just a token ge...

Annoying if the local rag does not understand what we are doing there is no hope. This could be portrayed as a good news story. Fans rally round their club.
