Re: DFCSG Hospitality Raffle?

You beat me to it. A hospitality package for two at Darlo's home game against Bradford PA on Saturday is up for grabs courtesy of Edwin Neale who has kindly donated the prize. Entry in the draw is just £2 with all proceeds going towards the "Raise the Roof" (TM SwansQuaker83) fund. The draw will tak...

Nothing on the Echo website to indicate who is coming in. There wouldn't be. News like this will be kept under an embargo and released by all parties at the same time.

Re: New manager poll

If Hardy has said he is happy at Whitby then that’s fine. But like it has been said in a number of posts above, he is ambitious manager and wants to progress in management, it would be surprising if he hasn’t at least spoken to someone about it. At this level, in this area the Darlo job is the best...

Re: New manager poll

Names like Graeme Lee at Boro and Kevin Richardson at Newcastle (both with previous Darlo experience) and granted the latter was part of the doomed Staunton era but doesn't mean to say that he would...
