Re: Arena it is

Sensible decision from the league and brilliant work from David Johnson and all those who worked behind the scenes to achieve it.
Thanks again to them for the action taken to allow Darlington supporters to get to see the team play in the current difficult circumstances.

Re: Darlington MP

Unbelievable stuff on his Twitter about Newcastle https://mobile.twitter.com/Gibbo4Darlo/status/1293855035248517120 And some blunt replies when questioned by darlo fans! His replies, such as they are, tend to be along the line that he is “Simply acting for constituents who have asked for help [as i...

Re: Playoffs

BBC commentators have said that they are surprised at just how busy the “press” area is and also at just how many “stewards” are present at the play off final.

Re: North West based Darlington fans

I tend to decide quite late about going to games and sometimes stay for a drink in Darlington after the match so the time I want to leave the town varies so I will be sticking with the train even though it does cost more.
Thanks for the suggestion though.

Re: The Team 20/21 season

I think that it would be helpful if anyone commenting on the actual or potential liabilities under the agreement / contact / lease/ license with DRFC could mention whether or not they have seen, or have a copy of, the actual signed agreement. On a somewhat tangential point while I am no contract / c...

Re: Away kit poll

Since this shirt was decided by such a small (almost Brexitesque) majority do we now get a vote on the real shirt the team will be wearing next season with proper hoops and whatnot?

Great from the supporters but others too have contributed to this. In one sense it is our job as owners to fund the club so we might be seen as just doing our job but even so all of our supporter / owners have done phenomenally well and deserve a pat on the back for hitting this target.

Re: Spennymoor Players - Charged with betting offences

Since being made aware, the club has completed a programme of education for all of its staff, volunteers and players with the support of the FA. Wow, a 'programme of education'. Rather overblown approach, isn't it, when the rule is as simple as "you are not allowed to bet on any football, anywhere ...

Re: Away Kit

Unfortunately we do have some restrictions on away shirts which means we can’t get something bespoke so it’s more which colour rather than which design Can we have any standard Puma design? They have a decent range https://www.prodirectsoccer.com/l/mens/departments-teamwear/activity-football/brand-...

Re: Darlington V Walsall Match Thread

I was not disappointed with anyone in a Darlo shirt tonight but if I had to pick one player as the most outstanding performer tonight it would be Michael Liddle. He is a class act at full back.

Just left Nottingham where a large contingent of PNE supporters left the train leaving us in relative peace.
Looking for reward to the afternoon in Kings Lynn but as everyone else has pointed out this is a tough fixture
