Re: "Darlo Staff"

I also find this annoying. Just as a matter of interest can you explain to us who is entitled to a 'staff badge'. Just curious really as we are not exactly flush and capacity at grounds could be a bit tight. How about nobody? The only employees of the club pretty much are the coaches and the player...

Re: FAO: CIC administration

My info is that Still_darlo has been emailed 4 times in response to his emails.

Laura will PM him through here to try and make sure a connection is made.

There is a lot going on in the background but we are pretty much up to date on CIC admin.

I don't mind whether it is an individual or a team, as long as they can deliver.

Could you pass me their details?

Not all posters will carry all the messages though. We are gettin...

Re: posters for games

I am liking some of these ideas and offers of help.
What we need is to be able to get the key messages to the fans who don't read the Echo or come on here.
Leaflets and posters would be an effective way to do this.
Let me chew over how best to make this happen and come back on here later!

Re: posters for games

We were talking about exactly this on Sunday at the board meeting and we are looking for around 40 windows in town who would be willing to carry posters.

We will need someone who is willing to design them for us though, any offers?
It is imperative that they look credible and professional.

Re: We are "Darlington 1883"

But Darlington AFC, or AFC Darlington weren't clear front runners anyway, so it's not even as if the majority has been denied is it? 1883 beat everything else in the poll we ran (222 votes vs 142). While it's hardly MORI, it was indicative enough that we could feel we had enough fan backing to prop...

So are we Darlington 1883 FC or Darlington FC 1883 or just Darlington 1883? Its Darlington 1883 The league may add "FC" to the end of it, but again there were lots of reasons why we were concerned about adding "FC" to the end of the submission.

Re: We are "Darlington 1883"

I can't see why we couldn't have been Darlington AFC when the previous name was Darlington FC. It would be interesting to see if the 1883 board could categorically say that the FA ruled out Darlington AFC. If they did, then fair enough. Some weeks ago the FA told us that "if" we needed to change na...

We didn't have the opportunity to submit one name and then await feedback, then try another of that wasn't allowed as the deadline was very tight as the league are already well behind on their admin and wanted a name today that was going to be acceptable.
