Our players are on the books surely, I'm sure they are not self employed. This 80% thing (if I've understood i correctly) could really be a lifeline for DFC -
I hope so

He has said 80% coverage of salaries for staff who are furloughed. I think it's fair to say that our players are furloughed as they are not allowed to work - so would we expect to be covered?
Does it depending they’re on employment contracts or self employed contractor status?

Re: Hereford

A good point that halts the slide in form. Honestly, I would’ve taken a point before kick off, and a late equaliser is always nice. Haven’t seen any highlights yet, obviously, but nice to see Omar on the scoresheet. He’s been underused lately imo. Should we not have a bit more ambition than to be s...

Re: Hereford

Pretty slim chance this game will go ahead, if not for the condition of the pitch then for the water levels in the surrounding areas. If it is off it would be interesting if an open training session could be arranged, maybe a couple of quid in to raise some funds?

Re: League restructure

The ideal scenario would be for chorley, fylde and chesterfield to stay in the relegation zone, and for Wrexham to fall in and all drop down to our division. Also, if Kings Lynn and Brackley could go up, and Blyth could pull themselves out of it then the north / south line would have to moved, possi...

Re: New kit

Totally agree. None of them are proper Darlington shirts. Black and white hoops are distinctive and unique and I bet loads of other teams would like to have that. To be fair that first one is pretty similar to our kit from 1889 (black strip down the middle). We had stripes, quarters and a solid bla...

Not everyone is as cautious with their contracts. Kings Lynn have just signed striker Dayle Southwell and given him a two-and-a-half-year contract. He had apparently been on more than £1,000 a week at Halifax. Another club with an owner pumping the money in. This is why we must aim for promotion as...

To be honest the direct style of play doesn't sound too different to what we used to get to our current division.

This was with around 1600 in attendance. The thought of staring at those pale pink seats with only 6% of the arena filled is depressing.
