Re: B T B Email

I think most of the 1000 members would be happy to pay £50 membership perhaps spread over 2 instalments August and January’s it would make a huge difference to the coffers roughly an increase of £30k. With more people likely joining to vote on future location it could be the right time, at the end o...

Re: B T B Email

I’ll continue mine for one more season but imo the club needs substantial outside investment to move us forward to the National League. After speaking to SG board member at the last match there is no appetite to do so as he thinks some board members would resign. So appears we are relying on fans go...

Re: Darlington V Brackley

We might as well pack up then hey I don’t think people are saying that, but fans need to see a plan on how we proceed whether that’s DJ or DFCSG, or if we are planning 2-3 seasons at this level then come out and say it and fans can then decide whether they support it or not. Hopefully there’s still...

Re: Darlington V Brackley

It’s getting to the time of year again where the club will be asking the fans to invest in the budget for next season, with crowds dropping it’ll be up to us to supplement the budget. Given last years recruitment I don’t have faith that TW can spent it wisely enough and I imagine a lot of people fe...

Re: National League Stadia

At least the club would not need to fork out huge sums required to get back the football league or even national league on the infastructure side of things Little expenditure to move back to Arena, more corporate facilities and you can actually see the pitch properly plus I reckon they will be bett...

Re: Darlington V Southport match thread

Wasn’t pretty today but a point. Decent crowd as well which included 60 in hospitality according to Craig Morley. I wonder if that was the mild temperatures or the offer. If it worked they should do it for Wednesday night.

Re: New Finance Director

Spot on Divas that’s his profession so I’ve no doubt he will work within the budget and as a director he has to ensure DFC is not knowingly trading as insolvent. However getting to the next level is the difficult bit, we still haven’t heard from anyone how we would fund to get into the national lea...

Re: Southport - Sat 16th Feb

Average attendance this season has been around 1350, needs to be closer to 2000 if we are going to kick on. Good point regarding converting the fans via a one off game in a relegation scrap, it isn’t ideal and not many convert into repeat customers. Maybe some fans will return and we add an extra 2...
