Re: Open Day - Shirts and Season Tickets

The difference between this year and previous years is all of the profit is going towards making our club better. It is irrelevant which division we're in, a shirt is a shirt.

Re: Darlington FC Online Store

Hi Hilly, I've done a bit of research and found this: Does PayPal permit transactions for pre-sale items? Pre-sale items are advertised for sale before the seller has the items. Often, these items are sold before they are available to the general public. Or, the seller uses the funds from the sale t...

I'm with Hilly on this one. All these little things are so important to get right, the merchandise looks terrible, the badge is so poor quality it's unreal. It's void of colour and looks cheap.

Re: Official Poll - name change

Tori, and everyone else for that matter, do you think it would be a good idea to have a couple of stages of votes? So say take the best 3 winners of this extensive list, and put them into a final vote, that means everyone who voted for one that didn't make the final cut will still get a chance to pi...

Re: New Strip Chosen

How about taking pre-orders for shirts on the Darlington club shop site? Then we can order accordingly quickly instead of just taking a stab in the dark at how many of every size we will need every time we re-stock. The system of ordering on demand worked wonders with the scarfs, and it's good that ...

I dont get why clubs don't canvass fans opinions more when it's them who will be buying it. Own goal IMO Especially as we're a fans club, we should have most definitely asked fans opinions before committing, and if we're paying for a bespoke design, surely keeping it simple is cheaper?

The stupid side panels, too many hoops and half hoops, needless red - I don't see why we need that. The side panels confuse me slightly, from the front they are white, from the back they are black. And if they are half white / half black then It all seems a little too much. Also, I don't like the w...

Re: new strips

Can you make sure they are full unbroken hoops please?

There are so many 'kind of, almost hoop designs', where they are broken by a white vertical line under the arms or have a black back.

Let's get back to traditional hoops, plain and simple smart design because less = more.

Thank you :)

I can picture the scene later in the year when it's going to rain a great deal on matchdays.

Do you think it would be a wise idea f...

I too would be fully behind a move back to Feethams, even if it meant staying two years at Shildon instead of one. We're in a unique position of potentially going back there. If we go anywhere else that will be it forever, so for me it's worth trying to put everything into get back there if there is...

I think it's a bad idea to do 2 for 1 unless every share is available for 2 for 1 (just make more shares available) People stopped buying because they felt they were paying double for exactly the same thing that someone else had bought for cheaper. If having a 2 for 1 tag make people more likely to ...

Is this happening for this Saturdays game, or have we given up trying to get big crowds in?

I can't get to the ground during the week as I finish work after the ground is closed, and the Cornmill stall was a great way for me to buy tickets.

Their fans are more likely to be interested in buying those shirts and make us more money.

Great, that's pleasing to hear - £37,500 would have a been a huge fee for us to pay.
