Re: Darlington's 'demise'....

The demise he refers to is in our no longer being a league club, and County Durham not therefore having one. That is true. He even says he takes no pleasure in it. Why every statement anyone makes nowadays has to be seen to offend somebody baffles me. But he conveniently omitted Sunderland! Sent fr...

Re: Kings Lynn town or Warrington town

I thought Warrington were in our league, didnt they beat Shields in final, or has it all changed There's then a "super playoff" between the playoff winners of the four leagues at that level. The two winners from those will move up. I think this is a one off for this season ahead of restructuring th...

Re: The silken maccalsfield

What a farce that enfield situation is, worse than the northwichs. I would say theres only 1 true successor the one that actually plays in the town Enfield Town, the club who play in the Borough were formed before the original Enfield FC ceased to exist, so can't legally be the successor club, albe...

Re: The silken maccalsfield

It is virtually impossible to work out which of the three Enfield clubs are the genuine successor Enfield FC - the club that we beat twice in our Conference season of 89-90 (1-0 and 3-0). They were however, a major non league club for decades and would sit in todays era as a doppelganger to Telford...

Re: The silken maccalsfield

Re: Darlington FC fightback victories

Coming from 2 down at home to Hartlepool to win 5-2. McClean in the tin shed end before half time then 4 from Alan Walsh in the Polam end in the second half. About 1981 I think. Also coming from 3-1 down at Salford to win 4-3 has got to be worth a shout. The Pools 5-2 was the first one coming to mi...

Re: Playoffs tonight

It's very sad, that the club feels that the only way to get fans to an away game, is to organise travel. This goes to show that they have reached their level and they couldn't support National League football. Alternatively, it could be that it is a club rewarding it's fans loyalty and providing so...

He's being told to cut from what is presumably an unsustainable budget for a club with gates of 6/700 down to Northern League wages. Maybe this is an attempt by the club to reduce spend to a level that they can pay back any debt created by being unsustainable. I presumed they were spending their mo...
