Re: Potential new signings

We have to be careful how and when to bring new players into the club ,the situation with this CORONAVIRUS could go on for a lot longer than has been said by people, I can't see a start date until maybe late September at the earliest maybe even after that, costs to the club have to remain serviceab...

New Virtual 50 / 50 Draw

... is only two days away. Don't know why it hasn't appeared before, I just stumbled on it on the Club website, so be sharp lads. Hope I've copied the link correctly. If not, you know the way to the website, or someone can sort out my IT incompetence. :roll: darlingtonfc.co.uk/news/enter-our-virtual...

I've never noticed this before (and I've watched that goal so many times), and the camera angle isn't great, but was there a hint of offside about Senior when Wright headed on Hatch's first header from the throw in?* Try and pause the film just as Wright heads it. Maybe it came off the defender and...

Quite a lot of Darlo fans have a few miles on the clock so even when restrictions are lifted and games go ahead crowds could well be down.

Interesting that he blamed a lot of the problems with Darlo on the Banking finance problems.. Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't that happen in 2008, which was well before we had our problems with him. I think he just blamed a lot of the problems on anything other than himself A bit like Trump then...

A cup presented to the club with the most distasteful owners perhaps ?

Probably a dead cert for net season and no games required.
Who's going to pick the winner of that? There would be more nominees than entries for the Grand National. :roll:

Re: National League advises ending the season

Given the average attendances in NLN & an estimated pitch size of 100m by 76m, with 10m of terracing (no seats), using the 2m social distancing, by my back of envelope calculations 6 clubs would not be able to fit in normal crowds. Reckon 1400 is the limit. On the pitch, it would be even harder to ...
