Cricket Club article on Feethams and Darlington FC

Post by dfc1883 » Wed Oct 17, 2012 8:45 am

Did anyone read the pdf that the cricket club issued about Darlingtons time at Feethams? (It was posted on the DFC facebook page)

http://darlingtoncc.no-ip.org/Club/News ... n%2030.pdf

I thought they hated the football club?, and was surprised to see how sentimental they are / were about the football club.

It kills me that Feethams is still an empty plot of land, and one that we need.

I didn't realise the cricket club got a cut on the Feethams bar takings?

They used to always have the Cricket Club bar open on match days. Especially in the days before we had the new East Stand.

I know the Mission Impossible crew used to drink there a lot, for a time anyway.

Still remember the night we beat Hereford to get to Wembley, the cricket club was still bouncing at one in the morning
