Excellent performance today, for those who stayed away just because of a bit Darlo drizzle.
You missed a corker :thumbup:

Regarding the pitch, there are certain areas that are visible where the grass hasn't quite fully come through although during the game with a lot of rain I felt the pitch held up very, very well.

I'm sure that a 7 day break will do it good also. Hopefully the weather is kind and it will look even better next Saturday.

Very impressed with James Caton. One goal, one assist and the other 2 goals scored from his crosses.

Bit disappointing given 3 wins, 10 goals and back in town. Possibly some folk on holiday still, as quite a few empty seats in the new stand? Either that or Darlo fans have no friends ;)


Given that is lashed it down from 2pm - and the lack of cover at BM - I am not surprised at the attendance.

The gate was still +200 up on the same fixture from last season (at a similar time of year with much better weather).

If we continue playing like we did today the crowds will surely pick up our best home performance for a while

I'm going to have naughty thoughts about Ferguson tonight. He's too good for this level. How he didn't get MOM is beyond me. In the current market, he must be worth £30M. Lol.

defence still causes palpitations. But last year, this team hit 4 in the same game. So I'm looking St the pluses.

I'm not his biggest fan. But Syers played very very well today.

Early days, but we're looking alright again. Tuesday is a big test

No if you read back I was merely correcting the guy who quoted that we had scored 6 goals in our 2 home matches, when it is actually 8. Geez, little things hey, but I guess the bottom line is we are scoring plenty at the moment! :thumbup:

Nobody said we'd scored 6 goals in 2 home matches.

Caton had a great game, he's quick, has an interesting repertoire of tricks, and great attitude. Also he seems to be the a good foil to the way Beck plays. Together they could make a great partnership.

To those upset about the absence of Cartman, I would ask this question. Would he have made the same impact today as Caton did????

Apart from the opening 30 seconds or so, I thought we played great today. We look 'full' of goals performing like that.

It would be nice if we could get regular crowds over 2000 but it appears some 'fans' in the Town still need convincing before they return. The weather didn't help just prior to kick off and it is holiday season too for others but hopefully we can increase the attendance as the season progresses

Perhaps 2 X £14 in three days knocked a few back.

3/3 Wins and 9 pts on the board. Can't ask for a better start.

Oh, and Hartlepool lost again. What a week!

Nail on head maybe in the future they could do a deal if there are 2 home games in 4 days buy both games for £25 only a suggestion

I thought Gainsborough the other night were a much better side than Alfreton who were there for the taking. Either that or we made Alfreton look very ordinary, but I felt that Gainsborough made us work much harder.
Whenever Darlington went forward they always looked likely to score and if some of our shots hadn't been blocked at the last moment we would have had more. Alfreton couldn't hit a barn door with their opportunities and left as a well beaten side.
Also if that was Darlington drizzle at the start, I dread to think what a Darlington downpour is.
Anyway we saw Darlington dazzle today.

Heavy rain started about 1 hour before the game and continued until drizzle arrived just before KO, so 300-500 missing folk was not a surprise. Tin Shed had louds of room (& noise), so the weather wasn't any issue for the large majority of fans.

The game started at high pace from Alfreton and as a result their goal came after at least 2 darlo player slipping in the puddles.

The surface drained quickly and Darlo soon got their Mojo going.

Alfreton had a few good players, but Darlo had 11, who played forcefully with both an aerial and a flanking game.

At half time Alfreton looked tired and Darlo improved their possession in the second half and dominated more and more.

Darlington were unlucky to only bag 4 goals, with their very high quality service.

The visiting directors were reported to be distraught after the match. Must have had some heavy bets go down.

I queried about availability of the empty seats and Steve Rees (the seat allocation volunteer) told me all are paid for and anyone can sit in them if their season ticket holders aren't attending.

I met 2 VERY loyal fans of the past in the bar pre-match who were home and away stalwarts who had fallen out of love with Darlo in the Reynolds era. One of them had not missed any games for over 10 years prior to the death of Feethams.

A win at York will definitely attract many new and disenchanted fans to Blackwell Meadows. The nearer we get to Poolie the more the ex fans will return.

Considering Darlo are only 3 games in, there was some very attractive & slick play today. I suggest a "kids go free game" is needed soon to get more new fans hooked.

In my view from behind the Alfreton goal Beck, Caton, Ferguson, Brown and Gillies were all valid candidates for the MOM, but really it was a great whole team performance.

Seems a pragmatic suggestion. May be one worth suggesting to the club?

Always have to be careful when doing any offer that you don't put season ticket holders 'out of pocket'. Assuming ST holders still get 2 games free a season this would need to happen 10 times to risk doing that.

Didn't help it lashing down between 2 and 3pm.


Exactly, the heavens opened up at around 2pm, could have knocked 400 to 500 off the crowd. I thought given the per match conditions a crowd of 1547 was excellent. Thought the pitch stood up really well to the trying conditions.

Think they are joint second. A Brackley guy scored 4 today (5 in total). He bagged all 4 in the last 20 mins.
