By all accounts us and Hartlepool have loaned Spennymoor Town pitch covers to try and get the quarter final replay v Bromley on tomorrow night.

Good to see us help out Spennymoor and repay favours from using the ground, not sure they will get the game on anyhow if the snow is as expected but can't knock them for trying.

Good to hear, but if the forecast is correct, there's no way the game will go ahead.

Great gesture by both Hartlepool and Darlington.

It's good to see local clubs helping each other out.

Thanks to both clubs

It may not be the pitch that will be the problem, clearing the terraces will be the problem area.

Good luck to them. I'll be somewhat envious if they make it to Wembley, but if they navigate Bromley and Gateshead, they'll deserve it.

I think it'll all be in vain, as heavy snow is falling and I'm sure it'll be worse up there.

Covers did the job as pitch is playable, but game off as owing to weather forecast ...


With Bromley having to travel so far


Shame, but thanks anyway to Darlington and Hartlepool

Sensible decision, but it doesn't help you're fixture backlog, especially if you win and then have to play an extra 2 semi-final games on consecutive Saturday's. You'll be knackered by the time you play us on Easter Monday.

Excellent of Darlington and Hartlepool to help us out in our time of need.

Really needed the game to be on tonight and it being rearranged for next Tuesday means Chorley away will now need to be moved. Paired with Telford and Kidderminster home games still to be rearranged, plus the Salford away and Brackley home fixtures if we go through, we'll have a very busy couple of months ahead in the run in to the Playoffs.

Credit where credit is due though. Brilliant gesture! Thank you!

There's hell on. Bromley players and fans arrive and game called off an hour before kick-off. Spenny will be playing three games a week if the gluepot doesnt recover soon.

I guess they'll be responsible for Bromley's travel expenses? Good job they have a rich patron. Fixture backlog for them will be a nightmare.

The FA Trophy quarter-finals really fired up the fans to turn out in numbers last night. Gateshead managed 684, including 125 Orient fans, while Brackley pulled in just over 500. The bankrollers must sometimes wonder why they bother.

A couple of taxis should suffice.

No, it’ll be a chance for the Newcastle fans to visit Wembley!

I seem to remember the crowds at the arena being equally shocking until we played Gateshead in the semi's so I wouldn't criticise something that we are also guilty of

Would we only get 559 fans if we were playing for a semi final place.Don't think so somehow.The support or lack of it that Gateshead get is a joke, why do the owners bother.

Everyone from Gateshead is a Newcastle fan. I don't think Brackley is a particularly big place either. Not sure what some fans expect other clubs to do sometimes, unless our fans are trying to brag

Which would be odd, as our home crowds are not particularly big considering the population of Darlington

Sometimes on facebook/twitter some of our fans are more obsessed about crowds than anything else

In the interests of accuracy, our FA Trophy quarter-final game against Salisbury at the Arena had a crowd of nearly 1,900.
