I didn't realise that Thommo has now scored after yesterday's 2 goals, 84 in total which is only 15 behind our all time record goal scorer Alan Walsh on 99. Now that he has signed a new 2 year deal, he must have every chance of being the first Darlo player in our history to reach 3 figures.

Think Thompson only has 10 this season, all league goals.

Styche also has 10, 8 league and 2 cup.

Would be brilliant if Thommo gets his 100th goal and be our all time record goalscorer.Without doubt he will do it and really hope it will be at BM.What a signing he has been for us, right up there with the best.

I thought when I first read this that it didn't quite sound right, so I went back to check with the Darlo stats bible - Frank Tweddle's The Definitive Darlington FC. According to this Alan Walsh scored exactly 100 goals for Darlo, 87 league, 6 FA Cup, and 7 FL Cup. So Thommo will not be the first to score a ton, but may well have every chance of becoming the club's all time top scorer.

Ok sorry, I always thought Walshy had got 99 when he went to Bristol City.

I know it was only North Ferriby, but there were some very pleasing contributions. Great to see Wheatley back in the team and Gillies back amongst the goals. I hope we can get Glover signed up to a contract when he turns 17 - a couple of very impressive contributions when he came on yesterday.

Thought Ray Simpson bottled it when interviewing Whitey after the match, when he didn't ask about his sending off?

Looking at the highlights and reliving the cold, it's a wonder any type of football was played at all, it was like watching a match played on the summit of a windblown Cairngorm Mountain.

Darlo pushed the Crud encrusted ball around quite well considering, whilst some of the Ferriby players were just going through the motions.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

We did well, but North Ferriby have got to be the worst team we've played in a number of years. Firstly, their warm up didn't seem to include any coaches - amateurish. Secondly, when they had the wind in the first half, their tactics were to put 10 behind the ball. Individually they were pretty woeful. Feel sorry for the fans that turned up to watch them. Easiest game we will have in a long time

Wise to rest our 3 most productive players and give the others a chance. Darlo could have humiliated the opposition, causing some physical retribution and bad relations between clubs. North Ferriby are having a dire time and didnt need their noses rubbed into it. More goal difference would have been welcome, but hopefully that can be sorted in the next 7 games. We have bested Blyth and Spenny on run ins before and Kiddy could also bottle it. Blind Faith of fans has sometimes been rewarded in Darlo's past, so keep on hoping.

Who cares about relations between us and a club based in Hull? Eh.

Again, who cares? We humiliated them and could have had 10. Of course I wanted to see us rub their noses in it. They're at the bottom for a reason & we don't have time to show sentiment to others.

Just been reading some interesting stuff on N Ferriby and their demise. They apparently started this season with a budget of £76,000 and then that was cut by a third. They currently pay £1,600 in wages per week. To put that into perspective, Nick Haughton, who Salford bought from Fleetwood, is said to be on £2,500 per week.

The fans of North Ferriby have just rejected the chairman's bid to move them to Dunswell, deciding to stay in Ferriby. But another meeting about the club's future will be held on May 1. They could go under or have to drop much further down the pyramid.

Hard to believe they were FA Trophy winners and a National League side so recently. I suppose a village side has to find its own level once the bankrolling prop is pulled away. The chairman reckons they've got 70 to 100 "ardent supporters."

You could quite easily edit/replace Ferriby with Sunderland ;)

There's a great story about the owner of N Ferriby now proposing to breathe new life into the club by turning the ground into a travellers' site to boost revenue. I thought it might be an April 1 story but, no, he reckons he can squeeze 46 caravans onto the site. I think he's trying to wind up the local Nimby types :D .....
