If spennymoor can't play on their ground Thursday then why not ask M P Rugby club to use the arena, fans of both clubs won't want to play at Harrogate, I couldn't make Harrogate but could make spennymoor, or DMP. ARENA. as I, my sure others in the same boat, lost revenue to clubs.

Seems common sense to be at BM, but to be Spen's home game officially.

They might have to have more of the seats than us, to accommodate their season ticket holders who normally have seats. It makes way more sense than both sets of fans having to go to Harrogate.

My only thought about The Arena is , does it actually need inspecting and grading for football? It probably needs some National League inspectors to actually grade it for a football match just as a matter of course.

How embarrassing for Spennymoor to be outnumbered for such a crucial game if played at home and if the game is at Harrogate they'll be vastly outnumbered by Darlo fans. Wonder if Groves is paying for free transport to take Spennymoor ans down to Harrogate?

Does anyone know the ticket situation for our game with spenny Thursday? Is it all ticket or are we able to buy on the door?

I reckon if it's on at Spennymoor, we could take at least a 1000 to the game. If it's at Harrogate then 700. Can't wait for Thursday.

Would be nice to know where this local derby is to take place as travel plans need to be made. Anyone know when a decision is likely?

It's at Spenny subject to a pitch inspection by the National League altho not been said when that is. I don't think the League trust a local inspection because of what's happened in the past. If the pitch can't be used for football now it never will be until it is completely replaced.

Probably a good job they might only sneak into the playoffs in 7th, meaning all their games would be away, isn't it?

The pitch looks shiny too.

It's just the sun reflecting off the pools of water.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

If Darlington win the toss, will they defend the deep end in the first half?

Diving will take on a new meaning

Apparently just needs rolling before game can go ahead

Heaton will be okay in the deep end but I hope Gillies can swim!

Good excuse for Thompson and Gillies not to track back.

Glover can only play with parental supervision and his arm bands on.
