Out in 2 days, who would you like first game?

Personally would love Chester away. Weekend away, few beers and 3 points :D

Wonder what our Boxing Day/New Year's Day game will be with Harrogate Town out of the league?

I'd imagine it'll be Bradford PA as I doubt they'd want us to be playing York on those 2 days and Spennymoor and Blyth will get each other over the festive periods.

Why would "they" not want us to play York? Chance of us / York making too much money from it?
"At a meeting held at the Grammar School on Friday last - Mr Phillip Wood M.A., in the chair - it was resolved to form an Association Football Club for Darlington and neighbourhood. The opinions of those present were so unanimous as to the desirability of this step, that a committee was formed to complete the organisation of the club, and Mr Craven, 17, Garden Street, was appointed secretary pro tem." - The Northern Echo, Monday 23rd July 1883

Bradford Pa will probably end up with Guiseley, so odds on we’ll get York

Didn't York have North Ferriby last year? if that correct, then York have lost their "pair" as well. Would make logical sense therefore to pair York & Darlington.

However as sense is in short supply, the fixtures will probably send Darlington to Telford & York to Nuneaton instead

I think people are over egging a game against York. It is just York.

Exactly, the police won't want us playing York on a Bank Holiday or a Saturday. I'd imagine York away will be midweek in September like last season.

I reckon we will get Blyth over Christmas and York will get Spendy.
Just hope we get York away on a weekend, no reason why we shouldn’t.

We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

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

May need an easier home fixture, so we don't do a Salford first game. some ex league outfit to attract the floating support.

Never understood why they cram so many games into the first few weeks of the season. Seven in 23 days I make it.

I always assumed it was to take a bit of pressure off ahead of the inevitable postponements once the weather turns, gramps.
