Three thousand quid in a day is a fine start to this initiative to support our club in these exceptional circumstances.
As we are fanned owned Would be fantastic to hear of any Darlington players donating their salaries back to the club or offering to defer their salary until season restart, how about Ainge offering his salary and only accepting his BOSTON part of his salary?
Fan..I wouldn't give my salary back to my employer WHY should they??? They have mortgages and families to feed..

Those players who have other jobs and are still receiving their main salaries, not suggesting the few young lads that have no other income. Many fans on reduced incomes are still looking to support the club, why not players
Send a email and ask the club the question

:clap: another fantastic amount raised in short time from our tremendous fans ,we want this club to survive through this enforced stoppage, I personally think it will be a longer break than the FA are anticipating , everyone needs to take heed of the information being given and stop this virus spreading, the sooner people realise it's not a game and their lives are on the line and do this 2 meters apart and isolation the sooner this virus will end.
Keep safe, keep your families safe especially the elderly and look in anyone you know that are on their own, BE SAFE.

Eddie, if you were on a low wage for a struggling retailer, would you give your salary back to your employer? No you wouldn’t.

Stop making out like the players millionaires who can afford to go without pay, because they’re not. These “other” jobs are usually low-paid part-time jobs, needed because their part-time football wage doesn’t cover their cost of living for their families.

You are being unreasonable if you think players should put themselves through hardship at this time. Again, I can ask what are you doing to help the club, or your employer get through?

Stop being a plank and stop embarrassing yourself.

Eddie-rowles, you look at the situation through a "fan's eyes". You may want to do everything to save your club as would most fans

The footballers are employees, not fans. They act as employees. Have you as an employee given your salary back to your employer? No? Then why should the employees of any football club ( not just Darlington).

Don't try to shame employees for not acting the way fans would .

What initiatives have Spenny fans come up with to help their club out? Might be worth using some of their ideas if there are some good ones.

Their main initiative is the "leave it to Brad" initiative.

We should copy that and get Brad to keep us going as well.

To be fair the "leave it to Brad" initiative will be less of a risk than the "leave it to Raj" initiative employed elsewhere.
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"

Brad is paying the Spenny kids fees and repaying already paid fees back , Great gesture looking after his club can't knock him

Just a reminder to anyone who is not aware or who may have forgotten about this fundraiser. Very bad time to be asking for money but the club really needs your help right now. Only £10 pledged in the last 24 hours so really struggling and not even a third of the way there yet. If you can help please do but totally appreciate many will have other priorities at this time. Stay safe.

I'm pretty sure we'll hit the target based on our previous efforts. It's a tough time for all of us and well done to everyone who contributes. It's understandable if people can't but there's still 26 days to go and people might be chucking in as games come up. I wouldn't have travelled but I'll be putting in.

I contribute as each game comes along to spread it out.
