Re: Match Posters

I suppose one way of supporting this idea is a "next match" board on the main road. I regularly cycle to Southport and there's one on a major by-pass.

Re: New signings?

From the highlights Lexus seemed to do okay. He's only played 30 minutes of 270 so hopefully some game time will give him the experience.

Re: DFC Youth Academy

If you e mail Ray (as I have done in the past) and raise your concerns that might sort it out. He's always responded positively. Strangely there are obsolete academy Twitter accounts out there.

Re: Curzon 31.08

I left home thinking we might get thrashed but we didn't and I was pleased with the effort. We might have some shortcomings but I thought we played okay and if we can pass balls for Kevin to run onto and get everyone fit who knows where we will be. So good to be watching live footie and to see frien...

Re: Curzon 31.08

I'm not sure paying £2.60 on top of Darlington home ticket price of £14 will put me off. It's half a pint in a lot of places these days but it does seem a bit steep. There's also 100 tickets available at reception until 2.30. It's the way of the world these days, loads of prices seem to have been ra...

Re: Players on trial

Not sure how much players are paid at our level but I suppose if Danny was paid by the game and was scoring for fun we might get 80 extra fans on the gate. Maybe worth a punt then.

Re: Club fine

I can't see anything about this anywhere so maybe the decisions not been made. If its upheld maybe we can all chuck a few quid in. At least it's not £3.5 million-we'd definitely be in trouble then!!

Re: 25 years next week since Wembley 1996

Where does the time go?! You're right, a great day out, five of us in a car from Merseyside, shirts, caps, scarves, foam Darlington hands and the lads aged 10/11 all face painted. We even had rosettes made by a grandma. People at the services asking who we were! We had a terrible pitch level view an...

Re: 6 players leave

I think Vic 's right. We had the worst seats at Wembley, benches at pitch eye level and of course we lost. I've still never found out who the groups of "lads" were lined up in the way out, looked a proper firm!

Re: 6 players leave

I seem to remember us being dire one season up to Christmas then going on a run from Chester onwards ending up in a play-off final or is my memory playing happy tricks? If we'd taken the first part of that season to decide where we'd end up I'd have said fighting relegation. You never know really an...

Re: 6 players leave

As always there are varying opinions about the way information is shared. I'm not particularly bothered whether it's a statement or a drip feed of who's left/staying/deciding/arriving. One plus for me is shorter contracts as some players have been a let down in the past. On the negative side that al...
