Re: Spennymoor Away

They are all over social media desperately trying to smear us with the fact that there was plenty of space down that far end, with photos 'proving' their point. They're saying that Darlo fans deliberately overcrowded that area. The fact that MyOpinion debunks this will not matter a jot to them. And...

Re: Spennymoor Away

My fear is due to yesterday next time we play them there. Play offs? you never know that they will now give us only 500 tickets. The problem wasnt lack of ticketing but simply not giving us a proper section. We should have been given most of the south terrace behind the goal with a gap stewarded bet...

Re: FA Trophy

I can see St Ives away then! with a defeat no prize money and us actually making a loss what with the coach trip down and hardly any attendence to share the gate money.

Re: blackwell meadows work !!

My view is quite simple, forget BM it is never going to work in the short term or the long term i.e. it will never be ready for ages and then when/if it is will be very basic and will not allow us to move up the leagues.The land does not allow us to build an infrastructure big enough to support a c...

Re: blackwell meadows work !!

I'll be wrong when we actually play a game at Blackwell! lets not get carried away. My preferred option is that the club and Mowden and the council should be working together to make something out of the arena for a long term future. I can assure you I'm not seeking 'victim' status.

Re: blackwell meadows work !!

If people think we will ever be playing at Blackwell Meadows it's not going to happen. The club have been trying to get a short term lease at the arena and also looking to try and get a long term lease at the arena as well if the Blackwell plans were to fall apart in the next few weeks

Re: Gate prices going up next season

No problem with the prices going up. I would expect we would need to pay higher wages, travel costs, etc to compete in a higher league. Look at the admission prices for other teams Worcester City £13, Telford £14, Guisely £15 so I'd say £12 for us if more than fair. Plus think of the savings Darlo b...

I see Mowden Park are struggling on the field now and there is never a mention in the Echo about the crowds at the Arena any more. Previously they used to be always printing "in front of a crowd of 1,000" or "900" or "700". It's now gone very quiet on that front so I suspect that has fallen off con...
