Re: Potential new local derbies

The quality of teams in the Northern League is fast being eroded. Imagine if in 2012 we had been placed into a league which had not included Spennymoor South Shields Dunston Marske Hebburn and Shildon. We would have had it won by Christmas. Out of them teams there was only really Spenny who were a ...

Anyone know what happened to the Coppinger and Robinson money? We’re they sold when Peaden was the owner? If so I can guess where the money went 😁

Re: Mission Impossible - Mission Accomplished!

“At its peak Mission Impossible was selling between 800 and 1,000 copies on average gates of 2,500, which was a phenomenal take-up rate…” For those of a certain age, Mission Impossible was as integral to 90s-era Darlo as Feethams, Hodgy and Dugald McCarrison’s loan spell.

Re: Favourite ever Darlo video clip/highlight & why

Call me a pedant ("ok, you're a pedant") but with a topic title like that I thought we might actually see some clips. But anyway, mine is easy. Northampton v Darlo at the County Ground on a beautiful spring day in April 1991. Chosen because it's the greatest goal I’ve ever seen Darlo score, and prob...

Yes we did. Awful performance that day. Although this is a new Hornchurch as the team we played back then went under. Awful ground as well . Running track around the ground that day gave a very bad viewing experience. Although the performance from Darlo was not worth watching Lost 2-0 in Nov 2003. ...

Basically the best of Spennymoor is Uncle Brad and his cash and ambition. The best of Darlington is the passion and commitment of the ...

Well, when I last posted I was hoping things weren't far off being back to normality, how wrong I was. Still, Bury have made a strong start in the tenth tier and sit top of the league.
