He’s always had it in for Darlington fans, calling us “paranoid” during our spell in the Northern League. He made it pretty clear he didn’t want us in the division.
All he was ever interested in during his Northern League tenure was turning it into a nice, chummy, back-slapping old boy’s club, where he and a select group of his mates got a grand day out to Wembley each year.
If Tubbs and Edward from the League of Gentlemen were football administrators, they’d be like Mike Amos. Wanting to keep everything “local” and making sure no one ever leaves. Substitute Royston Vasey for the Northern League and you get the picture.
Since Amos toddled off, the Northern League has rejoined the real world with clubs actively wanting to be promoted.
Open now for discussion of all things Darlo!

I did not know he and GR were chums too. But fair play, through this he has further cemented his place in the Elite Cockwomble tier.
