Re: October 3rd

Would it not be fairer if we have to limit numbers to base it on last season’s average attendance ? I don’t know the exact figures, but let’s say Gateshead ground can hold 10000 but their average gate was 1000 and say numbers were cut to 50 percent because of Covid so they would be allowed 500, we ...

Re: Incoming goalkeeper

Of course any club has the right to recall a loanee but surely only if they want to use them. In this case they did not so the decision was poor not only for us but for the player himself. He missed out on the chance to play in the most important game of his career and test himself against full tim...

Re: North West based Darlington fans

I've rarely seen Darlington at home but get to most games over this side of the Pennines (it's a standing joke with some Darlo regulars who almost fell over when I appeared at Blackwell). In the past I've been to Yeovil, Bournemouth and Aldershot but I now I tend to just attend NW games so I'm out....

Re: Sports village

These figures are completely made up but just as a representation to illustrate 'how'. When Darlington play at home the rugby club sell 100 pints. For £2.50 of which £2.00 is costs and of the profit that is split 50:50. Therefore they make £25 profit. Before Darlington used to attend they used to s...

Re: Potential new signings

I see the Mackems have let 24 go. The majority of these are players aged under 24 so presumably haven't had much if any first team involvement. I've no idea who they are though I'm sure others will. From the number alone though you'd think there may be one or two that could perhaps do a job for us?...

I’m guessing but I’d say one third is based on a target of £100k

Playing budget

So.What do we think it’s going to be.According to the BtB pitch the total “makes up around a third”of the playing budget.That would mean somewhere between 350 and 400k .That is one hell of a pile of cash Over to you Al,fill your boots . And again,a huge well done to everyone that contributed :thumbup:

Re: Boost the budget

I thought this year we could achieve 120k even with everything going on because of the season we have had and the feel good factor around the place. I still believe we can achieve this with a late push, however looking at it with 7 days to go 110k is a more realistic figure. So far 423 have contrib...

I would keep Reid. Intelligent player with a physical presence who can play across a number of positions in the side. In fact, I don’t think the question should be asked of keeping him or Hedley. Both are good enough and will stay. In terms of Elliott, I was hammered for saying he would cost us poi...

Awesome start as to be expected. I will be increasing my pledge slightly because I believe that Alun will spend wisely on good players, as shown last season. One slight misgiving is no target has been set, why? Darlo fans love a target. Another slight concern is it comes across a bit defeatist when...

The play off semi final against the vibe of County Durham must be up there somewhere.A full house ,a goal down and a late,late winner.Must admit though,Whitby was an unbelievable night.One memory is the endless trail of head lights over the moors in the rear view mirror on the way home.

I see the target has been halved. Bit disappointing when others have managed 20k easily (eg Altrincham) and they aren't fan owned.
Maybe Alty fans aren’t also paying into a boost the budget scheme like a lot of us are.
