Re: Squad numbers

I have never understood the Science (or Maths) behind squad numbers. It all makes sense until after Rivers. Why do we have a number 77 and number 44 etc?

Re: Holmes out for the season

Sad to read that he's out for another season. Made me wonder about personal injury insurance the club might have in place for contracted players. The last set of accounts to year ended 30/06/19 only showed insurance amount of £1,500 which is far too small for any personal injury cover. So I wondered...

Re: Robbie Dale

One of the best players to never turn professional, got to admire him for not having his head turned and staying loyal to Blyth for so long. Seems like he was happy enough to just play Part-Time football and work at his Mam's pub :clap: Who cares he doesn't play for us he's never played for us. Thi...

Is the game being streamed live, and is it being shown un in the clubhouse?


It takes a special kind of genius to come up with this -.

Re: RESIGNATION OF DRFC CHAIRMAN

That is all I was referring to. It is of course entirely his decision to make but it...

Re: RESIGNATION OF DRFC CHAIRMAN

Never been a fan of Mr Wilkinson but you cannot deny he made a good deal for DRFC when he negotiated the deal with us. He did his job and got an agreement that seems heavily loaded in their favour as he knew we were desperate. Hope his replacement is someone we can get on with. The timing is intere...

Does anyone know if DJ or DFCSG have actually spoken with Mowden at all? With the new owner/investor Ged Quinn they may well have different ideas.
Do you honestly think DJ would have gone to the national press with this without speaking to Mowden.

Also from the League's perspective it makes little sense in allowing us to move to a bigger venue thus increasing crowds when the con...

Apparently the arena is to be demolished to make way for housing and will replaced with a 7,000 capacity stadium for DMP.

Word of warning you do have to pay to park at Birch services. I left my car there for 8 hours before lockdown I think it cost me £12.
