These signings have probably been in the pipeline for a few days/over a week, before the news of the funding broke.

We are, and rightly so, continuing to prepare and plan as normal, unless the rug is pulled beneath us from the DCMS. Then the club will obviously review its options.

Re: Season at risk of finishing early

I am slightly confused if it is highly likely the season will stop why is DJ sanctioning AA to take additional players on loan and additional costs, either he believes grants will be changed to loans or more worryingly it will be voted by NL to continue playing against wishes of NLN and NLS teams? N...

Re: Blackwell Meadows Signage

As others have said, any sign (no pun intended) that the relationship between the RC and the FC is improving can only be good news. Prosperous sporting teams in Darlington can only be a good thing in terms of financial income, community engagement and public health. I'm sure the infrastructure comm...

Re: Farsley coverage

One problem is the discovery of Sousa, yes the lad can be brilliant at times but it causes problems with having a formation that we know works with the players we had already. We need 3 in the middle and drop one of either Sousa, Rivers or Campbell. Soussa and Rivers are both dribblers into the box...

Perhaps with the advent of the vaccine, we could go back the Arena & all get tested or jabbed as a pre-condition of entry. At least it will be easy to keep the jabs in the correct freezing storage conditions!

Agree with the above. In no way is anyone saying Armstrong isn’t the right man and that he hasn’t done well, but we can still question some recent decisions.
