Hopefully David Stockdale's donation will raise the publicity further. He is a fairly regular tweeter (and gets mentioned often) on Adrian Durham's TalkSport show at drive time

I've just come over from there. Heard about the difficulties at your team which is terrible. Made the most of us feel terrible about complaining about our manager so much when we were lucky to have the financial backing we do.

Unfortunately I can't donate too much at this time but if things are still going on after the weekend I'll look to donate further.

Best of look for the weekend and the future. Never want to see a team go out of business.

Finally got my accounts in order and chucked £15 in. It's not much against the total but it's what I can do for now.

As and when Scott can do it, basically. It's probably WAY past £3.5k by now and might even have reached £4k.

In 24 hours.

Where are you lot when the server bill comes in? ;)

Is it possible for the team to play at another local ground for home games till the end of season, the RA or the Rugby Club?

Sorry about first post!

And congratulations with the money raised so far, tremendous effort!

No the club can't, because those grounds are not BSP graded.

That post of yours has probably lead to far more being put in the pot. If you make yourself known at Barrow, I'll be one of those in the queue to buy you a pint.

Has there been any response from the club/manager/players about the magnificent efforts of your fans to raise money in these last couple of days??

Thats great. :D It's good that the players appreciate the fans, and that no matter what happens, however long they live that playing for Darlington should be more just a job for every single one of them from now on, if it wasn't already.

is there a list of the players' twitter accounts anywhere? it would be interesting to see their tweets towards the fans as this is somewhat of a unique situation you guys have created here.

@james_tippy10 is the most recent one but look at his followers and most of the other players are there too.
Alun's promise to the fans: “I’ll make sure I’ll bring players in that are value for money and I want players that want to play for Darlington Football Club, want to progress and move up the league and show the fans that passion.”
