The Gazette understands that Davey has decided to quit Darlington for League Two side Hereford, and will be announced as the Bulls new manager as soon as formalities are concluded.

The club was earlier today in the dark over the situation, but while they have yet to make a formal statement, it is understood that there have been further developments, and Darlington have learned that Davey will be leaving.

Gazette putting forward Lenie Lawrence as the new man - already!!

Pretty much.

If it wasn't only football I'd feel like crying.

Am gutted and worried about the implications.

I see the Gazette are also now throwing names in the ring as a replacement.

I had great hopes for Davey, he ticked all of the boxes and said the right stuff.

How the fook is a new manager supposed to get signings together at such short notice? Jesus this is a nightmare and we'll start the season playing catch up again.

The last paragraph from the updated Gazette article:

"Former Boro boss Lennie Lawrence, who has left his most recent role as Director of Football at Bristol Rovers could be interested in the job, especially if he can work with a young up and coming coach."

Lawrence & Liddle - that would more than do me. Might even be a better option than Davey. Worked v.well at Bristol Rovers with Lawrence & Paul Trollope.

The key is a quick appointment, shouldn't be difficult as Raj has already been through the process twice in the last 8 months!

Guess the alarm bells should have started ringing when the O'Neill Thompson link went quiet without any comment from anyone. Its clearly been shelved by Davey as he knew he wasnt going to be here. I'd expect him to rock up at Hereford along with Davey next week.

I cannot believe this. I just cannot believe this.

What the fuck is wrong with our club? Have we built the Arena on an ancient Indian burial ground or something?

Tommy i think may still end up here - he was coming more for the club rather than the manager as far as i could see - same for Chandler.

I think a signing like Werling was so out of the left field it only had to be because of Davey. I expect he'll turn up at Hereford.

And as for Tommy Wright, I bet he's wondering what the fook he's done.

As am I, after buying season tickets.

If Hereford need a left back of course. Pointless signing him if they already has cover in that position.

Davey is an utter cvnt for joining Hereford and we are better off without him. Someone who will jump ship at the first sniff of a job somewhere else isn't what we need at Darlo.

If on the other hand he budget has been cut, Raj has imposed restrictions on who he can sign, etc, etc then its fair enough.
Totally agree, if Davey has simply fancied the Hereford job above ours and Raj has not moved the goalposts, the guy is a disgrace.Hope the prat takes Hereford down.

Just the same throughout football, contracts aint worth the paper there wrote anymore, if it turns out that Davey has gone then he's an utter c**t

Well I hope you are pretty firm on it because we don't need further unsubstantiated rumours flying around at the moment.

Several people have said similar "underground".

Tommy Wright turned down Hereford to come here.

Whether the budget has been cut or not, Davey is a cvnt for jumping ship like this. Hereford may be closer to home but he's a football manager for god's sake. Barnsley wasn't exactly close to Wales either. He had been unemployed for months before we gave him a job and this is how he repays us.

Having said that, when Davey goes we will be looking for our FOURTH full-time manager in less than a year under Singh. I still believe if he had just given Colin Todd a decent budget in the first place, we wouldn't be in this mess and if it does turn out that the budget has been cut or whatever, any benefit of the doubt from me towards Singh will quickly evaporate.

This comes to light JUST AFTER the early bird ticket offer (which was extended to include this weekend) finished.
Question. Does Mr Singh know what he's doing ??
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

this smells nastily like another upcoming pile of 'A'

I really hope i'm wrong but there MUST be a reason Davey has jumped ship? Surely he's not that much of a kahunt?

God I hope i'm wrong (along with everyone else who dared to utter the dreaded word!)

Can someone paste the whole article onto here, I can't get on the Gazette website from work, Internet Explorer encounters an unexpected problem and has to close.
This is the only website I've come across that does this consistently.
"At a meeting held at the Grammar School on Friday last - Mr Phillip Wood M.A., in the chair - it was resolved to form an Association Football Club for Darlington and neighbourhood. The opinions of those present were so unanimous as to the desirability of this step, that a committee was formed to complete the organisation of the club, and Mr Craven, 17, Garden Street, was appointed secretary pro tem." - The Northern Echo, Monday 23rd July 1883

I hope not, but you never know. What if Raj has had to use the season ticket sales to offset other bills and not use it on players wages/fees etc as he promissed SD - therefore leaving SD with no money to offer new signings. Not wanting to spend the next season wallowing at the unfashionable end of the BSP SD opted to apply for and accept the hereford job.
COME ON DARLO!
