Put £10 in through a mates paypal a/c about 6:00 pm last night. Wish it could have been more. Can't make Barrow, as it would have cost me 2 x B&B as well as £95 train fare (and that's with an old punters rail card). Give a chorus of "you are my Darlo" for me lads.

Cheers

JJ

PS Darlo are 2-1 with Corals for the win tomorrow. If you can afford it have a tenner on & put the £20 winnings in the pot on Monday. :roll:

Darlo priced at 11/4 at William Hill. Have put a tenner on and I will donate all my winnings if we win.
Bearing in mind that we will have the equivalent of 13 players with the Darlo support there - it's a good bet.

Actually, even if we lose/draw - I don't care about a lost tenner - I'm losing my club.

Whilst we were listening to Raj Singh on BBC Tees last night, Craig Liddle was on Radio Five Live's drive programme to thank the fans for their support and to talk about the whip round we'd had. Just posting because I bet everyone else was listening to Raj!

Great to get this exposure, I only know because a mate of mine from the Isle of White text to tell me he'd heard it.

Can't bear to listen. I'm in the public library & don't want to bubble all over their keyboard. :roll:

Just read this thread for the first time, very humbling some of the comments. In the end we raised £8000 for the players. It goes to show how powerful footie is and with support like this we'll never die.
