Some say that his heart is in upside down, and that his teeth glow in the dark...
or that he's the main cause of global warming and his stomach is reverse engineered to make the I-Phone...
all we know is, he's called Mr Q.
"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

What's happened to Mr Q?

Has he gone to York?
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"

I thought we had a Mr.Q, I'm sure I've seen him down at BM this season.

Sorry to break it to you Pete but Mr Q is actually a person in a costume - who may or may not have defected to York City. Hence the need to recruit a new person to maintain Mr Q's attendance at matches.

We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

Coincidence? I think not.

I wouldn't mind a shot at that gig...

Being Mr Q sounds right up my street, it is the kind of thing I would enjoy

Deep! But yes, we're all out in public wearing the face of the stranger.

Maybe this is a conversation for a different forum.
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.”
