What was the score? We won 3:2

Most Memorable away match:Walsall FA cup, last season

What was the score? 2:2

Favourite all time manager(s) It must be Dave Hodgson pre 2012, but overall, for the achievements, enjoyment and way of playing, it has to be Martin Gray

Favourite all time players(s): Craig Liddle pre 2012, Terry Galbraith post 2012

Favourite current player(s):Joe Wheatley

Favourite Darlington ground: Has to be Feethams
