Number of years you’ve supported Darlington: 45. I know I don't look old enough ;)

First match seen: I'm told it was a home defeat to Huddersfield Town in 1976, I was only 6 months old

What was the score? 0-3

Most memorable home match: 1991 home win against Rochdale, securing back to back championships

What was the score? 2-0

Most Memorable away match: Rarely have a bad away day and I find it impossible to pick just one match, so in no particular order here are my top 3 :

FA Trophy final at Wembley.

Welling away, winning the GMVC .

Not so much for the actual match but our venture into Europe and the long weekend in Eindhoven was something else !


What was the score? 1-0 win, 1-0 win and can't really remember but I think it was 4-2 defeat (I'd had a few)

Favourite all time manager(s) Brian Little and David Hodgson

Favourite all time players(s): Alan Walsh, Marco Gabbiadini and Jimmy Willis

Favourite current player(s): Will Hatfield

Favourite Darlington ground: Goes without saying, but  Feethams

What are your hopes for this season? There are no stand out teams this season and we've got a big squad so has to be playoffs. You've got to be optimistic :)
