Popular fan passes away
The club is very sad to learn about the death of lifelong fan Dave Thompson.
Dave was one of the fundraisers who did so much to keep the club afloat in the 70s, 80s and 90s. As well as supporting the various fundraisers and backing the club in many ways, he also organised several fund raising events himself, especially for the Evening Despatch appeal in 1982.
Our condolences go to Dave’s family. His funeral is on Thursday at 10.45 am at Darlington Crematorium.
