Thanks to Karl Alexander, here are the front covers of Darlington games in the 1947-48 season

 

Our away game at Lincoln was watched by a big crowd of 12,077, but we lost 2-1.

 

 

We lost 4-0 at Bradford City, in front of a big crowd of 13,586

 

We had nearly 7,000 in the ground for a 2-2 draw.

 

Some of our older generation will remember tuberculin tested milk on the front of this Hartlepool programme for our FA Cup first round tie, which we lost 1-0.

 

 

 

When we returned to league action a week later, we lost 2-1 at Rochdale
