Steve wins Manager of the Month award

Reward for the Great Escape

We are delighted to announce that our manager, Steve Watson, has won the league's Manager of the Month award for April.

Under Steve and assistant Terry Mitchell, we won three and drew one of our matches in April, which completed our Great Escape from relegation.

When Steve and Terry took over at the start of 2024, we were second bottom of the table and eight points from safety, but we had a fantastic run of twelve wins and a draw from 22 matches to lift us to a final position of 16th, six points above the relegation zone. It was a remarkable great escape from relegation and a great team effort.

Everybody at Darlington would like to congratulate Steve on his award, and hope that this is the first of many more.
