Local company backs the club
A Subway sandwich restaurant in Darlington is swapping meatballs for footballs to provide Quaker fans with a benefit scheme.
After seeing the success of Darlington FC Supporters Group’s ‘Boost the Budget’ campaign, the outlet, based at DL1 Leisure Complex, previously known as Feethams - after the Club’s historic home ground – has put a discount scheme to reward members of the Supporters Group and season ticket holders.
The deal adds to the already extensive range of benefits for DFCSG members, with a 10 percent discount offered on their whole order when they produce their membership or season ticket card.
Merryn Donald, Manager at Subway DL1 Feethams, said: “We were really impressed by the way the town’s football fans have rallied around the club and wanted to contribute in some way, especially given the fact we can see the spot where the old ground used to be from the shop.
“With our new menu set to launch very soon, it seemed a perfect time to give the new-look side our backing. Our takeaway subs and wraps are perfect for away games or the walk down to Blackwell Meadows.
“If the fans want to invest in the club, we want to invest in the fans to show our appreciation for everything they do. What’s good for the team is good for the town as a whole!”
Craig Morley, Commercial Director at Darlington FC, said; “It really feels like the club is generating a lot of buzz around the town, with more and more businesses investing in, and showing their support for the team. Not to mention the outstanding contribution made by the fans once again this year.
“A big thanks to the team at Subway DL1 Feethams. I know they are really keen to be part of and support the local community and giving this great incentive to supporters and club volunteers is certainly a big step towards that.”
