First home game in front of crowds since March 2020
Finally, after 497 days, we'll be playing in front of crowds again on Saturday when we host Newcastle Under 23s at Blackwell Meadows!
It's the moment everyone has been waiting for, to see the lads in action again, and to catch up with other Darlington fans.
This will be our second friendly of pre season following our game behind closed doors at Sheffield United a fortnight ago. Since then, we have postponed three games because of Covid cases and pings within the camp, but hopefully those issues have been overcome, and manager Alun Armstrong should have all his players available.
Here's some advice to fans about Saturday's game:
This will be the first opportunity for everyone to see Alun's close season signings, with the possibility of more to come:
