Saturday 8th January 2021


RFYL Girls U16 Premier Division:

Hartlepool FC 3-5 Darlington FC

Goalscorers: Nicole G (2), Olivia B, Liv L & Leah H

POTM: Nicole G

Team Coach Scott Buckton said; "Excellent first game back after the Christmas break! Unbelievable second Half! We haven't see a better half from both teams all season!".


RFYL Boys U7 Red Division:

South Shields FC Vs. Darlington FC

Goalscorers: Jace (2)

Team Coach Gav Britton said; "Good first half against a strong South Shileds team coming in 3-2 down but an early goal in the second half turned the game and South Shield ran out deserving winners".


RFYL Boys U9 Premier Division:

Foundation of Light FC Vs. Darlington FC

Goalscorers: Finley Childs (2)

Team Coach Sam Pascoe said; "In extremely cold and rainy weather conditions the boys dominated the game but lacked a cutting edge in front of goal. Despite this, the boys were in cruise control winning the game 2-0 before letting in a sloppy goal with 5 minutes to go. The boys held out and continued their winning run in the league to make it 15 wins from 15 games".


JPL U12 Quarter Final:

Darlington FC Academy 4-0 South Shields

Goalscorers: Luca (3) & Tom

POTM: George Theakston

Team Coach Richie Allen said; "What a result from the boys to progress though to the semi final, one game away from a final at St George’s Park. Against a team who beat us 3-1 at the start of the season, the boys put a shift in a worked there socks off and we had the upper hand throughout in what was a very tough game".


U14 Boys Friendly:

Leyburn U15s FC 1-3 Darlington U14s FC Academy

Goalscorers: Alex Carter (2) & Jesse Nelson

POTM: Jesse Nelson

Team Coach Michael Eggleston said; "Fantastic performance against a good side who are a year older than us. That’s 3 wins in a row now and things are looking much brighter".

TJFA U9 Red Division:
Darlington FC Vs. Hartlepool FC
Goalscorers: Jude Nicholson (3), Finley Childs & Isaac Tonge
Team Coach Lee Childs said; "A great footballing performance from the team. From the first whistle we were on it and didn’t give Hartlepool a moment to settle. The football we played in and out possession was excellent resulting in some well worked goals today. Charlie Reay made a great save from a softly awarded penalty. Another win for this talented group of boys and still yet to lose a game this season".

TJFA U16 League Cup: 
Darlington FC 2-1 Richmond Town FC
Goalscorers: Owen Bailes & Harvey Carrick
Team Coach Grant Cuthbertson said; "Good performance from everyone today in what was poor conditions. Today saw us play against a higher division team in the League Cup. We dominated from the start and new signing Owen Bailes got his first goal for Darlington. We should of put the ball in the back of the net more in the first half but for a fantastic display from the Richmond Town keeper making it remain 1-0. Harvey Carrick came on as a substitute and not long after made it 2-0. The visitors pulled one back and not long after we gave a penalty away and Liam Mason pulled off a brilliant save to keep it at 2-1".
