We dominated the first half, having the majority of possession and a few goals to reward our efforts. In the second half, the girls went out and finished the job off with some spectacularly well-worked goals. The girls go into there last game of the season next week hoping for another win against top of the league Hartlepool".
RFYL Girls U11 Premier Division:
Felling Magpies FC Vs. Darlington FC
Team Coach Mick Walton said; "Today saw us travel to Felling for their penultimate league match knowing if we win our last 2 games we will win the league. Darlington started slow but grew into the game with end to end play and ended up leading by a couple of goals at the break. The second half saw us up our game which resulted in us running out convincing winners".
RFYL Girls U13 Premier Division:
Darlington FC Quakers 4-2 Leam Rangers
Goalscorers: Grace Dobson (2), Amber Swales & Eva Leadbitter
POTM: Grace Dobson
Team Coach Shaun Mackenzie said; "Today, the girls picked up their first 3 points of 2022 with a well earned victory over the visitors Leam Rangers. A good game of football played in good spirits. Both teams tried to play football the right way and the first goal came for Darlington, a great worked goal which started from goalkeeper Erin and finished with Grace getting her 16th of the season. Chances went both ways and the game was 2-2 at half time. Darlington played some good football in the second half, scoring another 2 good goals and managing the game well to see out the win".

Was great to see us to out and attack a game and get a good amount of goals as that’s where we normally struggle. Three wins in three now for the year!".

Middlesbrough FC 2-2 Darlington FC Feethams
Goalscorers: Anna C & Liv C

Team Coach Adam Cameron said; "A great start to the game with Anna putting the Feethams 1-0 up inside the first 5 mins. Middlesbrough quickly hit back and it looked like we were going in to half time at 1 each but a brilliant goal scored by Liv direct from the corner made it 2-1 just before half time. The second half we looked like we would hold on and see the game out but one bit of brilliance from the opposition and suddenly it was 2-2. The game finished 2-2 with both teams unlucky not to get a winner.
