Darlo don't want to go up, the manager does, the players do, the fans do but the committee don't, regardless of what is being said I've been told by a player that the club can't afford to go up and they've made sure it can't happen and MG is furious as are the players. Gutted for everyone involved.


It's not a case of not "wanting" to go up, it's just that clearly we are not ready off the field. Some fans can see that, not just the board.

Every season is crucial towards building the "off the field" up. Hopefully we can raise the money to get the ground up to standard for next season - if we can't then we're still not ready or able are we? The management and players must accept this reality.

Good luck with that :roll: why not spend the money on a new 250 seater stand? Instead of wasting it on an appeal that's going to fail

Does anyone know when the appeal will be heard? It was lodged with the FA on Wednesday 20th April according to http://darlingtonfootballclub.co.uk/32541-2/

All 4 teams have failed in their appeal, which is entirely unexpected.

According to Poole the recommendation is that the rule be reconsidered going forward. So at least the FA recognise it's a stupid rule :roll:

On to next season and trying to raise the funds to meet the rule.

I didn't think your appeal would succeed because no in the past has managed to overturn it. Bit of a shame you have had a good season. Looks like we may end up playing the Salford circus :roll: , rather have played a fellow ex league club.
