The league table doesn't lie.
Darlington have played eight and won seven.
Very good going by any standards and get the points on the table.
Interestingly they've only played two teams currently in the top seven - Bishops and Guisborough.
The other teams they've played and beaten occupy five of the six bottom positions in the league table.
I know you have to beat what's in front of you and Darlington have played a role in taking points from these teams, but there will be some very competitive matches to come.
Its going to be a very interesting season.
To be honest, no disrespect to the teams we've played so far, but really the fixture list couldn't have been kinder to us for our opening 8 matches. It's given us a good start and confidence going forward. That said, we look so dangerous going forward, which will stand us in good stead even against the best clubs.
Darlington in the Northern League - Everyone, please remain calm. We are trying to solve this problem as quickly as possible. Please be patient.
