Darlington v FCUM. Weds Sept 13th 7.45pm

Post by Nick Duckett »

Grange Road, Darlington, DL1 5NR

This from Darlington publicity officer
It's about a 20 minute walk from the town centre where there are plenty of bars and food outlets - unfortunately there isn't too much around the immediate vicinity of the ground.
There is a hotel directly across the road which has a bar however it's not the biggest and can be quite expensive. Other than that you're looking for Grange Road which is a 20 minute walk down to the ground
At this point it looks extremely unlikely that the game will be segregated. Our chief security officer has contacted your club to find out how many will be travelling. Unless we expect there to be more than a couple of hundred the clubhouse bar will be open to all visitors

Darlington 1883 were formed in June 2012 after the original club ceased to exist after 129 years of history. They played in the
Football League between 1921 and 1989 and 1990-2010.
In the 1999-2000 season the Quakers became the first team to lose an FA Cup tie and qualify for the next round. With Manchester
United having withdrawn, Darlington were drawn out as a ‘lucky loser’ and lost their 3rd tie 1-2 to Aston Villa at Villa Park.
The Quakers won the 2011 FA Trophy Final at Wembley, beating Mansfield Town 1-0 watched by 24,668.
Manager Martin Gray was in the Sunderland side beaten 0-2 by Liverpool at Wembley in the 1992 FA Cup Final.
Goalkeeper Ed Wilczynski made 3 appearances for FCUM in the 2013-14 season conceding one goal.
Darlington have gone 7 games without a win. FCUM have lost their last 3.
