Darlington Fans Are Backing Their Club In An Incredible Way

Darlington fans have been digging deep just weeks after the end of the season as they set about helping fund next year’s assault.

Every summer, the club launches a Boost the Budget campaign, giving their manager that little bit more to spend when it comes to bringing in the right players.

Last summer the supporters raised an incredible £162,000 to help the club in the market.

They’re doing it again this year, and the National League North Quakers have already announced more than £82,000 has been pledged with a target of £175,000 in place.

Fans couldn’t be more confident with Steve Watson now is charge, the former Newcastle United defender saving their season with the club looked destined for the drop.

The organisers said: “Since its inception seven years ago, Boost the Budget investors have contributed over £800,000 to the club's playing budget; a staggering contribution, and the very definition of ‘fan ownership’.

“As always, we know that making a financial commitment to the club may not be possible at the level which you have invested previously. It is important we look after ourselves and our families first and foremost.

“However, if you are fortunate enough to be able to invest for the coming season, it will make a significant and material difference to the playing budget and the targets we hope to secure.”
