Spartan Alun Is Darlo's Pick To Turn Their Fortunes

Alun Armstrong has this morning been announced as Darlington's new manager.

The former Blyth Spartans boss takes over from Tommy Wright who announced he would be leaving last month.

Armstrong twice played for the Quakers and has since becoming a manager, he took his previous club into this season's play-offs.

But he admits the size of the challenge at Blackwell Meadows was too big to turn down.

"There's a big job to be done, and I'm really looking forward to the challenge," he told the club's website.

"I have no doubt that it will be a challenging job, but I believe that we can bring success to the club. I'm looking forward to working with everybody.

"The fans, and the ambitions of [Chief Executive] David Johnston, are big factors in my coming to the club. I want to try and get the club as high as I can."
