A NON-LEAGUE football club has extended the deadline to a fundraising scheme.

Fans and businesses now have until February 17 to invest in Darlington FC.

The extension follows a £75,000 cash windfall resulting from an appearance in the Fulham first team by former Quakers player Dan Burn.

The club is aiming to raise at least £50,000 from an investment scheme to secure its finances ahead of a move back to Darlington with a groundshare with Darlington RUFC.

The club said in a statement: “The board has reasserted that, whilst the windfall cash from Fulham has alleviated immediate cash concerns, it has not altered the targets that were set from the outset to meet contractual clauses within existing debt agreements and ensure financial stability through to the end of the season from which the return to Darlington can then be built on solid financial foundations.”

A fans' forum has been arranged for Wednesday, February 5 starting at 7pm at Blackwell Meadows. The event, which is open to all fans, will also include brief contributions from individuals and businesses who have pledged support to the cause so far.

Fans can buy shares in the club for an equity stake of £1,000 and upwards.

Local businesses can also invest sums of £2,500, £5,000 or £7,500 in return for equity and beneficial rates on commercial packages, season tickets and hospitality.

Supporters can also gain a £1 share in return for a donation of £100, £250 or £500.
