Darlington have tonight agreed to sign Mark Bell from West Auckland.

The goalkeeper will make his Quakers debut in Saturday's game at Durham City and replaces Jack Norton who has been released.

Bell was West's first-choice keeper and played against Quakers when Martin Gray's side lost 2-1 at Darlington Road last month.

The keeper also played in the FA Vase final at Wemley last season, as did Terry Galbraith, for Dunston UTS, who Quakers signed a fortnight ago.

Norton began the season as Darlington's first-choice keeper before briefly losing his place to Craig Turns.

However, Turns suffering a shoulder injury two weeks ago meant Norton was handed a reprieve, playing in Saturday's match at Newton Aycliffe.
