11:46pm Monday 11th June 2012 in Sport
THE Quakers’ appeal over which league the club will play in next season will be heard by the FA next week, it has been confirmed.
Community company Darlington FC 1883 has asked the FA to reconsider its decision to treat the club as a new entity and place it in the Northern League.
DFC 1883 chairman Denis Pinnegar and director Laura Drew will travel to Wembley for the appeal, which will start at 10.30am on Thursday, June 21.
Ms Drew said: “We have to be confident when we go down as we put forward a strong appeal, but we are taking nothing for granted. We will be well prepared and hope to come back with a positive and fair result.”
