Darlington's friendly at Whitley Bay on Tuesday evening has been postponed due to a lack of available players.
Quakers announced this afternoon that the game "has been postponed with the full cooperation and understanding of the officials at Whitley Bay".
A statement read: "A combination of recent injuries and the current availability of players over the holiday period before the league campaign kicks off on August 17 at home to Warrington have led to this decision.
"Plans to honour this friendly at some time in the near future will be agreed for dates which are convenient to both clubs. Full details will be announced once finalised."
During Saturday's game at Gateshead, Darlington lost Gary Brown to injury and a week previously Paul Robinson, who joined from Whitley Bay, suffered a hamstring injury.
Their next game is at Durham City on Friday (7.30pm).
Meanwhile, Darlington's under 18s play at Richmond Town tomorrow evening (7pm).
