Quakers reveal new kits
THE Northern Echo is sponsoring Darlington’s strip this season and the home kit is revealed for the first time today.
New signings Darren Richardson, Gary Brown and Adam Nicholls modelled the Macron-manufactured kit which sees Quakers return to their traditional black and white hoops.
The away kit is red and also carries the name of The Northern Echo who revealed the sponsorship in June.
A support package has been agreed that includes a recommitment of a £10,000 investment pledged earlier this year during the fight to save the club.
Quakers’ Northern League campaign begins with a sellout match on Saturday against Bishop Auckland at Heritage Park.
All 2,000 tickets have been snapped up so there will be no cash sales on the day.
Meanwhile, two of Darlington’s first games of the season have been rearranged.
They will be at Consett on August 25 instead of Celtic Nation due to the latter’s involvement in the FA Cup.
Also, their home game with Dunston has been brought forward a day to Friday, August 31 (7:30pm kick off).
