  • "Local Business Invests in Quakers

    The club’s fundraising initiative aims to draw on the support of all supporters of the football club and of the local business community. It is with great delight that we are proud to announce that a County Durham based Industrial Roofing contractor has joined the ranks of the growing business contingent prepared to back the Quakers.

    Alderclad Ltd. based in Seaham, through one of their owners Anthony Nevison, has pledged a sum of money to the football club to help ensure its financial stability and to invest in the return to its home town. When Mr Nevison saw the monumental efforts being made by the current board of directors and fund raisers to get the club back to where it belongs in terms of geographical and league status, he said that he was only too willing to do what he could.

    Anthony said, “Anyone involved in running a business knows that for continued success you need a good end product otherwise all your hard work and enthusiasm will be wasted. The next vital ingredient is people that you know and can trust, for example staff, clients and suppliers. Once you have these in place you have a fighting chance. The enthusiasm of everyone involved in the club is plain to see and with the current community based projects, as well as the on field footballing success, the end product seems to be getting there. Without question every single person involved with the club has a desire to move forward. We in the business community have many pressures put on us and occasionally we get the pleasure of being able to give a little back. Let’s hope for the future success of the club both on and off the field we are able to call on more businesses such as Alderclad to back the Quakers.”

    Darlington Football Club is grateful to the investment made by Alderclad Ltd and we welcome all businesses to take up the challenge with us and invest in our future.

Due to work committments he is unable to stay with Quakers, but he will retain his registration with the Evo-Stik First Division club so could play for Darlington again if required.

Promotion-chasing Quakers are at Kendal Town on Saturday.
