A TOWN football club is appealing to fans to help clean up its temporary new home after months of inactivity.

Due inactivity at Northern Echo Arena over the last six months, the stadium is in need of a good clean – and its sports clubs hopes fans will help.

Darlington FC and Mowden Park Rugby Union Club are asking fans to turn up and help clean up at 10am on Saturday, September 19, morning.

Social distancing will be observed, so volunteers must wait outside near the main reception before being taken in small groups to a particular block of seats to clean. Volunteers also need to bring a bucket and the club will supply cleaning materials.

Darlington FC said: "We've had a good response from fans to come and help, which is typical of them when work on this scale needs doing."
