DFCSG Away Travel News

DFCSG will be running coaches to all away matches. These luxury coaches are supplied by Atkinson’s Coaches and are equipped with toilets and drinks facilities. The coaches leave from Park Place, Darlington and arrive at their destination around 90 minutes before kick-off. You will also be given a 50% refund if subsequently the match is postponed after the coach has left Darlington.

This season DFCSG members will have priority booking until 48 hours before departure, at which point bookings will be opened to non-members.

As in previous seasons the fares will be banded. A ‘standard’ fare of £22 will apply for most journeys, although trips within the North East and Yorkshire will be cheaper.

DFCSG members will receive a 10% discount (rounded to the nearest £) on production of their membership card on the coach. Juniors (u16 on 01/09/18) will be able to travel for half the ‘standard’ fare and they will receive a further discount if they are junior members of DFCSG. Junior members must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Our first away trip of the season will be to Spennymoor Town on Tuesday 7th August leaving at 6pm. The adult fare will be £10 for DFCSG members and £11 for non-members. Junior members will be charged £6 and junior non-members £7.

On Saturday 11th August, it will be an early start of 9.30am for the long trip to Brackley. The adult fare will be £20 for DFCSG members and £22 for non-members. Junior members will be charged £10 and junior non-members £11.

To book a seat ring Glen on 07376 368553.

The DFCSG - strengthening the roots of our club

The DFCSG created and manage the B2D fund, which is funding available to help establish the Club back in Darlington. The fund acts as the primary collection pot for monies raised from direct donations and events organised by the DFCSG Fundraising Group.

Of course, there are many ways in which you can help the club directly but, if you’re specifically looking for a quick and easy way to support the establishment of a solid foundation for the Club in its new home, then it only takes a few minutes to set up a one-off or regular donation to the B2D Fund either by your online or high street banking service.

For monthly standing orders or a one off donation please send monies to the following account:

“Darlington FC Supporters Group”
Lloyds Bank
Sort code: 30-84-43
Account No: 30283268

To pay by cheque please make cheque payable to
“Darlington FC Supporters Group” and send to

Darlington FC Supporters Group
c/o Blackwell Meadows
Grange Road
Darlington
County Durham
DL1 5NR

Please quote your name in the reference area when using internet banking and, on the back of your cheque, include your name and address.

Remember there are many ways to help the Club… can you think of any more? Please tell us about it either by email or in person at the Fans Table in the bar at all home games.

  • Buying a Season Ticket helps to provide the Manager with additional funding needed to strengthen the team at the start of each new season
  • Attending matches provides the club with a constant stream of money throughout the season, from additional match-day ticket sales and revenues from catering and other sales (e.g. programme sales, match-day raffle tickets, 50:50 match-day draw, Club merchandise).
  • The Come On Darlo Prediction League is a fun way to add a little bit of an edge to your season - use your skill and judgement to predict how we and the other local clubs will do in the coming season, and who will be the big winners and losers nationally, come the end of the season.
  • The Sponsor a Goal scheme is a fan-run initiative which has raised over £8000 for the Club since it began in season 2012-13.
  • For as little as £5/month the DFC Fans Lottery Draw provides you with the chance to win either £50 in each weekly draw, or even more in the monthly Super Draw. The Lottery has raised more than £10,000 for the Club over the past 12 months.
  • The Fundraising Group runs a series of entertainment fundraising events over the year, the proceeds of which go into the B2D fund.
The Darlington FC Supporters Group (DFCSG) was established on April 10th 2015 with the merger of the CIC, Supporters Club and Supporters Trust. Darlington FC Supporters Group holds approximately 62% of the equity of Darlington Football Club and is therefore the major shareholder as well as being the Corporate Director of Darlington Football Club 1883 Ltd.
