Membership Subscriptions Renewal 2017/18

It’s that time of year again when we ask current members to renew their membership to the Darlington FC Supporters Group.

First of all we would like to thank all of our members for their valued support over the previous season and we invite you to renew your membership using our online facility:

Membership fees provide valuable funds for us to work with the Football Club Board and help develop the Club. This year we purchased additional share equity which has increased our shareholding in the club. This has provided the Club with vital cash contributions to help fund the move to Blackwell Meadows.

Subscriptions for the new season are due for payment on 1 September 2017 except for those members who took out the £25 membership since the 1st May 2017, as this special offer membership extends until the end of August 2018.

The reason we have notified members so far in advance of the renewal date is because we now have in excess of 1,000 members and producing so many membership cards is a significant task for our volunteer. By members starting the renewal process earlier, it spreads the burden of producing membership cards. Whether you choose to renew early or wait until nearer the due date, your renewed membership will run to 31 August 2018.

Subscriptions for full adult membership are £20 and £5 for anyone u16. There is a variety of means available to pay your subscriptions to suit your convenience - cheque, cash, and our secure online direct debit facility.

Once you have selected to pay, you will be given the option of a £20 ‘one-off’ payment or a monthly direct debit of £1.67. The system notifies us when a member has renewed, therefore there is no need to complete a paper renewal form. Our preference would be for members to pay by monthly direct debit because it is more efficient for everyone. If you opt for monthly direct debit the first payment will automatically be made on 1 September.

If you prefer the more traditional methods of payment, please complete the attached renewal form and return it to us with payment by cheque or cash. You can submit your form by:

• hand at Quaker Retail at the Dolphin Centre (open Monday to Friday 10am – 1pm);

• hand at the ‘Fans Table’ in the main bar at Blackwell Meadows at the matches against Gainsborough, Alfreton, or Telford;

• post to ‘Darlington FC Supporters Group, Blackwell Meadows, Grange Road, Darlington DL1 5NR (no cash please).

For anyone renewing before 31 July, we expect that your membership card will be available for collection from the ‘Fans Table’ at one of the home matches in August.

The benefits of being a full member of the DFCSG include:

· Maintaining your membership of the majority shareholder of Darlington Football Club – effectively making you a joint owner of the Club;

· Enabling you to stand for election to the DFCSG Board and to vote for your preferred Board candidates at the AGM;

· Receiving priority tickets for all-ticket games similar to those of season ticket holders;

· A number of discount offers including the excellent 25% off advance fares for Virgin Trains East Coast travelling from and to Darlington station – a full list of offers can be found on our website at the following link:

Yours sincerely,

Wayne Raper

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
County Durham

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.
