Darlington are another team with their sites set high. Since their reformation in 2012 they have been promoted 3 times and now find themselves in the national league north for the coming season, securing their first place finish with a 7-1 finish over Whitby Town.
Darlo play at Blackwell Meadows (pictured above) after first moving from Darlington Arena where the original club played their games and then from Heritage Park in Bishop Auckland to ensure games were played back in Darlington for the coming season. Capacity is only 3000 but the club have recently spent a quarter of a million pounds helping to bring the ground up to scratch for the 2016/17 season.
