Darlington’s managerial change this week represents a fresh start for the squad, believes striker Nathan Cartman, who has asked for the club’s fans to show their support for the team on Saturday.
This weekend’s game at Blackwell Meadows against Stockport County will be the first since Martin Gray resigned as manager on Sunday, leading to Brian Atkinson and Sean Gregan replacing him.
Reaction to Gray’s departure after a five-and-a-half-year tenure has been mixed, while some supporters have expressed disappointment at the compensation arrangement between Quakers and York for his services.
A friendly next summer will see Darlington receive all of the proceeds, however, the terms of his contract meant that the club were only entitled to a cash payment if he had moved to an EFL club.
“We need the fans to not only get behind the players, but the two managers as well,” said Cartman.
“Fans staying away if they are annoyed is the wrong approach. The players, management and backroom staff need then more than ever.
“A few good results and we’ll be near the top of the table and that’s how we’ve got to look at it.”
