Darlington supporters are invited to a presentation on the way forward for the club, when fans will hear ideas about Quakers’ future direction.
Taking place next month at the Dolphin Centre, in attendance will be directors John Tempest and David Johnston, manager Tommy Wright, and members of the Darlington FC Supporters group (DFCSG) board.
Questions to the directors will be invited, and while it has been described by Quakers as “a very important public meeting”, it is understood that no significant changes are imminent.
A statement from the supporters group, who recently elected Chris Stockdale as their new chair, read: “Our board has worked closely with and supported David Johnston and John Tempest over the past few months as they have made significant progress in ensuring Darlington FC is in a secure financial position. Now we can start to look towards the future together and define the best way to continue to move our football club forward, both on and off the pitch.
“Under supporter ownership over the past five years we have recorded some remarkable achievements; three promotions, the reclaiming of our rightful playing name, funding the redevelopment of Blackwell Meadows and the return to playing football in Darlington.
“The DFCSG board firmly believe that continued progress is possible, on and off the pitch, with the right planning and execution under supporter ownership and with strong professional leadership in the board room.”
