Darlington have whittled down their managerial candidates to a seven-man shortlist and interviews begin today.

They have been without a boss since Martin Gray resigned at the beginning of last week, and Quakers have received 40 applications for the post of first-team manager.

Seven managers will be interviewed across today and tomorrow, running into the weekend if required, with chief executive David Johnston speaking to candidates along with club director John Tempest and Joanne Cameron, who is vice-chair of the Darlington FC Supporters Group.

“We’ve got a very strong shortlist,” said Johnston. “It includes people with Football League, National League and local league experience.

“We’re looking forward to the process.

“We’ve got people who have operated at different levels. We’re looking for someone who understands what it is to manage Darlington Football Club.

“We’re very keen that they understand there’s budget requirements to work within, it’s a fan-owned club, we want to ensure that the people we bring to the table are of the right behavioural characteristics and have a good track record.”
