Darlo fans start Save Feethams campaign

A campaign has begun to bring Darlington football club back to its old ground, Feethams. Yesterday the club said it will play at Shildon's ground next season.

Feetham's is now a wasteland but it was home to the club for more than a century before it moved to the Darlington Arena 9 years ago. Two men who were part of the Darlington FC rescue group have set up the Save Feethams Campaign to try to bring matches back to the original ground.

Darlington FC to use Shildon ground

The Darlington fans group DFC 1883, which last week rescued Darlington football club, has signed a ground sharing agreement with neighbouring Shildon.

Darlington will use Shildon as its home ground for the next season on a one year lease. The rent will be £25,000 which the group says will include all costs. It had also been looking at Bishop Auckland, but a spokesman says it was felt Shildon would be a better option for the majority of fans.
