Hopes remain for Darlo rescue plan

More details could emerge today of a last ditch attempt to buy Darlington Football Club.

Yesterday, a meeting of the club's creditors was cancelled after the community group bidding to buy the Quakers confirmed they were unable to pay its debts.

The move has cast further doubt over the future of the club, with liquidation now the likeliest outcome.

If an agreement between Darlington 1883 and the administrator is reached, Interim boss Craig Liddle says they must leave the Darlington Arena no matter what:

"They're looking at moving out of the Arena, which has been a huge drain on finances in the past. Possibly ground sharing."

He added: "It's the supporters who have been through an enormous amount in the last few months.

"They've raised funds, they've followed the team through probably one of the darkest periods in their history, and they deserve better than this.

"So it's important we try and rescue the club for their sakes."
