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.
