FA confirm date for Darlington FC appeal

Darlington FC 1883 Ltd have been told by the FA that their appeal against the FA decision to class Darlington FC as a "new club" and to place the club at level 5 of the football pyramid will be heard on the 21st June 2012.

We have to be confident when we go down as we put forward a strong appeal, but we are taking nothing for granted. We will be well prepared and hope to come back with a positive and fair result.
