    DIRECTIONS FROM THE SOUTH,

    From A1M exit at junction 57, A66 (M) take slip road left towards Darlington & Airport.

    At the roundabout end of motorway, take first exit A66

    There is limited car parking at the ground, it is recommended to use the town centre car parks, a 10 to 15 minute walk from the ground


    DIRECTIONS FROM THE NORTH

    From A1M junction 59, take the A167 towards the town centre, and when you reach the town centre in 5 miles, take the A167 to Northallerton along Grange Road. The ground is on your left after South Park.

    There is limited car parking at the ground, it is recommended to use the town centre car parks, a 10 to 15 minute walk from the ground.

    By Train
    [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    Darlington Railway Station is located one and a half miles away from Blackwell Meadows. Either grab a taxi from the station, or embark on the 30 minute walk to the ground. As you come out of the main railway entrance, you will see Hogans Bar on one corner. Keeping the bar on your left and proceed straight along Victoria Road. Go straight across at the next roundabout continuing along Victoria Road. At the next larger roundabout take the first exit by Sainsburys onto the A167 (Grange Road) towards Northallerton. Follow this road for around one mile. After passing a park on your left you will reach the ground entrance further down on the same side.

    Please note proof of concession rate entitlement may be requested on entry.

    Car Parking £5

    Match day car parking is limited & available on a first come first served basis in car park B. There will also be 20 Blue Badge spaces available.
    If you continue past the stadium entrance towards Darlington, then if you turn right at the next mini roundabout then there is street parking available alongside the park. It is then around a ten minute walk to Blackwell Meadows.

    Upon the end of the game on any given match day, priority of exit will be given to all foot traffic. This usually takes between 10 to 15 minutes following the final whistle. Ten minutes before the end of the game we would ask all fans parked in the main car park adjacent to the Club House not to move cars at all. This is to prevent potential interaction with any fans leaving on foot early from the game.

    In general when there is no segregation at any game, foot traffic will exit from both ends of the ground at the same time. On the occasions where segregation is required then departure times for all may take a little longer.

    When all foot traffic is clear of all parking areas and the exit road then cars will be released. We will endeavour to do this in an even and fair way.

    It will assist a speedier exit for all, if traffic only turns left from the exit on to Grange Road then uses the roundabout to change direction if necessary.

    Site clearance following a game is maximum 35-40 minutes.

    We thank all fans for their patience and understanding.

    Programme £2.50

    Wonder what sort of a team we will have. Two more players injured last Saturday and we only had 4 subs. Think we could be down to 12 or 13 players.

    Curry has gone back to Boro', but never really got much of a look in. We have signed Mulhearn on loan from Guiseley, could be an interesting signing. Apparently he was highly thought of at Leeds, but it didn't work out, went to Huddersfield, and then Guiseley. He could have a point to prove, in danger of slipping down the leagues. Lets hope Beck is ready for next week.

    Getting to Round Two of this would be an achievement based on our previous terrible record in this prestigious competition!

    So that means we now have eight players out injured.
    Fallowfield, Parker, Emmett, Ainge, Knowles, Swain, Kerry, Beck !!!!!

    Thought we did well considering we had 3 loan signings all taking some part in the game. Well done to the c/half who came on for Kennedy and scored a good header. Welcome back Swain who played the full 90 mins.
    Lots of our players seemed to be slipping on the pitch. Were they wearing the wrong studs?
    Hope we get a home draw now we've got over this tricky game. Next game FCUnited away think we could start to have players coming back to 1st team squad.

    Although the playing surface last night looked a lot better than it did there last season, it did seem unusual to see so many players slipping over!
    Shocked
    To be fair it affected players on both sides!
    There was a frost forming on the grass behind the goal during the 1st half, so whether or not that might have contributed!
    scratch
    Vitally important we have player’s entering the field of play with the correct footwear on for the playing conditions!
    Especially with our injury list!!!!!!
    Crying or Very sad
    Think the conditions changed after the start of the game, so with no “pit stop” until half-time to change your tyres, there wouldn’t have been a lot you could have done!

    Well done to the lads and management with the win on Friday night in the Baltic conditions. Good bunch of supporters up there who as always made there voices heard. Was well impressed with Lachlan Barr when he came on for Terry (hope hes ok as a massive player to the team, any news on him). Also a mention for the returning Swain, who played really well. Welcome back Luie Smile. Onwards to Tuesday and a vital game which would be brilliant if we couldget 3 points and keep on the heels of Salford, fingers crossed. Then our trip over the Pennines for our much anticipated game v FC Manchester. Decent ground and loyal fans, hopefully with a win on Tuesday we could take a good following which our "never say die" team deserve. Hope to see us back them on both occasions, and with news, we will be getting some of our long term injured players back, everything looking good for an assault on the Leauge Championship. Onward and upwards.
