Last Saturday we saw the team perform magnificently at Heritage Park beating North Shields 2-0. The team put together a performance we knew they were capable and for once the task of choosing the man of the match (sponsored by Darlington Building Society) was not an easy one with at least three players being in contention but it was a popular choice of Chris Winn (pictured) who as well as scoring both goals worked tirelessly throughout the game.
Manager Colin Myers said this week “Saturday was a great win for us. Not just the picking up of three much needed points but the manner in which we achieved that result was very pleasing. It was the first time this season where we have had all the new signings available for one reason or another and I think the performance showed the potential of the current side”
“Every game from now until the end of the season is a cup final for us especially Saturday’s game against ‘Synners’. This game, in my opinion, has always been vital but now even more so after last weeks’ win against North Shields. The Shields game for me was the minimum benchmark for our performances from now until the end of the season and we must all work hard to push us further up the table”.
“I must say again that the fans were fantastic on Saturday and they really did make a difference. We need them more than have ever needed them this Saturday and I hope they will be at HP in numbers and very loud!”
The Club arranged an MRI scan on Andrew Johnson’s ankle which has unfortunately shown he will not play again this season.
The Colin Rowell Suite is open before the game for alcoholic and soft drinks and after the match the Grand National will be shown on the large screen.
