Commercial Director Dave Mills added; “It is an honour to welcome back Darlington Building Society to our football club again this season and we look forward to building on our successful relationship with them, not only for this season but hopefully for the long term. Darlington Building Society is an iconic local business with a real family and community ethos which we feel is the perfect fit for the Club. As the partnership has young people and the community at its heart, it will provide both parties with the opportunity to interact with each other’s core followers to ensure the supporters also benefit from this new deal.”
