DFC Supporters Group:
Supporters Group Invests in Media Team

The Board of Directors are pleased to announce that DFCSG will be backing our fantastic media volunteers to the tune of £1,500 this summer. The funding was allocated at a board meeting earlier this week, with all in attendance agreeing that it would be money well spent.

DFCSG Chair, Chris Stockdale, commented, “The media team do an exceptional job producing outstanding content, bringing our supporters from far & wide closer to the action. They are at the forefront of promoting our fantastic club and I’m very pleased that the Supporters Group is in a position to help fund their ongoing requirements.”

The majority of the cash will go towards new equipment for Kevin Luff, enabling him to maintain the high standards he has set for the official YouTube channel in recent years. Under Kev’s stewardship, the channel has amassed an astonishing 1.5 million views, making it one of the club’s greatest assets. He’s also captured some of the most iconic moments in Darlo’s 135 year history along the way.

“Most of the cash will be going towards a new laptop”, explained Kev. “This will allow me to work during away trips and bring things like post-match reaction and other content quickly after the full time whistle, and I’m really grateful to the Supporters Group for the money to buy it. Being able to work on video content while travelling up and down the country helps make good use of my time.”

The remaining cash will go towards new equipment for Darlo Fans Radio, which has itself amassed an incredible 194,000 listens on Mixlr. Andrew Simpson, Stuart Armstrong, Michael Cansfield & Michael Price provide an invaluable service, travelling the length and breadth of the country to brave the elements and bring the action live to those of us who can’t be there in person. This season also saw the launch of a popular podcast.

Commentator and podcast host, Stuart Armstrong, has also offered to cover the DFR running costs for the upcoming season using his recent Darlo Fans Lottery win.

Speaking about his generous contribution and the incoming funding, Stuart said “All of us at DFR are grateful for the support we get and excited already for next season. I was lucky enough to win the monthly DFCSG lottery last month and am very happy to have donated some of that unexpected windfall to fund our podcast and commentary subscriptions for the next 12 months.

We are always on the lookout for improved equipment, but at the very least we now know we are set up to bring you all the action and discussion through what looks like being a fantastic season.”

The DFCSG Board intend to fund the equipment purchases using money from the DFCSG accounts. However, it is recognised that many supporters feel a deep sense of gratitude towards the media team and may wish to also make a personal contribution. Any such donations would added to total enabling further investment in media equipment & resources.

You can make any donation via our PayPal account or BACS transfer.

Darlo – Newcastle U23’s a few thoughts

  After a night back at the Arena there were many positives to takes despite defeat to Newcastle’s youngsters. Like last year it was a weird experience being back at the white elephant, but still, all considered I think we had a good turnout. As a whole, we looked effective going forward and were unlucky […]

Meet the opposition - Halifax Town

Halifax Town BadgeHalifax Town are no strangers to the Quakers, regardless of whether they reformed and we didn’t we call know that a club is it’s fans so it is perhaps fitting that our very first game back in the town is against the Shaymen.

There are a number of links between the two sides, not the least of which is that their former Manager Neil Aspin starred for the Quakers during the time of our promotion challenge where we fell at the final hurdle against Peterborough on a dreadful night in North London.
