Crisis deepens for Quakers

Published Add your comment

Darlington have confirmed that all of their players apart from Josh Gray are available on free transfers.

The club are on the brink of closure after failing to find a new owner following their entry into administration in February, with administrators making virtually their entire playing staff available in a bid to cut costs and keep the club afloat for as long as possible.

Gray, 17, has been made exempt from the cull due to his age, while coaches Neil Maddison and Craig Liddle have been retained to look after the football side of the club following the departure of caretaker-manager Martin Gray and his backroom staff.

A club statement read: "Following the end of the playing season and the expiry of the player deferral agreements and considering the reduced levels of income in the close season, the administrator has unfortunately been forced to allow the majority of the first team to leave with immediate effect.

"This decision has been made to enable the club to trade as long as possible in order to allow any potential buyer as much time as possible in order to make an offer for the club."
