Darlington have been saved from liquidation at the eleventh hour after a rescue group pledged £50,000 to ensure their survival for the next three games.

Administrator Harvey Madden told the playing staff and manager Craig Liddle that the club had folded at 12pm, only for the Darlington Football Club Rescue Group to arrive at the Northern Echo Arena with fresh funds.

Madden then staged a meeting with representatives from the Rescue Group and at 3pm it was announced the club's future would be secured until the end of January.
