Offers of beer and brass bands are among the gestures that have been gratefully accepted by the group responsible for saving Darlington from extinction.

The Blue Square Bet Premier club were on the brink of closure when the Darlington Football Club Rescue Group negotiated a deal with administrators to secure the Quakers' future for the next three games earlier this week.

The group have since been inundated with offers of support, and Rescue Group spokesman Doug Embleton said: "We just wanted to provide this window of opportunity for various other parties to get round the table and see what could be resolved for the club's longer-term future. Otherwise, the club was gone. The club was dead, but not yet buried."
