Fans group eyes Darlington takeover


Darlington fans have launched a campaign to take community ownership of the troubled Blue Square Bet Premier side.

Darlington Supporters United are appealing for financial pledges on their website as they seek £250,000 in order to take the club out of administration and gain majority ownership.

The group, who are receiving advice from Supporters Direct, issued a statement which said: "We are a community controlled organisation and the plan is to take at least majority control of the football club to ensure it is run for the benefit of its fans and the wider community of our town."
