Winger Chris Moore has become Darlington's latest signing after arriving from Whitley Bay.

The 26-year-old trained this morning with Steve Staunton's side and will be part of the squad that travel to Northampton Town on Saturday.

He has been given squad number 9 vacated a fortnight ago by Lee Thorpe.

Newcastle-born Moore has starred in Whitley's run to the FA Vase semi-finals and by moving to Darlington he has opted out of the opportunity to play at Wembley for the second season running. He played at the national stadium last year when Bay won the Vase.

The winger's final game for Whitley was Tuesday's 3-1 win over Newcastle United reserves in the Northumberland Senior Cup semi-final.

He has signed a deal lasting until the end of next season and becomes the 23rd different player brought to the club by Staunton and the third plucked from the skilltrainingltd Northern League.

Already at The Northern Echo Arena are Nathan Mulligan and Gareth Waite who joined this season from Norton and Spennymoor respectively.

How can Staunton and Singh say anything other than they are aiming at the conference with yet another signing from so low down the ladder?
Even in the sad days of the last time we neared the drop the club kept some kind of faith with the fans and took on players of a reasonable level.
I now firmly believe that this chairman has no intent on rebuilding the club and will be happy for it just to fade away.
I have cancer,and may not have long left on this earth.Every time I have had a low point in the past the club has given me something to live and fight for.
Sitting here 2,500 miles away in front of my computer screen each time we play is now just more punishment.
I am at my lowest point with respect the club that I have been in 58 years of following the side.
Thank you mr Staunton.Thank you Mr Singh.

Singh has brought this club to its knees.Again .He is intent on getting his development plans on fast track and this footballs clubs demise is one way of ensuring that.Getting us out of football league is almost complete.The second stage of his planning is almost complete..
Singh isn't a Darlo football fan or bothered about its football heart.... Turning his back on people who wanted to contribute and help this club underlines this fact.
The current team is not the full package and not enough as been been done to get things right on the pitch.!The areas that need instant attention never get sorted! Hence our results and position rock bottom all season!.The urgent improvement needed to strengthen squad was always neglected!50+ players tried I know but most failed to impress.
Other teams in our league have shown with even lower budgets it can be done.But we have not shown that ambition!.There are lots of available players out there with experience and would do well for this club!..Singh failed last season as Vice Chairman and now this seasons the same "taking the club down"(I am talking football here)..This season isn't completely over yet but the writing is already on the wall....
