FOOTBALL fans were given another reason to get behind Darlington FC yesterday as a new ticket outlet was opened up.

The Dolphin Centre, in the Market Place, will be selling tickets for the Quakers' final two home league games of the season.

Supporters can snap up adult tickets for a cut-price £12 for the matches at the Williamson Motors Stadium against Rushden and Diamonds this Saturday, and Cheltenham Town on May 7.

The move follows a link-up announced earlier this year between the club and the publishers of The Northern Echo.

Match tickets are also available from The Northern Echo offices, in Priestgate, as well as several other retail outlets in Darlington and the villages. Quakers star Neil Maddison visited the centre yesterday to launch the initiative.

Tickets are on sale at the reception from Monday to Friday, 6.30am to 11pm, and Saturday and Sunday, from 8am to 10pm.
