FORMER Darlington striker Chris Senior is to play in the club’s Non-League Challenge friendly game in July.

Senior scored the dramatic late winner in the 2011 FA Trophy final at Wembley, a moment that means he retains a place in the heart of all Quakers supporters.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” said Senior, who is now first team masseur at Sheffield Wednesday. “My eyes lit up when I realised who else will be on the field.

“It will be great to see the Darlo fans again as well. It’s also a chance for my son to see me play football in the flesh!”

The game will be played on Sunday, July 29 at Blackwell Meadows and will see Darlington play against a team of former Premier League players.

It is part of the club’s reward for winning the Marathonbet #NonLeagueChallenge, which was a competition to find the best goal celebration in non-league football.

Tickets are on sale now, price £10 for adults, £5 for concessions and children over the age of 5, under 5s are free and are available at Quaker Retail in the Dolphin Centre from Thursday morning, or on line via this link:
