FRESH from reaching the FA Trophy quarter-finals, Darlington are scheduled to face York City tomorrow - but Alun Armstrong has suggested it will not be played.

His club last week chose to vote null and void in the poll that National League officials are conducting to decide if the campaign should continue.

Quakers explained: “We believe that funding for the rest of the season should be in the form of grants and not loans.”

York are among the National League North clubs who wish to continue.

On Saturday, Quakers earned £6,000 in prize money by progressing in the Trophy by beating Wealdstone 4-1.

Focus is due to return to the league tomorrow at Blackwell Meadows, but Armstrong said: “How can it go ahead with the state the league is in at this moment in time?

“My point of view is that the league should have suspended for another week or two until the vote is sorted, rather than putting the onus on clubs to do it themselves. Clubs can’t afford it at this moment in time.

“We got money from this game which helps towards running costs, simple as that, Tuesday we get nothing from it. We want to play, but I worry for other clubs in this league who can’t continue. What’s the purpose when they potentially could go under?”

Darlington, Trophy winners in 2011, will discover their quarter-final opposition today, and with the semi-final being only a one-leg affair this season it means Quakers are two games from Wembley.

Armstrong added: “What a dream that would be, that would be unbelievable. It’s going to be tough but we’re only two games away. We need some luck in the draw and at home I would fancy our chances against anyone.”

Also in the quarters are Torquay, Notts County, Woking, Aldershot/Chesterfield, Oxford City, Hereford and Hornchurch.
