DARLINGTON’s Boost the Budget campaign has reached it’s half it’s target as fans and local businesses continue to pledge their cash for the new season.

At the time of writing, the budget stands at £60,000 just over 50% of the way to their £120,000 target.

In previous seasons, the Boost the Budget campaign has been a success allowing the club to facilitate deals for players to move to the National League North club.

The Quakers have already tied down David Wheater, Tommy Taylor, Jake Lawlor, Ben Hedley and Adriano Moke for next season while Danny Rose has agreed terms to join the club permanently.

However, the boost the budget campaign would be geared towards adding more players as manager Alun Armstrong aims to build a squad capable of achieving promotion from the sixth tier of English football.

Armstrong said: “The fans have been absolutely fantastic with the Boost the Budget while I’ve been here, their generosity never ceases to amaze me.”

The Boost the Budget campaign has 12 days left with the beginning of June earmarked for the time for Armstrong to continue building his squad.

Meanwhile, Darlington's raid of Whitby Town continues after completing the signing of defender Jassem Sukar earlier today.
