Darlington have announced The Unknown Creative as sponsors of their away shirts.

A brand agency based in Newcastle and founded by lifelong Darlington fan John Dunn, The Unknown Creative replace Nuleaf who have gone into receivership - seven months since agreeing to sponsor Quakers.

Nuleaf also sponsored Darlington’s home kit, and it is understood a previous club sponsor are poised to return to the front of the team’s shirts.

Darlington chief executive said: “We are very grateful that John and The Unknown Creative have come along at such short notice, and we are looking forward to a mutually-beneficial relationship.”

Dunn said: "We at The Unknown Creative are very grateful to Darlington Football Club for being given the opportunity to be away shirt sponsors for the rest of the season. It really is an honour and privilege to partner with such a great club."
