Colin Todd - football's fire fighter


Question - what is unique about Darlington defender Ian Miller?

Answer - he was the sole Quaker to start both the final game of last season and the first one of the new campaign.

Miller and skipper Steve Foster were the only senior players that remained at Darlington over the summer following a torrid few months that started when the cash-strapped Quakers entered administration in February.

George Hougbruary.

George Houghton, the chairman when the club went into administration, pumped money into the club to ensure Darlington could complete their fixtures last season but, nonetheless, players did not receive their full pay, manager Dave Penney left for Oldham and a lot of the their non-football staff were made redundant.

Newcastle might have monopolised the crisis-club headlines but Darlington, 36 miles down the A1, have given their North East rivals an unwanted run for their money.
