Darlo up as champions

Have your say

DARLINGTON 1883 clinched promotion as Ebac Northern League Division One champions after winning for the 39th time in 45 games yesterday, 3-1 against Team Northumbria in front of a 1,986 crowd at Heritage Park.

Martin Gray’s men fell behind, but Chris Emms soon levelled and a late double from ex-Durham City forward Amar Purewal sealed the championship.

Second-top Spennymoor Town maintained their impressive season with a 3-2 win over Durham City as they build up for next week’s FA Vase final against Tunbridge Wells at Wembley.
