Darlington director John Tempest said; “This really is a fantastic offer from our main sponsors, Virgin Trains, and the club would strongly encourage all our supporters to take advantage of it. There are some great savings to be made for journeys on its east coast route and everywhere else on the Virgin Trains network, the bookings don’t have to be for travel to football matches alone!

“I have been working with several people from Virgin Trains on this idea for several months, and I have been impressed by their input and professionalism throughout. I fervently hope that the relationship between the club and Virgin Trains remains strong and lasts for several years.”

Claire Ansley, General Manager for Virgin Trains on its east coast route, said: “We’re delighted to work with Darlington Football Club as its main sponsor and to offer its fans this fantastic discount. Virgin Trains is proud to support customers and communities on its route, and Darlington remains a very important part of this railway, with direct links to many destinations, including both of the UK’s capital cities.

“We’re now more than half way through a £21m refurbishment of our trains to improve their comfort and reliability – and we hope that many Quakers fans will enjoy travelling in style with Virgin Trains whether on match days or during the rest of the week.”
