Because of England’s possible involvement in the World Cup semi final on Wednesday, Darlington and Sunderland have agreed to switch the friendly from Wednesday night to the night before, Tuesday (10th July), kick off 7.30pm at Blackwell Meadows. Sunderland will be sending their full first team squad, which includes all of their new signings.
Tickets for the game are on sale in Quaker Retail until Friday evening, and also on line here: https://www.tickettailor.com/events/dfcsg
We’d like to thank Sunderland and the Rugby Club for their understanding and co-operation.
(And it’s not very often that a former Darlo player, albeit on loan at the time, reaches the World Cup quarter finals. Congratulations to Jordan Pickford!)
This will be our second pre season friendly, as we are playing Motherwell on Sunday afternoon, kick off 3pm at Blackwell Meadows.
