  1. Old Lane Inn (now demolished) was a strange place. Went in there for a pint a few times but never seemed to be busy. Great thread by the way. If anyone wants a trip down memory lane Stephen Gee's 'Halifax Pubs' Volumes 1 and 2 are a fascinating read. Covers the town centre and all outlying areas. Each pub has a photo and info underneath.
  2. The Star (next to where Broad Street Plaza). Got demolished years ago, but had my first pint there. Has anyone mentioned The Shears (my dad used to drink in there after his 6-2 and 2-10 shifts at Crossleys). Sporting Life at Wheatley should be included if extending range outside town centre. Was Webster's flagship pub in its heyday. Always wondered where the sporting memorabilia disappeared to when it became McMillans.
  3. Champion Jack Dupree, blues pianist, used to live on Ovenden Way. Used to see his Cadillac parked outside his council house. Bizarre sight for a young lad!
  4. Total lack of urgency. Cooper has come in for a lot of stick this season but he was the only one who showed any passion today.
  5. He's been getting lots of recognition on this forum over the last couple of months. Player of the Season contender in my opinion.
  6. RIP Mr Wild. Condolences to Pete and his family.
  7. I didn't need to see the highlights. I was there.
  8. Staunton's was the standout performance today. Hardly ever misplaced a pass and always tried to keep the ball moving. Hanson had a strong first 45 minutes but didn't get forward as much second half.

    Jim Smith

    Sad news. First game I went to was the Bishop Auckland FA Cup win and Jim stood out not just because he was follically challenged but because he was as hard as nails and drove the team forward. RIP Bald Eagle.
  10. Scott Quigley scored twice for Barrow tonight making it 11 so far this season. Funny how strikers who couldn't hit a cow's arse with a banjo start scoring for fun once they leave us.
  11. Well done, Hoddie. Great site.
  12. https://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/news/local/darlington/17789981.donawa-looks-likely-offered-deal-darlington/
  13. That's a bit of an arrogant statement. Perhaps people have fully thought through what appointing NC means and are enthused by the prospect of a well respected and committed individual taking the club forward.
  14. Darlington's No.7 that Archie rightly identified as the best player on the park is Justin Danawa, a Bermudan international. Chatting to a Darlo supporter in the bar at half-time and he said that Darlo had paid for him to come over. They'd done the same for Osagi Bascombe (the No.14 with the dreads) who is also a Bermudan international.
  15. Darlo edited highlights so what do you expect. We looked comfortable enough considering the number of trialists. Both teams tried to play football and as pre-season friendlys go it was a decent game.
