Darlington Fixture Clashes Resolved

Evo-Stik League Division One North club Darlington's fixture clashes with Ebac Northern League Division One landlords Bishop Auckland have now been resolved.

Last week, the 2013/14 Evo-Stik League fixtures were released, and nine of the Quakers' home fixtures at Heritage Park clashed with Bishop Auckland's Ebac Northern League fixtures.

These clashes have now been resolved, however, after Darlington's fixtures were given a higher priority due to them being in a higher division.

It is likely that Darlington will still face a rearranged fixture on September 14 though, when it is known who is knocked out of the early rounds of the FA Cup. This will be done to ease potential fixture congestion later in the season.

A club statement explained: "Quakers did attempt to re-arrange their fixtures' clashes without affecting Bishop's however the League dictated whose fixtures took priority.

"Darlington would like to place on record their thanks for Bishop Auckland's understanding."
