WE CAN confirm that at 6.30pm this evening, Tommy Wright, contacted Chairman, Lee Thorn, who is currently on a long-awaited family holiday in Spain, to inform him that he was resigning from his position as manager.
This has come as a major surprise to everyone at the football club, particularly as he committed his future to the club earlier this week. Tommy met with representatives of Darlington FC, without the knowledge of the Chairman, and they have agreed to pay his notice period and necessary compensation package.
As a result, Dino Maamria has agreed to come in and assist Jon Ashton for tomorrow’s Vanarama National League North encounter with Stockport County here at the LDJ Solicitors Stadium.
We now need your support more than ever on Saturday, so please turn up in good numbers to really get behind Jon, Dino and the players.
