Anyone who knows our creative director John Dunne knows he has a long affiliation with his hometown football club Darlington FC, in the north east of England. This being most recently through the highs and lows of non-league football. John’s daughter, Niamh also travels home regularly from university for 3pm on a Saturday afternoon.

And that’s why we jumped at the chance to show our support of the club by sponsoring the Under 9s Girls team for the 2019-20 season, playing in the RFYL All Girls League Division 1.

John says: “It’s great to see such enthusiasm and passion at grass-roots. The north east is renowned for producing world-class female footballers who are an absolute inspiration to young girls. Our next-generation Lionessess for the England squad could be right here.”

At time of print we’ve won every game and are top of the league. Keep up the good work, team-DFC Girls!
