    Darlington Football Club (also known as Darlo or The Quakers) is a professional association football club based in Darlington County Durham, currently 16th in the Conference League.
    The club was founded in 1883 and originally played its games at Feethams, before moving to the Darlington Arena in 2003.
    The arena is an all seater stadium with a capacity of 25,00, although this is restricted to 10,00.
    The cost of the stadium was a major factor in driving the club into administration. The club originally played in regionally-organised leagues and were one of the founding members of the Northern League in 1889.
    They were first admitted to The Football League when the Third Division North was formed in 1921.

    They won the Third Division North title in 1925, and their 15th place in the Second Division in 1926 remains their highest ever league finish.
    Since their admission to the league, they have spent most of their history in the bottom tier.
    They won the Third Division North Cup in 1934 their first victory in a nationally organised cup competition. They have reached the last 16 of the FA Cup twice, and the quarter-final of the Football League Cup once in 1968.
    In the early 1990's they won successive titles, with the Conference National in 1990 and the Fourth Division in 1991. In 2011 they won the FA Trophy, defeating Mansfield Town 1-0 at Wembley Stadium.


    The clubs main rivals are Hartlepool United. The clubs traditional colours are black and white shirts, black shorts and black and white socks. The clubs crest depicts Locomotion No.1, referencing the town railway history as well as a stylised Quaker and the clubs nickname, The Quakers, referencing the religious movement that's had a historic influence on the town.
