Darlo fans come in all shapes and sizes. The fans are the real heart and soul of any football club - forget about those armchair supporters of “big” clubs who swan around town in their latest designer beer belly covers, here is a list of the main groups of real fans, people who will stick with the club through thick and thin, people who suffer everything which comes with being a Darlo fan, who will sit for two hours in the pouring rain with frozen fingers and toes, and go to work the next day with no voices after shouting themselves hoarse.

These people ARE Darlington Football Club:
The Darlington Supporters’ Trust is made up of willing volunteers and fund-raisers.
The Trust is one of the many Supporters Trusts which have been set up and is committed to increasing supporter representation and share-owning at football clubs.
Darlo Uncovered is the main focal point for online fans of the Quakers, providing up-to-date news and information and lively banter.
The Darlington FC Supporters Club was established in 1987 and is a voluntary group of fans who support Darlington F.C and provide a quality transport facility to all away games. The Supporters Club raise funds throughout the season to provide sponsorship in the form of players and matches.
Membership of the Supporters Club is available at £5 per person (senior member) and £1.50 (junior members).
DAFTS - Darlington Away Far Travelling Supporters - are a social group of exiles and long distance fans who travel to away matches.
The group can put fans in touch with each other to help share travelling costs, or just help provide a focus for meeting before a game.
