Durham & Northumberland Two / Re: Darlington Quakers RFC....

The more clubs that accommodate games other than on a Saturday afternoon the better, great Idea gives everyone who's not playing a chance to.... go shopping on a Saturday afternoon with the other half.

 

Surely this is an argument AGAINST!!!!

Muggy, Spoken like an economist, on the balance of possibility and on one hand it could be an argument AGAINST! On the other hand it could be an argument in favour!!  :D

I reffed one of their Friday evening KO's last season, brilliant idea. Both clubs fielded strong teams and it was well supported, more of the same please.

Great concept of a ground share - mutually beneficial to both teams.

Anyone who thinks it's not clearly hasn't visit DRFC - arguably the best facilities in the league?

Personally a fan of evening kick off under lights - makes for a good atmosphere.

I don't see why having a night game is a bad thing? Lads can have their morning and afternoons free with the family, get jobs/work done and then with all other clubs finished playing in the area they can have a waddle over to watch local teams play.

You can expect more people going to watch, which in general means more revenue coming in over the bar, its forward thinking in my eyes. If the away team are happy to play on the evening then don't see the issue.

Gives the local rugby community a game to watch on a Saturday night.

If a club can host an evening game then I think it should be looked at more often across the leagues. especially between local teams.

I have been to a couple of Darlingtons evening games and it does attract a crowd. Its a positive situation as far as I am concerned.

Unfortunately very few fixtures went ahead at the weekend but some good news for us locally here at Winlaton.

Two of our lads who left in the summer to try their luck at Blaydon both played on Saturday in Blaydon’s 54-12 loss at Sale. Well Done David Kilpatrick starting at tighthead and Sean Pyle coming on from The bench.
