And just like that, January is drawing to a close! With this in mind, our National Leagues sides have plenty going on across the next month so let’s see what some of the clubs have planned.
It is set to be a great Saturday at the Northern Echo Arena this weekend. Darlington Mowden Park are hosting a double-header which will see their National One clash with Birmingham Moseley be preceded by DMP Sharks’ game against Firwood Waterloo. Both fixtures will be dedicated to former Scotland international Doddie Weir and the club are raising money and awareness for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.
Weir was diagnosed with Motor Neurone disease in 2017 and 50 per cent of all this weekend’s tickets will be donated to Doddie’s charity as he continues to raise funds.
🎫 50% of ticket sales go to @MNDoddie5
