The club can confirm that Alan White has left his role as coach of Spennymoor Town and joined Darlington FC as Assistant Manager.
White joined the club in the summer of 2016 after spending three years with Darlington as a player and coach.
Statement from Jason Ainsley:
“On behalf of the management I would like to thank Alan for his time with us. His commitment to our promotion success was excellent, but to join his home town club was an opportunity that he couldn’t turn down, and we didn’t want to stand in his way. Alan goes with our best wishes and we wish him every success in the future.”
Statement from CEO Bradley Groves:
“We are disappointed that we have had no contact or courtesy call from any official from Darlington. Considering the calls I have had in the past from officials to help out re-using our facilities etc., I am disappointed nobody had the professionalism I would expect.”
