Darlington aim to sign defender
Darlington are closing in on bringing a defender back to the club who played for Quakers during their Football League days.
After conceding four goals during a defeat at Farsley last Saturday, Martin Gray is keen to plug the gap created by Gary Brown's ankle injury.
And the manager is confident of signing an experienced centre-back in time to make his debut in Darlington's next league fixture on September 7 at Clitheroe.
The player, who Gray does not want to identity until he signs, is to join on loan initially and is expected to play some part in this evening's friendly at Durham City against Consett (7.30pm ko).
Gray arranged the game as Quakers have no match this weekend due to not being involved in the FA Cup.
Gray will also use this evening's match against Northern League opposition to give run-outs to Craig Turns, Craig Gott, Kerry Hedley and Paul Robinson, who have not featured prominently in the four league matches so far.
