York City add trip to Darlington on 2024/25 pre-season schedule

York City will face Darlington at Blackwell Meadows this pre-season on Tuesday, July 23rd (7.30pm kick off).

It’s a seventh confirmed pre-season fixture for Adam Hinshelwood and his squad.

City have four home ties and three on the road.

Darlington finished 16th in last season’s 2023/24 Vanarama National League North campaign.

Their survival didn’t come without a challenge as former City manager Steve Watson guided the side to escape relegation.

Appointed on December 31st, 2023, Watson picked up 12 wins between January and April after Darlington had only won four in 24.

City last travelled to Darlo in 2021. A Clayton Donaldson scored a brace in the 2-1 victory.
