Darlington chairman in spat with former owner

Darlington chairman Raj Singh has hit back at former Quakers owner George Houghton over comments he made in the local press. Houghton issued a statement to the Northern Echo, advising the League Two strugglers on how things should be run at the club.

But Singh told the club's official website: "It's extremely disappointing to read an article in our local paper, who seem to take the word of a man who went very close to putting this club out of business.

"I'm reluctant to get into a slagging match here, but I will say I have my own way of doing business and Mr Houghton has his.

"If Mr Houghton had the club at heart as he claims to, he would have done a deal with me a lot earlier and we would have had more time to prepare at the start of the season rather than chasing our tails.

"It's also very disappointing that our local paper and sponsor of our stadium should run such a critical story without giving us the right of reply."
