DFCSG run coaches to all away games across the season. These luxury coaches are supplied by Atkinson’s Coaches and are equipped with toilets and drinks facilities. The coaches leave from Park Place, Darlington and arrive at their destination around 90 minutes before kick-off.
The away travel fares are banded - a maximum fare of £28 (£31 for non-members) will apply for the longest journeys, although trips within the North East and Yorkshire will be cheaper.
Owners (ie, DFCSG Members) will receive a discount of £3 on production of their YOURCLUB membership via their mobile phone on the coach. Under 16s (as at 1st Sept) will be able to travel for half the standard fare (rounded up to the nearest £) and they will receive a further discount if they are also Owners. Under 16s must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Should the match be postponed after the coach has left Darlington you will be entitled to a 50% refund.
Our friends over at DAFTS (Darlington Away Far Travelling Supporters) also publish some excellent Away Travel Guides which can be found on their website.

Conditions of Travel on DFCSG Away Coaches
Whilst we pride ourselves on the exemplary behaviour of those that regularly travel on the DFCSG coaches to away matches, in light of the incident at Scarborough on Monday 2nd January 2023, we need to inform all potential travellers on our coaches that:
The above standards of behaviour are consistent with the Club’s Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Policy, which can be viewed here.
Although the Government lifted all enforceable Covid restrictions on 1st April 2022, they released new guidance aimed at all those who had either tested positive for COVID-19 or were experiencing symptoms of any a respiratory infection including COVID-19.
The guidance advises those with symptoms to try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people, especially those at higher risk of becoming seriously unwell, until they no longer have symptoms or feel unwell. The guidance also advises that additional measures are taken when leaving the home including wearing a face covering and avoiding crowded places. Those that test positive are advised to follow this guidance for five days from the day they took their test.
In view of the Government’s current advice, the DFCSG Board has agreed some reasonable and practicable measures designed to create a safe environment for fans to travel to travel to away matches in support of our football club. These measures will be kept under review in response to any updated Government advice.
We are one Club and we are requesting everyone’s patience and understanding to comply with the following requirements in order for us all to look after each other during the journey:
Symptoms that indicate an individual should self-isolate prior to a positive test result are:
Other symptoms if experienced with a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or loss of sense of smell or taste:
