In addition, David Steel’s co-option to the Board will end at the AGM. One vacancy at the 2019 AGM was not filled.
The constitution of DFCSG makes provision for a board of up to twelve directors and therefore there are vacancies for up to six additional board members to be elected at the AGM.

- Ordinary and a special resolutions to allow DFC to allot shares to DFCSG in return for their donations, together with any individuals who have loaned money to DFC and have subsequently agreed to exchange their debt for equity.
At the DFCSG AGM, the DFCSG Directors will be seeking a mandate from members to allow the representative of DFCSG to vote in favour of the above resolutions at Darlington Football Club’s AGM.
Conduct of the AGM
