Darlington Football Club has played at Feethams since they were founded in 1883. The club originally played in regionally organised leagues, and were one of the founding members of the Northern League in 1889. They were first admitted to the Football League when the Third Division North was formed in 1921. They won the Third Division North title in 1925, and their 15th place in the Second Division in 1926 remained their highest ever league finish. After their admission to the League, they spent most of their history in the bottom tier. They won the Third Division North Cup in 1934; their first victory in nationally-organised cup competition.
This Pieman visited Feethams on a March Saturday. The journey by train from London Kings Cross took two and a half hours. After some liquid refreshment near the Market Square it was over to the ground for the match. Unusually to access the football ground you had to walk through the cricket ground. A very entertaining match saw visitors Doncaster Rovers take a point following a 2-2 draw.
