The Board of Directors of Darlington Football Club is delighted to announce an exciting and innovative partnership with Geonet Solutions, who will work to build a brand new, fully responsive website for the football club.
Geonet met with club officials in December last year to discuss DFC’s website needs, as it plans for an exciting period in the Club’s history to bring football back to Darlington. Geonet will offer a creative solution to provide the club with a contemporary, mobile-friendly website with a full, easy-to-use Content Management System (CMS) to allow for straightforward, internal website management.
The development of a new and interactive website will strongly support the Club’s vision and strategic plans, including progression through the leagues in a controlled and viable manner and the development of the Blackwell Meadows facilities for the benefit of the Club whilst embedding the commercial growth potential from a having a new home in Darlington.
Darlington Football Club is also committed to developing football performance with a focus on youth and reconnecting effectively with our local fan base and strengthening relationships within our local community. The new website will pull together these various strands so that users will be able to access relevant and accurate information going forward.
Dave Mills, DFC’s Club Development Director, is looking forward to the launch of the Club’s new website in several weeks’ time and said, “The Board would like to place on record its thanks and gratitude to the volunteers who created the current website and have tirelessly helped us with its administration and constant updating. However, this project with Geonet Solutions will allow the Club to enhance the growing positive reputation of the DFC brand and make the Club more accessible to supporters and keep them better informed. It will become a ‘one-stop-shop’ to access everything Darlington Football Club related”.
Mike Overfield, Managing Director of Geonet Solutions added, “We’re hugely proud to be helping an iconic club like Darlington to grow their web and digital presence. Geonet Solutions have always been a huge believer in helping drive local growth in and around Darlington, and to be able to help launch a new digital era for The Quakers is a great privilege.”
The new website will also support full E-Commerce integration, over and above the facility already in use for Quaker Retail and Dave added, “E-Commerce allows an alternative location and medium to enable the Club to fully engage with the local business community and enhance our online services and products. It will revolutionise the way the football club operates commercially”.
