30th August 1975- Division Four, Darlington 1 Watford 0

In subsequent years this game would be remembered as the day we hit rock bottom. The 1-0 defeat left us 92nd in the Football League with no points and no goals from our first three games. As promotions, cup runs and a European campaign followed in the next decade ‘Darlington away’ would be quoted as a reference to show how far we’d come.
