Any additional funds will go towards improving facilities for all of the club's 26 teams.


Throughout the club’s 70 year history, Darlington Mowden Park has grown to be one of the largest community rugby clubs in the North East. Despite facing a number of challenges and setbacks, DMP continues to be a thriving community club with a total of 26 teams from minis & juniors through to the club’s senior, vets,  1st XV and DMP Durham Sharks sides. As a club we continue to embrace our “Mowden Family” ethos in promoting rugby for all.

Unfortunately the club has been hit hard by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to restrict our club’s income in many ways. The current regulations have meant we are unable to welcome supporters back to the Arena, which has seen us lose out on valuable ticketing and hospitality revenue. Our conferencing, functions and events operations have also been hugely affected.

This dramatic loss of revenue has had numerous implications for the club, and we’ve had to rely heavily on the government’s furlough scheme as well as make very difficult decisions around a restructure of our staff and players alike. We have been hugely grateful for the support of those members who have renewed their subscriptions early, and likewise to sponsors who have extended their support of the club. Along with the backing of our Minis & Juniors sections, their support has been vital in helping us through a hugely testing summer.

However, with the latest guidance placing further pressure on our revenue streams, we are now approaching all our supporters, members, players, coaches, staff, volunteers and the wider local community for support. We ask for your support in our #YourClub campaign to raise funds for the good of the whole club, from 1st XV through to minis & juniors and the club’s Community Scheme.

Your support will help us get through this difficult time and remain a prominent community club in the North East. The #YourClub scheme will help the club meet costs across the board, from medical provision through to maintenance of our training pitches and members CrossBar.

Where Will The Money Raised Be Spent?

 

Your support will help the club in the following areas:

  • Providing appropriate support and facilities for our players to continue training safely
  • Maintaining all of our pitches throughout the winter months.
  • Supporting the loss of match-day and arena income due to COVID-19, providing support to all areas of DMPRFC while we tackle the current crises
  • Improving floodlighting on training pitches and warm up areas to keep all of our players safe.
  • Maintaining our changing rooms and toilet facilities.
  • Improving and maintaining our members CrossBar.
  • Implementing measures to safely return to rugby from COVID-19 for all club players, coaches, staff, volunteers, members and supporters.
