Darlaston won the Playoff Final 2-1 on Saturday 7 May 2022 with an outstanding goal in the 96th minute, winning promotion to the Midland League Premier Division. I was at the exciting game against Stapenhill to see Darlaston go up alongside 500 other supporters.
The family of former Darlaston striker Leon Taylor were in the crowd to watch the game. The team’s performance was a fitting tribute to Leon, who passed away in November 2021.Darlaston taking their place in the Premier Division will be the first time in the club’s 184 year history that they will be playing in Step 5 of the National League system. This is extraordinary only years after the club had to close. Congratulations to everyone involved at the club on their victory.
