I am certain they met Darlington twice on both occassions (of each consisting of 1 Season in the 3rd Division, Richard) and by pure coincidence both seasons spanned ones endoing in 6 to 7, being 1966/67 and 1986/87)

You are probably possibly thinking, Richard of 1986/87 when Middlesbrough had no money and the baliffs knocking on the door and old Ayresome Park got closd down at the start of the Season and Hartlepoool offered them a home, which I recall well as being one of my first real memories of getting into Footy then!
