....a sell-out with over 1,000 tickets already snapped up.
With three weeks to go before the curtain-raiser, more than half of the tickets have been sold for the game at the 2,000-capacity Heritage Park.
There will be no segregation at the August 18th fixture, which is a home game for Bishops, but so far 993 tickets have been sold at Quakers' club shop in the Darlington indoor market and 300 at Heritage Park.
News of the ticket sales comes as Darlington's promising pre-season continued thanks hat-tricks from two different strikers ensured an emphatic 6-1 win over Glasshoughton Welfare on Saturday.
Three goals apiece from Shaun Reay and Steven Johnson either side of half-time in West Yorkshire secured win number four of the summer.
Johnson has been on trial, but the former West Auckland Town man is making it difficult for manager Martin Gray not to offer him a chance with his home-town club.
