Porter's Contract Hopes

FORMER Sunderland 'keeper Chris Porter has been released by Darlington and is expected to report for pre-season training with the Mariners in the hope of being offered a new contract at Blundell Park for the start of next season.

"My agent has got to work straight away and got the ball rolling so I went down to Grimsby last week. I'll be training with them again and hopefully they'll be able to get a better look at me in pre-season." said Porter.

The Middlesbrough-born shot stopper, who has had spells at Southend, Hartlepool and Sunderland, in addition to Feethams, was surprised to be released by the Quakers after nine appearances for them last season in Division Three. "It did come as a shock but these kind of things happen in football - all I can do is pick myself up and get on with things." said the 23-year-old 'keeper.
