Darlington have confirmed their legal battle with former manager David Hodgson has ended after reaching a "mutual" conclusion.

Hodgson left the Quakers in October following an alleged breach of Football League rules concerning payments to agents and the Gateshead-born former Middlesbrough and Sunderland striker had been fighting an appeal.

A club statement said: "Darlington FC and David Hodgson have reached a mutual and legally-binding agreement following Mr Hodgson's departure from the club in September 2006.

"The financial details of the settlement will remain private and confidential but represent the estimated costs to both sides of a lengthy legal battle.

"The club has restated its thanks to Mr Hodgson for his years of service and wish him well in his future career, adding: "As part of the agreement no further statements will be made to the media on this matter by either party."
