MARIO DORNER: The 29-year-old Austrian striker has delighted fans worldwide with his sublime goalscoring touch. His colourful career has taken him from Wustef in his home country, to Motherwell, where he made just two appearances, before his 1997 move to Darlington. With the invaluable experience of five Austria Under-21 caps Dorner, a huge success at the Third Division club, was the fans' player of the year last season as he fired 10 goals during the Quakers' promotion push. This season, possibly overawed by big-name players like Marco Gabbiadini, he has struggled to find his form, and has been busy keeping the bench warm. But with those talents it is surely only a matter of time before he is again entertaining the Feethams faithful.
