MANAGER'S NOTES

November 19, 2018

For Pathway success and the long term plan of stability & sustainability we have to define short term success also. We also must understand the limitations and then be realistic about where we are, how far we have come and ask are we on the right path? The easiest way to analyse that is based on our game performances and ask are the players progressing? The answer to that is 1million Percent yes.

No one hates losing more than m...

Dear Dunstable

I woke early this morning after another incredible week, we’ve reached match day. I decided to go for a walk to think about today’s game and walked up the downs. Locals know what I mean by that. Blows Downs is a great feature of our town that acts like a huge border. I reached the highest point where you can view the whole of Dunstable and Houghton Regis and I stood desperately thinking.

This is no village.

Over to...

December 2, 2017

In recent games we have had to deal with a depleted squad through injury and availability and that is on top of the usual key challenges we have to face. So being faced with opposition in good form and sitting well in the table should have meant this would be a daunting task. But fear is something we don’t have now and knowing Hitchin, can benefit from sending match scouts to our games it proved they indeed take the task serio...

With Tiverton sitting in 6th place in the league we knew today would be tough but that will never change our approach and the energy and enthusiasm we put into football matches as we have improved game by game. With Ryan Young’ suspension and Gedeon Okito’s injury we had to reshuffle things a bit and then Saul Williams pulled up in the warm up and forced us into a change before kick off. Despite all the injuries we showed the...

November 24, 2017

It’s been a bad week again for Dunstable as we went to Gosport who we have shared difficult times with. The week we go they are able to benefit from the transfer embargo being lifted with outstanding obligations being met due to a reprieve from some outside help. That meant they were able to move quickly and the two players they brought in were both key to the result. None more so than the defenders involvement in Ryan Young’s...

November 18, 2017

This game was billed and documented as a 6 pointer but I was not really getting sucked into that. It’s not even Christmas. Were we highly charged and acutely aware of where we are in the league? Of course we are. But we are also highly aware of the performances we have put in against teams much higher up the table and we keep getting better and better despite ongoing bad luck and setbacks.

It was great to meet Mick Catlin and h...

October 27, 2017

We having been nursing some injuries so it may be time to rest a couple of players to aid the recovery but we certainly will be going into this 100% to win and we want to maintain the performance and energy levels we have seen in recent games.

Of course we are trying desperately to stabilise the goalkeeper situation but we have been dealt some terrible luck along the way. Casey has come in and we are really excited about him in...

October 20, 2017

After our little run of decent form we were of course hit with some terrible luck which we simply can’t cope with and don’t have the ability to dip in our pockets for a short term fix solution, so that left us on the wrong end of two heavy defeats, but with both clubs officials quoting how flattering the score lines were. 

We were acutely aware of the problem with our young goalkeeper at Stratford and then we were hit with some...

October 16, 2017

We have always shown excellent resilience and effort in many games and that’s where the performances always give you the confidence that eventually we will start to pick up some points, despite whatever circumstances we find ourselves in. So October has shown that we have indeed improved and we have learned a lot. What we don’t have in resource, we make for in a plan, guts and determination. 

A couple of players came in against...

October 6, 2017

It’s a great pleasure to welcome such a great club on this official non-league day 2017 and I hope we can serve up a really good exciting football match for both sets of supporters. 

I want to take the opportunity to thank Spencer Day and Jon Reed. These are proper football people and have been tremendous to us behind the scenes and totally understand the dynamics and challenge of building from where we started and have been ke...
