MATCH REPORT: TOOTING & MITCHAM V DUNSTABLE TOWN

TROPHY TRIUMPH AT TOOTING Dunstable came from behind to win this FA Trophy match in their first visit to their hosts for sixteen years. The home side began sprightly running and deserved their lead which was snatched from a cross from the right by Chace O’Neill after eighteen minutes. Three minutes later a trademark free-kick from Danny Talbot, from fully thirty yards brought the equaliser as Dunstable reasserted themselves. Tooting attacked wilfully but a remarkable goal was scored by Zack Reynolds, who broke from his own penalty area, and scampered up field and with a quick exchange pass with Andrew Phillips, the Dunstable skipper put his side ahead for the first time in the match. Dunsta

MATCH REPORT: CIRENCESTER TOWN V DUNSTABLE TOWN

UPHILL STRUGGLE IN THE COTSWOLDS Dunstable fell behind to a replica goal of the Chippenham game when a free-kick from the left was not defended and volleyed past Jack Smith after just eight minutes. The visitors recovered and were looking good for an equaliser when Gedeon Okita was given a straight red card towards the end of the first half for what was deemed a violent tackle. To add to this Alex Cathline had to go off injured, but Dunstable substitutes Jetmir Esso, Adam Moussi and Saul Williams did well Okita’s harsh dismissal changed the texture of the game and Cirencester exploited the space and numerical advantage but they did not score their second until four minutes from time. Great

SUPPORTER'S CLUB NOTES AHEAD OF CHIPPENHAM TOWN

Chippenham currently sit one place above us in third position with a game in hand and one point advantage, so today’s game is yet another crucial one. A massive thank you to all of you for answering our call to get behind the blues and get the lads back to winning ways. We know first-hand that Yella, Talbs and the lads really do appreciate your support and we urge you all to keep your support going and why not bring a friend, work colleague or loved one down to home game and show them why you keep coming back to Creasey Park. Last week our barren run came to end as the lads turned on the style in the 2nd half to beat Dorchester 2-1 despite a few jitters towards the end it really was great to

MATCH REPORT: DUNSTABLE TOWN V CHIPPENHAM TOWN

DUNSTABLE BEGUILED BY DISCIPLINED CHIPPENHAM DEFENCE With all the goals coming in the first half, this evenly contested match had exciting moments until the end. Third placed Chippenham, took the lead against fourth placed Dunstable after just five minutes. A poorly defended free –kick from wide on the left was picked out cleanly by man of the match David Pratt who converted with a close range volley. Chippenham allowed Dunstable little room to manoeuvre which resulted in a number of long balls from the hosts, which proved to be a largely ineffective tactic. The home side’s task took a further blow when David Longe-King conceded a penalty after twenty minutes which was emphatically converted

MATCH REPORT: DUNSTABLE TOWN V DORCHESTER TOWN

SONUGA AND CATHLINE SECURE THE POINTS Dunstable ended their gloomy run of four successive league defeats with an ultimately nervous victory over visitors Dorchester Town at Creasey Park – but they had to survive a spirited late rally from the visitors who scored a goal to reduce the arrears and came close to a dramatic stoppage time equaliser. The hosts made a lively start with a number of chances from Jack Hutchinson, Danny Talbot and Andrew Phillips. The visitors settled well and Under 19 Northern Ireland International and loan player from Yeovil Town - Ollie Bassett had the first shot on target, which was well saved by Jack Smith. Dorchester forced several corners, but Dunstable had the

SUPPORTER'S CLUB NOTES AHEAD OF SLOUGH TOWN

Both teams have had a great start to the season as the winter months start to kick in, unfortunately the blues have been stuttering a bit lately and we have lost a number of key players through various injuries. Hopefully we will have a couple of those missing players back for tonight’s game and we need to get behind Yella, Talbs and the lads with a rallying call to get them back to winning ways as I have no doubt that Slough are one of the better if not the best team within our league at the moment and there will be a no better way of boosting confidence than a win tonight. Please note that there is a slight amendment to Octobers fixtures with it now being confirmed that the game on Tuesday

MATCH REPORT: STRATFORD TOWN V DUNSTABLE TOWN

WOEFUL IN WARWICKSHIRE Two goals in the first 20 minutes were enough to see Dunstable Town fall at Stratford Town. The Blues went into this Southern League fixture looking upwards, as they were knocking on the door of the play offs places. However, their trip to Stratford was far from fruitful. Simeon Tulloch opened the scoring for the hosts with just eight minutes on the clock, and was instrumental in the second. He was brought down in the box and the referee had no hesitation in pointing to the spot. Jamie Sneldon stepped up and made no mistake from twelve yards to double their lead.

SUPPORTER'S CLUB NOTES AHEAD OF BASINGSTOKE TOWN

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you that came to watch the under 14’s game last week that was put on in memory of Ethan Houghton and his family. We have finished September strongly and find ourselves sitting nicely following an exceptional month, especially the game at our old favourites Kettering Town. After going a goal down and Kettering having a goal disallowed in the first 10 mins it looked as if we were in for a tough afternoon,. Kettering then had a player sent off but they battled bravely for the remainder of the half with old Blues favourite Gary “Mullers” Mullighan looking relatively untroubled as he mastered their defence. Blues never took the man advantage a

DRAGONS INFLICT FIRST HOME DEFEAT ON DUNSTABLE Before a ball was kicked there was a respectful minute’s silence to honour the memory of Seamus Dunne, former Dunstable Town player/manager, who died this week, aged 81. After just five minutes Dunstable needed to replace Shane Bush who was stretchered off suffering a head injury, being replaced by David Keenleyside. The visitors dominated play and took a deserved and unsurprising lead after sixteen minutes when Romane Rose connected with a through ball and fired through the legs of Dunstable keeper Jack Smith. Dunstable struggled for both possession and forward play and were again caught cold when Ashleigh Artwell shot at point blank range whic
