TWO GAMES TO BE REARRANGED

Following Tuesday night's postponement, due to a frozen pitch, the game against Kings Langley will be rearranged soon. Also on Tuesday evening Weymouth were victorious over local rivals Poole Town, in their FA Trophy replay. This will mean that our trip to Weymouth, scheduled for Saturday 10th December, will now be postponed. We wish Weymouth all the best in their FA Trophy tie at Whitehawk and look forward to a trip to Dorset on a Tuesday night.

LAST MAN STANDING WEEK 5

Congratulations to Ian Bateman on winning Game 2 of our Last Man Standing competition. John and Scottie both limped out with draws in the Leicester and Man Utd matches, leaving Ian to collect the £65 after Arsenal's victory. Game 2 was our most popular one so far this season and we're hoping Game 3 will be in even more demand. Game 3 will begin the weekend of 10th/11th December. Forms will be available at the Love Shack (Dunstable Town Supporter's Shed) and to download here.

SUPPORTER'S CLUB NOTES AHEAD OF KINGS LANGLEY

Kings Langley are in the middle of an indifferent run at present which has seen them eliminated from the FA Trophy, be involved in a 9 goal thriller with Biggleswade Town who appear to be scoring for fun and earning a creditable point at Slough where by all accounts they could have easily run out winners. So who knows how this evening’s game will pan out? Last Saturday saw us pick a 2nd win on the bounce, 0 – 2 away to Cambridge City with first half goals from Danny “Stewie to his friends “ Talbot and a 2nd from Vences Bola, this was on the back of a fantastic midweek win at Banbury by a solitary goal from Sam Doolan, who is currently going from strength to strength. We have 3 home games on

THE NEW GENERATION

The Club’s Community School project is going from strength to strength with John, Paul, Tony and Danny all getting involved in various activities and events with local schools. Much more school engagement is planned for the coming months and will be reported on in match-day programmes. Thanks to the good work of the Chairman, club officials and the managers when they visit the schools and other external education events, the schools and the students are left with a good impression of the club. This has a positive knock-on effect as we now see more children with their parents and other family members and friends coming along on match-days. They are having a great time not only watching the ma

MATCH REPORT: CAMBRIDGE CITY V DUNSTABLE TOWN

ANOTHER DOUBLE FOR DUNSTABLE Dunstable secured their second successive win, both away from home, when they accomplished a league double over Cambridge United at Westwood Road. An unchanged team from the win at Banbury United saw them take a fifth minute lead when Vences Bola has encroached in the Lilywhites’ penalty area to slot in a cross to Danny Talbot who flicked the ball beyond Enol Ordonez. With the hosts having lots of possession but lacking in their finishing Dunstable looked dangerous on the break and by twenty-one minutes were 2-0 ahead, having exploited some defensive dithering. An unintentional back pass was seized upon and Vences Bola tapped in from close range. The home side

MATCH REPORT: BANBURY UNITED V DUNSTABLE TOWN

DOOLAN DOES IT FOR DUNSTABLE Dunstable ended their sequence of recent league defeats with a praiseworthy single goal win over Banbury United, a team they beat at Creasey Park in august by the same score. Although under a good deal of pressure for some periods, Dunstable’s disciplined defence and combative midfield played with improving confidence and Danny Talbot saw one effort cleared off the line. Zack Reynolds was called upon to do the same thing, when with Jamie Head out of position; he prevented what looked like a certain goal. Banbury had the greater possession and a good deal of multi-passing artistry, but they lacked clinical finishing. Having reached the interval, it was expected t

SUPPORTER'S CLUB NOTES AHEAD OF MERTHYR TOWN

We are looking forward to the return match from earlier in the season at their place where we feel we were involved in one of the best games so far this season. The result unfortunately went against us with Merthyr securing the win with 2 heart-breaking late goals to run out 4-3 winners. At time of press Merthyr are sitting 5th and the Blues 7th with a 6 point gap. We are convinced that Merthyr are destined to be pushing for promotion and if a not a play off place at the very least. Last Saturday saw us fall at the 2nd qualifying stage of the FA Trophy when we were well and truly beaten by Weymouth, who’s current league position does not really do them justice, although our cause was not he

MATCH REPORT: DUNSTABLE TOWN V MERTHYR TOWN

MARTYRS DO THE DOUBLE OVER DUNSTABLE Merthyr Town did the league double over Dunstable, with the hosts keen to get some recompense for the unfortunate 4-3 loss at Pennydarren Park earlier in the season, when they led 3-2 at 90 minutes, but conceded two stoppage time goals. There was only one goal today and that came right on half-time. The Martyrs started well and ought to have been a couple of goals to the good when Adam Pepera cleared a goal bound shot off the line and Kayne McClaggan took advantage of great assistance from Keyon Reffell saw his shot strike the underside of the cross bar. Dunstable’s best effort came from free-kicks, but goal keeper Glynn Garner was untroubled. The vis

MATCH REPORT: ST IVES TOWN V DUNSTABLE TOWN

HAPLESS IN HUNTINGDONSHIRE St Ives Town avenged their 4-1 mauling at Creasey Park earlier in the season with a comprehensive 3-1 win at Westwood Road. A lively opening saw equal chances but it was the hosts who opened the scoring with a well – taken goal after just ten minutes. Danny Kelly converted a cross from the left with a hooked shot. Dunstable leveled with a piece of smart play five minutes later when Alex Cathline headed home a Talbot cross. But three minutes from half-time Josh Dawkin restored the home club’s’ lead following a corner. Outfoxed tactically, Dunstable struggled to get on terms and they conceded a third goal after fifty-four minutes, following a neat cross from the lef

LET THERE BE JUSTICE FOR ALL…

…is the translation of the club’s Latin motto. It is one of the many interesting facts that Year 4 students at Totternhoe Lower School found out about the club when they were visited by Paul ‘Pipeman’ Harris in his capacity as Club Historian. Paul gave a presentation on the history of the club that stretched from the late 1800s to the present day. He brought along artifacts for the students to look at, showing them a number of match day programmes from different decades. Through Paul’s diverse and interesting talk, the children got to learn and see the history of the club and the town from a different and much more positive perspective. They looked at the 1960 DTFC official handbook which co

MATCH REPORT: DUNSTABLE TOWN V WEYMOUTH

CONTROVERSIAL DECISION IS COSTLY FOR THE HOSTS Dunstable Town were sent crashing out of the FA Trophy after defeat to fellow Southern Premier League side Weymouth on Saturday. With Vences Bola cup-tied and Gedeon Okita suspended, club captain Adam Pepera make his first start since injury, but the hosts started poorly as keeper Jack Smith made a good stop from Charlie Davis, with Dean Evans off target too. Davis was then denied by the crossbar, before the visitors took the lead though through Stewart Yetton on 32 minutes. Dunstable might have levelled, only for Kelvin Bossman to spoon a good chance over, and moments before half time, the Terras were 2-0 up when Ben Thomson netted after a corn

MATCH REPORT: BIGGLESWADE TOWN V DUNSTABLE TOWN

COUNTY CLASH RESULTS IN HONOURS EVEN With both teams buoyed by their recent success in the FA Trophy, this was an exciting game of end to end football that had an ironic twist in the tail. After twenty minutes of even exchanges, the pace of Vences Bola saw him score a remarkable goal to give the visitors the lead after twenty minutes. Bola came close just two minutes later, but it was the combination of former Dunstable Town players Innih Effiong and Tony Burnett that led to a remarkable equaliser for the home club on twenty-six minutes. A rapid exchange of passes presented Burnett with a chance he gladly accepted. Bola’s next shot was well held by the experienced Ian Brown, and in a fast b
