CHAIRMAN CELEBRATES WITH TOTTERNHOE LOWER SCHOOL

As part of the club’s ongoing work with Totternhoe Lower School, John McLoughlin, the Chairman, recently paid a visit to the school to address all the students and staff at assembly and give a talk to the Year 4 students. John decided to turn the assembly into a celebration of both the school and the partnership it has formed with the club. To this end, John presented Debbie Mitchelmore, the Assistant Headteacher, with a trophy to celebrate the school being the Community School of the Season and then with a medal in recognition of all the work Debbie has done to help the club develop its community education project. There then followed the presentation of flowers to Debbie and Shannon Murray

EXCITEMENT, FUN AND INSPIRATION WITH GEDEON

The Year 4 students at Totternhoe Lower School, our Community School of the Season, had a real treat when our all-action left back Gedeon Okita recently ran a training session for them. The session began with Gedeon outlining his football career to date. They were fascinated to learn that he was in the same youth side as premiership players Dele Alli and Brendon Galloway. Gedeon exuded all his natural Irish charm and the kids certainly warmed to his engaging personality and wit. The training session was excellent in that Gedeon got all the children involved in a variety of activities that developed their ball-control and passing skills. The session finished off with a number of matches, wher

MATCH REPORT: DUNSTABLE TOWN V CRAWLEY GREEN

DUNSTABLE STUMBLE THROUGH ON PENALTIES Spartan Premier side Crawley Green took a surprise thirteenth minute lead against their hosts when Sam Halfpenny fired in a right footed shot. Dunstable levelled after Vences bola’s shot was parried by Dean Bull and Shane Bush tucked in the rebound some ten minutes later. That was it for goals in the actual match and a penalty competition ensued with Dunstable emerging victorious 4-2. The game was again expensive for Dunstable in terms of injuries with Alex Cathline hobbling off in the first half with a pulled hamstring and in the last minute of the half Shane Bush sustained a head injury. Of interest to long term Dunstable supporters was the appearanc

LOVE LANCOT PREMIERE

Dunstable Town FC Supports the Love Lancot Premiere As more schools get to know about and be involved in the club’s community school project, the more invitations the club is receiving to attend and be part of initiatives and projects that local schools are setting up and running. This was the case in November, when the club was invited to attend the “Love Lancot” film premiere at The Grove Theatre, here in Dunstable. Students of the Lancot Challenger Academy had been involved in a project to create a film about their school with the main focus being why they loved their school so much. The club was more than happy to be part of this event. Danny Talbot, our Assistant Manager and prolific mi

MATCH REPORT: DUNSTABLE TOWN V LEAMINGTON

BRAKES ON THE BREAK League leaders Leamington continued their apparent march towards the title with a goal in each half. The game turned out to be an expensive one for Dunstable who lost both Gedeon Okita and Sam Doolan to injury. The more serious injury was sustained by Sam Doolan, after a clash of heads just after the start of the second-half. A delay of twenty minutes was needed before Sam was able to be stretchered off for the attention of the paramedics.

He was visited by Chairman John McLoughlin and manager Tony Fontenelle, who conveyed our best wishes for a continued recovery. Leamington’s

MATCH REPORT: DUNSTABLE TOWN V KING'S LYNN TOWN

EARNEST BUT UNEXCITING In a game of earnest endeavour but lacking real excitement until the closing stages, Dunstable and King’s Lynn Town fought out a goal-less draw at a chilly Creasey Park. Both teams tried to make inroads towards goal but produced few direct shots on target. An early chance for Dunstable fell to Jack Green, who with only the keeper to beat; he hesitated and enabled Alexander Street to thwart the attempt. An inordinate number of free-kicks punctuated this stop-start first half that affected the rhythm, and perhaps the best chances came from free-kicks, which for both sides were either wide or well-defended. Bola and Bossman had two meaningful forays but these were adequa
