STUDENTS VISIT DUNSTABLE LIBRARY

As part of our ongoing partnership with Dunstable Library, librarians Carly and Linda ran a workshop for Year 9 students of Weatherfield Academy, our Community School of the Season. The workshop consisted of a tour of the library and the students learning more about the social history of the town as well as the history of the football club. The workshop was based around the students creating scrapbooks with interesting articles and stories about the club and the town. The students used the library’s microfiche reader to explore past editions of the Dunstable Gazette and found some interesting facts about the history of the club, which they included in their scrapbooks. The students were also

TOWN HOSTS THE FA PEOPLE’S CUP

On Friday 23rd February, the club had the honour of hosting a first-round local heat of the FA People’s Cup. This was a result of our ongoing partnership with Bedfordshire FA in promoting football in the community at all levels, for all abilities and to give young people who may not otherwise get an opportunity to play, a chance to do so. We would like to thank Josh Spavins, of the Bedfordshire FA along with James Slack at Creasey Park for making this a reality. There were local teams that included our Community Partner School, Weatherfield as well as Chiltern, based in Houghton Regis and Cedars from Leighton Buzzard. Teams also came from further afield making up a total of 55 local football

REPORT: DORCHESTER TOWN

Dunstable made the long trip to Dorchester and were rewarded with a well deserved point after a particularly strong second half. Substitute Charlie Black's impressive lob, following a a long clearance from Alex Ward in the 51st minute, cancelled out Ashley Pope's 33rd minute opener for the home team. The Blues welcomed back Peter Kioso at full back, Ethan Lamptey to the midfield, and pushed club captain John Sonuga up to centre forward. In a first half that lacked quality, Dorchester marginally shaded the contest, but found Blues keeper Will Hunt alert , covering all angles with ease. Dunstable had their moments going forward with Andrew Osei- Bonsu charging down a clearance by Dorchester

REPORT: HEREFORD

Fans from both teams came out in force for this fixture and it proved to be The Blues biggest crowd of the season with just over 500 in attendance. Hereford fans came from far and wide and played their part in not only supporting their team but creating a great atmosphere. The fans mingled and chatted and this was a great advertisement for non-league football. Mutual respect was shown both on and off the field. It was a pleasure to host the fans, officials, players, manager and coaches of Hereford FC. Dunstable Town youth team mascots led out the teams and had a great time including having their photos taken before the match began. The Blues welcomed back Captain, John Sonuga at the heart of

REPORT: STRATFORD TOWN

Ten o’clock Saturday morning and local referee, Alex Rayment, surveyed the Creasey Park pitch in the biting wind, phone to his ear discussing with match referee, Chris Reeson, 100 miles away, areas of concern which may prevent the game against Stratford Town going ahead. The Met Office app was keenly studied & somewhat worrying forecasts for rain later in the morning and during the afternoon were at the forefront of our minds. Alex & Chris gave the thumbs up and the pitch passed the first of the three inspections that took place on Saturday. Inspection number two came at 1 15pm on a damper surface than three hours earlier. There was standing water in the middle of the pitch swollen by the st

CHAIRMAN'S FRIDAY THOUGHTS

Football can be a cruel game as those of us who were present at the last home game against St Neots where we lost to a goal in the fifth minute of time added on. However, we remain unbowed, undaunted and determined to carry this club forward. As we enter the final third of the league season, it is fair to state that on and off the pitch the club has been on a significant journey. Off the field, countless hours have been put in by tireless volunteers to ensure the club can have a stable and sustainable long-term future. This has included putting in place new and transparent financial and governance systems and processes; ensuring old debts have been paid off and all current bills are paid on

REPORT: KING'S LYNN TOWN

I’ve heard some strange requests at football matches over the years, but none more so than yesterday when Dunstable Town Commercial supremo, Pete Mills, was approached by a King’s Lynn fan who asked if he could buy a DTFC Club tie. Pete being one of the nicest guys I know declined any payment and simply removed the Club tie he was wearing and handed it to the very surprised and very grateful supporter. The gentleman in question told us he had a collection of over 400 different club ties. Manager, Tony McCool was given a selection headache with key personnel out either injured or unavailable. There was no Kieran Ogden or Daniel Trif, who have established a strong rapport together and earned p
