AFC Dunstable 2-3 Dunstable Town

Better Call Saul Ever since Saul Williams put pen to paper I’ve been biding my time patiently until I could finally headline a match report with, Better Call Saul. Not very original I know but probably better than my previous, and now disregarded, headline for the FA Cup match at Corby, which stole the title to a Celine Dion son, “ Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda “ , which had referred back to the North Leigh match where we “ coulda” have had a point, or three, Berkhamsted, where with a bit of luck we “ woulda “ have had a point or three, and then Corby, where we “ shoulda “ have been looking forward to a tie in the 1st Preliminary Round. But enough trivia, lets instead enjoy a well- deserved win ag

Corby Town 3-3 Dunstable Town

There are FA cup ties, and there are FA Cup ties, with thrills, spills, controversy, goals, sending offs and of course the full remit of every emotion known to man, ecstasy, pure unbridled delight, anger, sadness and pure unadulterated disappointment. If you were one of the 20 or so Dunstable Town fans at Steel Park, Corby, yesterday, I’m pretty certain you experienced each of the above. Come ten minutes to five, Corby Town players and fans celebrated the great escape of coming from behind to score three second half goals to send this pulsating tie to a replay at Creasey Park on Tuesday 4th September. Dunstable Town had surged to a three goal lead at half time thanks to a brace from Chris Wr

Development Team 3 out of 3

The management duo of Simon Reilly and Colin Lauder continues to prove a successful one, which in recent months has seen a succession of their young charges go on and play with distinction in the First team. Erin Amu, Ben Collins, Kieron Ogden, Jetmir Esso, Nathan Mullings, James Lauder have all passed through the Development Team ranks and patiently waited their turns for a crack at football at a higher level. Those of us present at Creasey Park on Thursday night witnessed a thoroughly deserved win over a strong Hartley Wintney side who had performed so well in the Suburban League last season, and whose First team have made such a promising start to life at Step 3 this season. Simon & Colin

Dunstable Town 2-4 Berkhamsted

Dunstable Town’s first home league fixture ended in a narrow defeat at the hands of near neighbours Berkhamsted in a thrilling, end to end encounter on Tuesday night. The evening started with an impeccably observed minute’s silence for Daniel Trif’s late wife, Ella. Our thanks to referee Ian Stewart and his colleagues for facilitating this and to our opponents who readily and sportingly agreed to this. Tony McCool gave a home debut to promising Development Team midfielder, James Lauder, who had impressed as a second half sub at North Leigh. There was a welcome back for Captain & Leader of Men, John Sonuga, but otherwise McCool kept faith with the side that had played so well for long periods

North Leigh 3-1 Dunstable Town

Dunstable Town kicked off their first season in the Evo-Stik Southern League Division 1 Central Division with an away trip to North Leigh FC in the picturesque Oxfordshire countryside. Kicking up the slope in the second half North Leigh put in a stronger performance, and scored two goals from set pieces. Despite a strong last quarter comeback from Dunstable, when the woodwork, some excellent defending and astute goalkeeping came to North Leigh’s aid, Dunstable could not add to their goal scored in first half stoppage time by Chris Wreh, neatly following up Arel Amu’s saved penalty. Dunstable’s penalty was awarded after Alex Taylor had burst through the North Leigh defensive midfield and back

Ella Trif Golf Day

Blues boss, Tony McCool admitted afterwards that he felt humbled by the generosity and commitment of so many players, managers, colleagues and friends who had gathered together in the beautiful grounds of Luton Hoo, to pay their respects to Ella Trif who lost her battle against cancer during the close season. Ella was the wife of respected, and popular, Dunstable Town player, Daniel Trif, who has conducted himself with the greatest degree of dignity and professionalism any of us could possibly muster when facing such adversity. This, was then, a fitting tribute to the wife of a much- loved member of the Dunstable Town family, and raised valuable funds for the Pink Ribbon Foundation in the vi

Last run out before the big kick off!

On an evening when temperatures began to reflect those of a normal British summer, Dunstable Town fans had a second chance to look at Simon Reilly & Colin Lauder’s emerging Development Team against Blues supremo, Tony McCool’s brother, Chris McCool’s, team, Sporting Lewsey. Wearing the red of Sporting Lewsey was none other than Dunstable’s own, Jonny Barnett, eager to get on the pitch and get some more valuable pre-season minutes under his belt. Barnett is a class act and looked lively in the visitor’s midfield. While the hosts had the lion’s share of play and created a hatful of first half chances, they were denied by a combination of brave defending & expert goalkeeping. Sporting created c

Todays Game

Today is an open training session/match starting at 12.30 between Dunstable Town First team and the Development Team the event is free but a donation towards the pink ribbon foundation would be greatful. Please show your support to Tony McCool and his coaching staff and both squads.

Dunstable Town Dev 3-1 Harpenden Town Dev

A brace from Clayton Lauder and a fine finish from Kamran Kahn were enough for Simon Reilly and Colin Lauder’s young proteges to turn around an early deficit and come out on top against a highly rated Harpenden Town Development team who had such a good season last term. A beautiful summer’s evening and a healthy crowd of nearly 60 saw an entertaining game with both sides playing open, attacking football. Harpenden took an early lead as they opened up the home defence and early doors looked good for their lead. As the half wore on Dunstable came back into the game and on the balance of play were worthy of Lauder’s smart finish. 1-1, game on. Theses matches may be billed as “friendlies” but do

Bedfont Sports 3-1 Dunstable Town

Pre-Season Friendly. It’s a football saying as old as the hills but this was the proverbial case of a match of two halves. Dunstable, in the first half, offensively minded, created a hatful of chances, but went into the interval with only one goal to show for all their attacking endeavours, a goal of clinical execution right on the stroke of half time, by leading goalscorer, Chris Wreh, only to be punished three times in the second half by a much sharper looking Bedfont side. The ground is situated only a mile from Heathrow and is neatly appointed with ample seating and covered standing for protection from the elements. Bedfont were runners up last season in the Combined Counties League and

Charity Fundraising Game in aid of Mind.

Sunday 29th July 2018 Creasey Park. Dunstable Town Supporters 2 v Bedford Royals 6. “Charity Begins At Home, Creasey Park, The Home Of Dunstable Town FC” You have to admire the enthusiasm and dedication of the players of both teams to play a game of football in blustery and rainy conditions in order to raise funds for the Club’s chosen charity, Mind. Although the weather undoubtedly kept many spectators away, the faithful and the curious were treated to an eight goal spectacle which saw the nominal visitors race to a five goal lead at half time. Such was the interest and the desire to help both organisations that thirty- five players in total represented both teams including former Dunstable
