DUNSTABLE TOWN FC “100 CLUB “

DTFC will be starting a brand new scheme to raise money solely for Tony & Gareth to use towards supplementing the playing budget. The money will be ringfenced and not used for any other purpose than to attract and financially reward the players who wear our shirt. The scheme will augment and not replace the 12th Man Scheme. We aim to attract 100 supporters, who will commit to spending £3 per week, and chose one number between 1 and 100. Supporters will be able chose to buy multiple numbers if they chose. Each number will be entered into a weekly draw by way of a numbered table tennis ball. Every Thursday before training one of the players will be chosen to select three table tennis balls fr

HAT TRICK HERO AREL AS BLUES HIT FIVE:

Dunstable Town gave debuts yesterday to goalkeeper Fred Burbidge, signed on dual registration terms with Borehamwood and to Kyle Lincoln, who played with such distinction that in days long gone, when there was still a Dunstable Town fans forum, I agonised long and hard whether Kyle was going to get my vote for Player of the Year, or whether it would go to Jonny Barnett or inspirational captain at the time, Graham Buchanan. Kyle re-signed for the Blues on Thursday evening after impressing management duo, Tony McCool & Gareth Jackson, playing for Crawley Green in a pre-season friendly at Creasey Park. Fred was named as back up goalkeeper for Borehamwood in their National League Play Off final

RETAIN THE GAME

Press Release 23rd August 2018 On the rise – Dunstable Town FC bolstered by Retain the Game funding England Under-19s Head Coach, Paul Simpson, believes funding from The FA’s Retain the Game scheme could help to secure the long-term future of Dunstable Town FC. The grant, which has been awarded to help aid the retention of adult male teams within grassroots football, will enable Dunstable Town FC to sustain their Development and Under 16 teams that will be supported over the coming years. Retain the Game is a programme funded by The FA and delivered by the Football Foundation. It awards grants of £750 to existing grassroots football clubs to boost their financial sustainability and allow the

MOLES DIG IN DEEP

Club legend, Jonny Barnett, one match short of his 200th appearance for the Blues, summed it up beautifully with a tweet after yesterday’s game; “On the training ground and in their own time, things will happen and Dunstable Town FC will challenge with the best of them, trust me. Youth will prevail”. And who’s going to argue with the likes of Jonny who is someone who’s been there, done it and has the proverbial t-shirt to prove it. Clubs with playing budgets bigger than ours can afford to sign older and more experienced players but as we are a pathway club who can only pay wages from a budget we can sustain we will continue to play and develop younger players as this is the only option open

FA Cup Replay

The cruelty of football was in evidence at Creasey Park on Tuesday night as Corby Town rolled up their sleeves and displayed some more of the steel we had seen at Steel Park on Saturday August 25th when, three goals behind at half time, they had clawed their way back into this thrilling FA Cup Preliminary Round tie to force a replay at Creasey Park. The margins between success and failure can be cigarette paper thin and thus on the 25th August a goalscoring opportunity thwarted by heroic last ditch goalkeeping saw Dunstable go from what would have been a three goal cushion to a solitary goal lead as Corby stormed up the other end and pinched a second goal. The rest, as they say, is history,

DTFC TOURNAMENT

Slightly over five weeks ago, James Slack, Operations Manager at Creasey Park, wrote to both Dunstable Town and fellow groundsharers, AFC Dunstable, to warn that without much needed rainfall the junior and youth section pitches at Creasey Park may not be ready for the start of the season or the DTFC Annual Tournament. The summer heatwave seems already confined to the dim and distant past and the pitches, so thirsty for water only a few weeks ago, looked green and in pristine condition, thanks to the timely rainfall, as the players, coaches and parents started to arrive while most of the local populace was still enjoying a Saturday morning lie in. With well- rehearsed, military style precisio

DUNSTABLE TOWN 3-3 COLESHILL TOWN

With a squad ravaged by injuries, suspensions and players being unavailable, Blues Management duo, Tony McCool & Gareth Jackson, needed to re-shuffle their team and gave a first team debut to George Naismith, and first starts of the season to Charlie Black & Ben Collins in what was believed to be the first ever fixture between the two teams. In all there were seven changes from the team that took the field against AFC on Bank Holiday Monday. Unbeaten in their last two games Town looked to turn optimism into more points and more goals, and got off to the perfect start when Saul Williams scored in the 3rd minute with a crisply hit shot which took his personal tally to three in his last two sta
