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 vital work they do. Tony, went on to pay tribute to our friends at Kings Langley FC who made up two of the ten teams on the day, and to Queens Park Rangers, who had managerial and former player representation on their team of four. Teams came from all across the county and neighbouring counties,and were superbly looked after by the staff at Luton Hoo. Our thanks to them and of course to our own Events Manager, Nikki Lauder, and her husband Colin, Coach of the Development Team in helping.
