Stadium Tour:

All committee members, old and new were taken on a Stadium tour of the new and improved accessible facilities now on offer at the football club by Justin Quick and everyone thanked Justin for all his help and understanding and taking on board what the DSA was hoping for when redevelopments were taking place to improve and further the football clubs accessible facilities and working with our DSA. Justin also thanked our association for our understanding and great advice given and thanked us for equipping out the Changing Places Room and other projects we continue to undertake.

Bucket Collection:

The football club kindly gave our DSA the opportunity to have a bucket collection on Saturday 14th September vs. Leyton Orient. We raised a total of £63.22 which may seem disappointing but this will help us greatly on future projects (our latest project will be announced very shortly). We thank all collectors for their time and to supporters for their very kind generosity as they do every season.
