Re: Halifax Friendly Now at Blackwell Meadows

Hopefully HT will bring a couple of hundred through and will help the coffers. Let’s all get along and support DFC.

Re: BM - Surface

As I mentioned in the thread earlier after speaking to John Tempest last season he parked his car daily in the close season so to speak to make sure the Pitch was up to scratch. After speaking to DRFC there’s no one present daily anymore checking on the daily issues, not a Critiscim but there appear...

Re: White gone

I would imagine the appointment came down to cost.
Personally I’m sorry to Whitey go as he has been running the Academy since it started.

Re: BM - Surface

Chatting to a DRFC member last night in town, about £8k has been spent in the close season on the pitch and DFC pay 50% of that. If the pitch isn’t right then we should complain to whoever from DFC oversees the work. Matty has gone but not for the reasons in this thread apparently. TBH I think we ne...

Re: BM - Surface

Last few seasons every time I went down to BM to look at pitch, John Tempest always seemed to be around, on asking him do you live here one of the reasons he said was to check on the pitch during pre season, having been down today today it doesn’t look great after the Motherwell game, apparently Mat...

Re: BM - Surface

I chatted with Chris Stockdale at the end of lst season and he indicated pitch costs were shared and that work would be done done May/June ready for pre season matches. With lots of rain these last few months it should be better than ever, TBH I didn’t really focus on the pitch on Saturday but be in...

Weather looking good for Saturday and I’m looking forward to this one to see the new players. I would imagine they will bring 200 odd fans as well.

Re: New signings and outgoings

If Trotman goes and we successfully move on Burn and Glover, then the only first team players remaining would be Thompson, Wheatley and Galbraith! This really highlights what a cobbled together mess that Wright made of his signings, so much so that AA needed to have a complete and utter clear out. ...

Re: New signings and outgoings

We are I’ve heard right against the budget so don’t expect any miracle forward coming in. AA can work wonders with his players and bring the best out of them but no disrespect to Blyth the anticipation of DFC fans is a whole other league, let’s hope he can produce the goods this time round.

Re: Hospitality

Everyone is making a massive assumption that hospitality @ £45 next season is identical to hospitality last season. I am sure the club received feedback on the food last season. FWIW I was on a stag do with half the rugby first team and they were saying that the food was being looked at from their ...

Re: Hospitality

Food has improved towards end of last season. With a near 30% rise it sounds like they have sorted out a better offering, hopefully someone from the club can confirm it either way, if not then £45 is not something I’ll be buying anymore. As a fan funded club who actually decides on pricing as a regu...

As a regular in hospitality, £45 per match seems very high. The food has got better last season but can anyone from the club/Hospitality confirm that the menu offering has been dramatically redesigned if not £45 imo is taking the piss particular after DJs comments at the recent forum on the food off...

Re: What is clear....

is that we have been over paying for players (on wages and of course travel) and paying above the market rate. Alun seems more savvy and knows what a player should be paid in this league - all these players that have moved from Blyth have presumed moved to be on similar money at Darlo. I am wonderi...

Quakersfan ,is this not just you speculating and hoping you'll be close to getting something right for a change, I think your just taking a punt on what might happen and claiming it as fact heard from a good source.as you usually do.
Just what I’ve heard that’s all.

Re: Assistant Manager, Alan White

Head of Academy about to be advertised apparently, feel sorry for Whitey TBH as he has to apply for the role. I’m beginning to think the club has a money tree or is this the extra money raised above the target of £80K to pay for other staff. Perhaps SuperLes can confirm?

Re: Notes from the fans' forum

The next plan simply has to be long term. Even if it’s going to take 10 years to come to fruition the objective has to be for us to have autonomy of our own ground whether we physically own it or not as long as there is a very long term lease on it. Short term success is great but if it’s not under...

Re: Fans Forum Fri May 31st

Really enjoyed last night, very honest open answers. Have to say the comment by a fan in respect to BM hospitality food upstairs was a bit unfair. As a regular the food has improved since the turn of the year. Slagging them off is not going to improve the situation any time soon.
