DFC Foundation

Article in the Echo today.

Great work by the club in getting this off the ground, Boro foundation does very well within the community and with Steve Rose and Sajna Ali involved the foundation should make a positive contribution.

Re: BM - Surface

To be the fair the pitch looked very good on Saturday much better than most grounds we will play at this season.

Re: The Areana

If we do end back at the Arena it would be great if we could put safe standing behind both goals, not sure how much it would cost but could appeal to those who like to stand particularly the tin shed fans. Anyone know of this has been looked at?

Re: The Areana

A visit by the current league in next few weeks apparently to both grounds to view set up, surely they will see the Arena as a proper football stadium. After all the talk something may be happening.

Re: The Areana

My thoughts are, until a constructive plan is formally put to the football club regards the sporting village, we cannot make any decisions as to what, where or how things pan out ,it's no good second guessing or posting untruths, so we must wait. However long it takes. I personally believe that Dav...

Re: Curzon Ashton v Darlo

Was offered a lift to this game but couldn’t finish work early enough on reflection I’m glad I didn’t go. After three games I think it’s going to be an up and down season we need investment to compete for play off places.

Trots is a huge loss, with us having spent the budget how are we going to replace him. Perhaps open BTB Until end of August, I’d be happy to chip in.

Good shout Ghost. Blyth last season was 1680 in a very similar midweek game against local opposition at the beginning of the season. I can see at least that. I reckon 1750
It’s the main holiday period so with 1750 I’m glad your not in charge of accounts😜

Re: Gateshead game...

Also note that he said they were training on Monday night, where I think previously if there was mid week game they did not train before hand. Looks like we have a really professional group now both management and play...

Lots of positives in that interview. BM or SV? if we are paying the same rent but can make more out of commercial then SV is a no brainer plus should bring families back as they can actually see. I’ve also heard a rumour there is a potential investor interested which should surprise many not sure if...

Re: Josh Heaton

My guess he will be back and likely take a lower wage than before. Confidence likely low after St Mirren with few games so get him back fit firing on all cylinders and you never know we might sell him on again. Always thought he was destined for higher level football.

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...

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: 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. ...
