Was that Tom Elliott playing as number 7 in the first half? Looked useful.

Working on the full highlights here. However we've got five cameras worth of footage to shift through so might take me a little longer than normal.



Brilliant, thanks. :roll:

My highlight was Chris Senior scoring and then celebrating flossing with his young un.. Now he is a Darlo Legend for obvious reasons

Who's the number 15 who congratulates Senior? Billy Bragg let himself go?

Think Aliadiere would be up for signing on? Still looks a player. Enjoyed Okocha's performance too.

Okocha's technique was lovely to watch. He's still got it.
Thought when our ex-legends came on that the Premier legends would score a few, but they played really well. Amar was quick!

Probably now the ex-tannoy person, he wasn't that good. :D

Thought the whole afternoon was great and it was fantastic to see some of the old team again. Well done to Marathon Bet for sponsoring the event and the people from Darlo who put it all together.

Totally out of order with these comments. I know who he is and he is one of the handful of individuals in the Supporters Group who have kept this Club going. I doubt he will do this for any more games but as usual if no one else steps forward it will as always be left to the few! So volunteer please if you are not happy.

Does he know that "Geoff" is a knight?
I'm not going to volunteer for that job because I'd be s*** at it.

With respect, just because he's a volunteer doesn't mean people can't say he's not very good at doing the speaker announcements. Being a volunteer doesn't make you immune from criticism.

I wasn't even aware we were in need of someone to do the speaker - maybe I missed a call for volunteers.

I think the point here is that this Volunteer, who I believe is a Director of DFCSG puts in many hours a week, 52 weeks of the year (no close season for him and the others). Judge him on that role not a couple of hours during a "fun" friendly on a Sunday afternoon. The other 1360 odd at the game, including myself, took the anouncements with a pinch of salt and in the spirit in which they were intended on fun day for the Club.

I'm allowed an opinion Arnt I? many people were commenting on it, just cos he is a volunteer doesn't mean I can't say anything negative.. I thank him for doing it , I couldn't do it

I know the game announcer very well and he is not on DFCSG board, he is a volunteer who stepped in to do the job at late notice, so lets give the lad a break please!

I stand corrected, thanks for the clarification Rob, he does sound a lot like someone we both know who is on the Board. Thanks again to "A Trialist" announcer I appreciate and enjoyed your work!

I'd just like to echo other fans comments and apologise for my earlier post and any offence it may have caused.

I suspect the people who are bothered enough to comment on a matchday announcer are the kind of people who write reviews on tripadvisor which are centred on things which are completely irrelevant.

I've never written a review on Trip Advisor. Any other suspicions as to the kind of person I am?
The announcer made us look tin-pot in front of a number of non-Darlo fans. People were laughing at him.

I thoroughly enjouyed the day. There was a great vibe, and not even the weather stopped the fun. It was good to see some famous faces, and some much loved ones from the past.

However, i walked away feeling that this was a wasted opportunity financially. There should have been double that attendance. there was little advertising/promotion outside of the existing sphere. It's a painful lesson learnt, but my thoughts are that the commercial side of the club has progressed as far as it can on a voluntary basis. The club needs a full time commercial/marketing manager. Somebody to work on selling advertising space, on increasing the saleable package as a whole. On getting the image ouf the club out there.

The club and supporters group do a decent job as it is and this isn't a dig at the hard work that does get done, but their time limitations are what is holding things back. Lets take the plunge and give someone a fighting chance of generating some valuable pounds.

Before anyone says anything, yes, I have presented this to the club.

I honestly don't know what the situation is with the crowds. I thought we'd be getting around 2,000 now we're back in the town. I know sight lines have been an issue, and i think that game against Halifax where hundreds couldn't see put people off...

Maybe the club should do some promotional games with cheap tickets this season, to try and raise awareness. Curzon would've been a good one. Barely any away fans.

Cheap tickets, advertise it as well as we can (maybe promoted messages on facebook / twitter) and encourage people back. I know we need to have the prices at a certain level to maintain the club in it's current form, but they also don't do much to encourage the floating fan back.
