    Co-op Supports DADSC

    We have a number of ambitious (large-scale) projects in mind - the main aim is still to get wheelchair access to at least some of the 1st Floor Function Suites, preferably by a lift but if for any reason that proves impracticable then we will consider other methods. We would also like to improve the accessible toilet arrangements for users of the Purvis Suite, and in the longer term (when DAFC is in the Premiership!!!) an additional viewing platform in the North Stand would be desirable. There will always be other smaller outlays, and anyone is welcome to attend the next DADSC meeting at 7pm on Monday 27 January in the Jock Stein Suite at EEP.

    Co-op Supports DADSC

    Thanks to everyone who has signed up to this scheme (1% of what you spend on Co-op goods and services will find its way to DADSC - just remember to take your Co-op member's card!) £75 has been raised in the last few weeks, so by the time the project ends in October 2020 there could be several hundred pounds coming our way. Every little helps. Here's the link again: https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/39515

    Name these players (please!)

    From suggestions made elsewhere:No 1 is Bill Dunn (confirmed by his son).No 2 - no suggestions so far.No 3 it's been suggested this could be Bobby Kirk - can anyone confirm this?No 4 seems to be Ernie Turner (identified by 2 people).
  11. The Heritage Trust recently acquired several glass negatives of DAFC players of the mid/late 1950s. Most of them we recognise, but we are struggling with these ones - can anyone help?
  12. The Heritage Trust is pleased to sponsor the hospitality table cards for the Purvis Suite, starting in the new season. Each of the 14 tables will feature one of the many great games played at East End Park since the first one on 19 August 1903.

    Supporters' Council Thursday 16 May

    Part of me agrees with Buffy on this - airing it with such force in a public forum does lead to speculation, even though presumably the players involved and the previous manager will all have moved on. I had heard similar stories before, but equally I had heard stories about the previous management team's approach - I don't know what the whole story is, and perhaps no-one does. Ross and Stevie both admitted making mistakes (without going into detail), but I wonder if, perhaps unconsciously, there was an element of deflection in criticising the attitude of some players. They clearly felt strongly about it, but I'm a believer in keeping dressing-room problems in-house. Although it probably doesn't matter much now, an affair like this tends to hang around for years in supporters' minds, and it's a fair bet somebody will refer to it on a forum somewhere down the line.
  14. The Heritage Trust has access to 49 interviews (sometimes quite lengthy) with former DAFC players and staff, originally collected for the superb "Into the Valley" book.We would like volunteers from the Pars fanbase to listen to one or more of these, and pull out some suitable quotations for possible use in another format - fully crediting the “Into The Valley” project of course.If you are interested in helping, please send an email to "enquiries@daht.org.uk". Thanks.
