That's a great initiative, would be great to see a good number of kids in attendance. Well done to those who organised it, shame it falls in the Easter hols in a way but hopefully we can repeat it on a regular basis.

A couple of today's announcements have had a real community feel, exactly what we are hoping for.

I'd say today's been a good day for DFC.

letters were sent home with the kids with a form to be filled in and returned to the school with adult money, tix to be collected later from the arena

whinfield were given letters about it a few weeks ago. Its all organised well we sent the money for the extra adults and we pick up the tickets from the arena before the game. This is the sort of thing that will get this club back on it's feet and back into the heart of the community , well done paul bielby for organising it all, an other fan doing his best to keep the club alive
