As part of our programme to upgrade some of our equipment that we supply to fans, we have purchased a new set of 10 waterproof ponchos for use by wheelchair fans visiting Huish Park. Each one has our DSA logo embroidered on them. With being sat right at the front in our wheelchair bays, you can get quite wet and cold. Tuesday night, 08 October against Woking, was the first time they were used. As you can see, Dave, Simon and Mike were only too happy to have their photograph taken wearing one.
DSA Portacabin base at Huish Park as at 04 March
Due to the possible takeover of ownership of the football club, it has been decided to put on hold the purchase of the portacabin, until such time as the takeover has been concluded and, the new owner’s development strategy has been ascertained.
DSA 10 Year Anniversary
