DSA members and their guests enjoyed a delicious meal and were delighted that Sergio Torres attended as guest of honour, mingling with everyone and sharing stories of his time at the club. Among our guests was club President Les Turnbull, who was great company as always.

We’re a small club but are punching above our weight compared to many other football clubs, from all leagues, regarding the facilities for disabled supporters.
