I`ve been looking oot the frock tonight for the Centenary Club POTY event at the Glen Pavilion. I`m fairly sure the ol pins aren`t summer ready so it may in fact be jeans that the Pars fashionistas will have to deal with.

Long ball from Gaston. Down to McDonagh crosses in and RyanW clears to Higgy. Long ball through to Clark but past him and on to Gasto.

92739 was the ticket for the 50-50 draw last week for £1k and wasn`t picked up by the winner.
Weather-wise it`s a bit cold, there`s a slight breeze and Tam McManus is still coughing up his woolly hat next to me.
There will be a lap of honour at the final whistle today by DAFC players and management.
Good afternoon from me Buffy for the penultimate Pars match in season 2016/17. The visitors are Greenock Morton who have already secured their spot in the play offs. The Pars are looking to remain in 5th spot and keep the relegation zone out of reach.
