 Extremely Impressed.

An elderly disabled friend sat throughout Saturday's game in the disabled section in the Norrie McCathie Stand, and came back raving about how well the club catered for them.

Throughout the game they were asked constantly did they want a programme,cuppa,bridie or anything, without it becoming in any way intrusive.The club did all it could to make them comfortable.

The attention of the club officials was truly exceptional and considerably enhanced the afternoon.

It's good to hear that the work done by the Disabled Supporters' Club Match Buddies and Programme Sellers (BTW we're not club officials, just volunteers!) is appreciated.

There were 30-40 people in the Norrie Stand on Saturday (wheelchair users, ambulant disabled and their companions), so it was difficult to look after everyone, as the kiosk wasn't open and it's physically quite a trek to and from the Main Stand Refreshment Kiosk with hot pies and cups of tea! (Especially when the Match Buddy doing all the journeys was one of the oldest people in the Stand!)

If anyone would like to become a Match Buddy, please drop an email to secretary@dadsc.fife.net. It's really very rewarding and not usually as much work as on Saturday!

And it was yourself that did these treks.
The disabled supporters club do a lot for not only our disabled fans, but for away fans as well, as do DAFC to help accommodate disabled folk.
