Taking my 3 year old daughter along to the game on Saturday. Might be a daft question but does anyone know of anywhere in the ground that’s a bit friendlier on the ears? Want to be able to take her along but don’t want some overgrown child roaring obscenities in her lugs! Can’t have her going into nursery telling everyone that the referee is a *anker ! Ha.

Section A of the Norrie (end closest to the Main Stand) is the "Family Section" so probably there. If she sits near the front you probably won`t hear too much - sometimes there are a few moans and groans from near the back but not too much that`s sweary or inappropriate. Other option would be the Main Stand which is usually a bit more reserved.

Alter Par, I started to take my son to games when he was 11 weeks old. It was when we played Kilmarnock, we got a penalty so I told him that he would see his first Dunfermline goal. John Donelly scored. He then started to go to almost all games when he was about 2. We had seats in the wing of the main stand then in the centre of the main stand. There was very little bad language at either area. We now 35 years later have seats at the back of the Norrie. You do hear some bad words there but it's normally aimed at PG. Make sure she wears warm clothing.

We sit in the Family section in the Norrie and it's good. There's even a bloke that's so restrained his shouts at the ref are like something out of Oor Wullie.

Really appreciate the responses guys, will definitely take her along now. I’ve only ever sat in areas with heavy amounts of swearing so had to ask the question.

11 weeks old is impressive! Great stuff!

Be prepared for her to bored senseless after about twenty minutes and ask “ can we go home now?”

My wee boy did at the Patrick 0-3 game, mind you I wanted to go home too….

When you are passing the DASC DONATION SHOP & TEA ROOM , come over to the table on the pavement to collect a complimentary bag of sweets for your wee girl to take into the football match with her.
with regards to where you sit, I would say the family section quite near the front seats would be a good idea. I sit there with my two friends and we are oldies. I wouldnae have the energy to to get up and shout.

I think this is the game for Peter Grant. If he doesn’t win against a team recently relegated and just as bad as us, then I can see him getting the sack after.

I'm planning on taking an older gentleman who has dementia. He used to be a season ticket holder. He repeatedly tells me about the days when Blackburn regularly sent their young players to Dunfermline on loan.
Anyhoo where is best to take him, and can I take in outside snacks/coffee. I won't be able to leave him to get something and I doubt he could wait in a queue.

PARot, the reason i Sit in the family section is you have a clear view right up the pitch without moving Don`t know about taking food in, however, if you can . the DASC DONATION shop will make up a complimentary snack bag for your guest.

I often buy filled rolls from Marv’s Emporium and never had any problem taking them into the ground.

PARrot,

If you make yourself known to the handsome DADSC Match Buddy situated on the Platform above the Undercroft (Tunnel) he could go and get the order for your friend.

If you going in your working clothes he will probably recognise you. Though, I am not sure that security will let you bring in the motorbike - unless you tell them it is a mobility scooter.

I think he'd have to be sacked, our new owners surely wouldn't want to lose the support within the first season.

Better getting a season ticket for £18. Better value if taking them to a few games over the season.
Jumps to £14 a game for 12 year olds which in my opinion is poor.

I would get her some ear defenders, keeps out the swearing, but also the loud noises of a football game. Can be a bit overwhelming for some young ones.

I agree. £14 for a 12 to 17 year old is poor pricing and doing nothing to attract the next generation of fans.

12 to 17 price down and OAP price up to balance the books.

Get her a black out eye coverings as well, save her being subjected to some eye bleeding football.
