 Academy Day and donations
Topic Originator: brian  
Date:   Sat 14 Jan 09:26

The Dunfermline Youth Academy will be present at the game today against Peterhead.

Before the game, senior Academy players will be in attendance at each of the turnstiles armed with empty buckets. Hopefully by the time the game begins these buckets will not be so empty! The bucket collection at today’s game for the Academy will help defray the costs the club incurs in being the only League 1 club who has an Academy in the SFA Performance and Performance Progressive Tier.

So as you make a donation as you enter the stadium today, look closely at the face of the academy player holding the bucket. Next time you see him as you sit in the stands, he just might be on the pitch wearing a Pars jersey. Your contribution will have helped make that possible.

Also at half time, one of our Supporters Groups are showing their support for the Academy in financial terms by handing over cheques to help fund the multitude of activities that go on with the players on a weekly basis. Many thanks to DAFC.Net for the donation of £1000.

Bill Hendry the Head of the Youth Academy was very appreciative to the fans on DAFC.net for their fantastic support in the Raffle prior to Christmas.

Just to clarify, the PST will be giving a donation of £2000...just not today. It will come from the Margaret Ross Memorial Fund, and we`re working with academy head, Bill Hendry, to identify appropriate use of the funds.

They are the future of this club. We have to invest in our youth. The days of the Pars paying a transfer fee are long gone

The DASC Donation Shop give our proceeds to the Academy , and it was so nice seeing the boys there in force at the game last Saturday. Since we started donating to them we are now at £5000. So, please keep helping, it is the future of DAFC.

Wasn`t an amount given. Just said `suitable compensation for his services`

Could have been a fish supper for all I know 🤣
