Drum Roll For Our Poll!

December 6, 2017

THE results are in from our recent online poll!

Last week we posed the question – “Are you broadly in agreement with a young group of supporters having a drum allowed into the YOUR Radio 103FM Stadium, to help boost the atmosphere on matchdays?”

And why did we do that? Read here – DRUMMING UP SUPPORT

It’s clear that the overwhelming majority of people who took part in the poll agree that having young supporters help create a positive atmosphere at the YOUR Radio 103FM Stadium can be a good thing.

Of all the votes cast, 83.26% voted YES.

So, what happens now?

Liaising with DFC, we have reached an agreement with group of supporters who originally brought in a drum to help in their efforts to support the team and they will be back for this Saturday’s game v Livingston, subject to a few rules and regulations that have been thrashed out.

Good news indeed.

Online Poll – VOTE NOW

November 28, 2017

FOLLOWING constructive conversations between ourselves, DFC and the lads who are looking to bring along a drum to home matches at the YOUR Radio 103FM Stadium, part of the process is to try and gauge the thoughts of Sons fans who attend games regularly.

The poll, below, is quite straightforward and we hope that as many fans will take part as possible.

There is also a comments section for anyone who votes to offer constructive observations – abusive postings will be deleted.

The poll will be open for 1 week, so plenty time to get involved.

Drumming up support for the Sons

November 25, 2017

Page 25 Pic 2WE wanted to let fans know that constructive conversations have begun following the incident involving the drum at the Scottish Cup tie against Elgin City last week.

The way the removal of the drum from a group of young fans was carried out, after some complaints from others nearby, was unfortunate and produced an understandable reaction from other supporters. But we are confident that arrangements can be made to handle things better in future. This needs to be done in a way that encourages both existing and new supporters to generate a positive atmosphere for the team and for other fans.
We have had quite a few representations about this incident since Saturday, and it seems that the great majority have no problem with drumming, singing and chanting. That’s a normal part of the game and of fans’ enjoyment of it.
At the same time, we absolutely appreciate that some may not want to be in the immediate vicinity of a drum, and that it can be difficult for stewards and officials to make snap decisions in the middle of a game.
The way forward is therefore to get everyone together to work out an agreed solution based on cooperation and goodwill. What we want to come out of this is for more and more people to want to come along to get behind the Sons in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere!

DIMITRIS Froxylias was the choice of Trust member David Ferguson as our DFC man of the match for ‘Jimmy’s’ performance against Dundee United.

Despite the 2-0 loss Froxy was at the heart of almost all Sons’ moves and was deserving of yet another bottle of whisky.
