DMUFC Weekly Blog (Nov 26): Players on target at darts fundraiser
By Luke Williamson
DMUFC took a step up with their fundraising efforts this week with the DMUFC versus DMURFC charity darts match in support of Movember.
It wasn’t a particularly successful night at the oche for the DMUFC boys as we fell to an unfortunate 7-2 defeat, with the footballing victories coming from Jacob ‘The Beaky Blinder” Morgan and Elliot ‘El Loco’ Luxford.
Chairman Connor Parkinson said: “The event raised about £750 for Movember but we haven’t had the final number yet.
“Thanks to everyone who came to support the event and the lads on the night and thanks to the DMUFC faithful who brought a brilliant atmosphere.
“We all know who the real winner was, charity!”
Without yet adding in the money raised from the weekend’s event and the bucket collections on campus last week, DMUFC have already raised more than £2,100.
This is a fantastic total but with just four days left in the month, we need your help to push our total even higher, every donation helps a great cause.
Back on the pitch, it wasn’t a great week for DMUFC as the First and Second teams slipped out of their respective cup competitions.
Both teams unfortunately suffered 4-3 defeats, with the Firsts falling at Lincoln Seconds while the Second team suffered at the hands of Loughborough Seconds.
Two valiant efforts from our boys but it wasn’t quite enough in the end, now our boys can focus on their league campaigns.
Tomorrow(WED,NOV27), the First and Second teams are at home, looking to get their seasons back on track in league competition.
The Firsts face Warwick Seconds at Beaumont Park while the Seconds face Bedfordshire Thirds at the same place, with both games kicking off at 3pm.
The Third team travel to face Aston Thirds (2pm kickoff) looking to recover from the 3-1 defeat they suffered at the hands of Birmingham City Firsts a fortnight ago.
The Fourth team are on the road, travelling to Birmingham City University Seconds (2pm kickoff) looking to bounce back from a recent defeat of their own to Coventry Fourths two weeks ago.
All games are on Wednesday, November 27, so, if you can, get down and support the lads as this week could be massive for the club.
Make sure you follow @DeMontfortFC on Twitter to find out how our lads get on as soon as the results come in.
