WE play Workington Town at the Keepmoat Stadium on Sunday (3pm) in a game which is vital to both clubs’ promotion ambitions.
With both clubs on 37 points, along with Keighley, in joint second, I think whoever takes the spoils will finish at least third in Championship One.
Last weekend our lads had to be very patient and stick to the game-plan for the full 80 minutes to beat a strong Whitehaven side 20-18.
Whitehaven were a big set of lads and led 18-10 with 10 minutes to go. But we hung in there and once again our fitness levels came through with Nev Morrison scoring the winning try in the last two minutes.
The fans who turned up where on the edge of their seats right until the end - but to be honest I was disappointed with the turn-out for such an important match. I felt the team deserved more support from the town.
We are at home again this weekend against another team vying for that top-two finish and we are going to need all the support we can get so please get down to the Keepmoat to cheer us on.
If we can get through this one we are in with a great chance of going to another play-off final.
As this is the last league home game of the season I would like to thank my fellow director Steve Scholes and chairman John Scarrow, and Ray and Jackie Green, Adam Lloyd Martin Rowlands in the Community Department for all their hard work all year.
I would also like to thank main sponsors Centurion Europe, and Piper’s Car Sales, Green Energy Solutions, Furniture Factors, Warpaint Cosmetics, Kiwi Promotions, Crozier Jones, Doncaster Dome, Full Effex, Security, Positive Futures, X-Blades, Goose Hill Cards, Tommy and Lisa Morton. Without people like them we would not be here.
So thanks for your contributions. I hope you have enjoyed the season and will continue your support of the Dons.
And thanks to the supporters for sticking by the club. We have made massive strides in the last two seasons.
For two years running, since I helped save the club, due to the help of everyone I’ve mentioned, we haven’t had to call an emergency meetings to tell people that the club is in financial trouble again, which must be some sort of relief given what had happened in the past.
Once again thanks for your support - we must keep spreading the word about the Dons.
I don’t want us to just be alright; I want us to kick on to the next level so if you know of any companies or individuals who would be interested in sponsorship please pass them my details.
