28th November saw the first ever audio commentary using Access Audio equipment which allows partially sighted/blind fans to sit anywhere in the stadium.¬†The game in question was Motherwell v Heart of Midlothian. Pictured setting the equipment up (from left to right) is Billy Owen from the Rex Blind Parties, Keith Ferguson (SDSA general secretary & Hearts DAO), John McCaskie (Motherwell DSA) & guest commentator for the day¬†Stephen Craigan ex-player and Motherwell’s under-20 manager)


Dunfermline Athletic were one of the original 5 to have a DSA when we started to try and increase the number. When the club had major financial issues the DSA faltered and the very active chairman, Peter Lockhart, at the same time became a local councillor taking up all his spare time and much much more. However there has been some major activity in getting the group going again and recently we met with David Nugent who gave us an update on developments.

Highlights include refurbishment of an accessible toilet, see before and after pictures below.
