Over 100 photographs from Dorchester Town v Dunstable Town, in a 2017/18 Evo Stik Southern League Premier Division fixture on Saturday 24 February 2018, resulting in a 1-1 stalemate, Dunstable Town were sadly wooden spoonists of the Premier Division that season and were relegated to the Southern League Division One Central. Dorchester took the lead on 33 minutes however Dunstable equalised on 51 minutes through substitute Charlie Black who cleverly lobbed the goalkeeper from some 25 yards out following a quick breakaway:

Surprise surprise folks, Dunstable Town v Dorchester Town again, this time at Creasey Park in a 2017/18 Evo Stik Southern League Premier Division fixture on Saturday 23 September 2017, Dorchester Town disappointingly won 1-0 however Dunstable Town could do very little right that relegation season and won just four league games, at home to Farnborough and Weymouth and on their travels at Banbury United and former SSML friends Biggleswade Town:

Photographs from Dunstable Town v St Neots Town in a 2017/18 Evo Stik Southern League Premier Division fixture, at Creasey Park on Saturday 27 January 2018, St Neots Town won 3-2 with two injury time goals which summed up Dunstable Town's miserable campaign and they were relegated to Division One Central of the Southern League that season, Daniel Trif and Ryan Young netted on 51 and 68 minutes after St Neots Town had led 1-0 at the break:

Photographs from St Neots Town v Dunstable Town in a 2017/18 Evo Stik Southern League Premier Division fixture, at St Neots Town's Rowley Park on Tuesday 10 October 2017, Dunstable Town got a creditable 2-2 draw however the writing was already very much on the wall as it was only the Club's fifth point of the league campaign thus far, a miserable run then followed of just one point from their next fourteen league games:

A different album of photographs to that posted earlier from Slough Town v Dunstable Town in a 2017/18 Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division fixture, on 9 September 2017 which Slough Town won 8-1, the result flattered them with the score 1-1 at the break and Aaron Hudson equalising for Dunstable Town on 44 minutes, Slough netted three times in the last few minutes of the game in front of a surprisingly large attendance of 786:

Just starting a thread on Dunstable Town that can be used in future. I see from the local Dunstable press yesterday that the Club's former defender, Peter Kioso, has signed professionally for Luton Town, he had been at Hartlepool United since leaving Creasey Park but caught the eye of scouts from Kenilworth Road who paid an undisclosed fee to Hartlepool for him, I'm not sure whether Dunstable Town will see any of that money. Creasey Park appears to be somewhat of a breeding ground for talent with Nick Hayes joining Norwich City and Nathan Harness joining Charlton Athletic recently, the Club have been under achieving for many years now and who can ever forget George Best turning out for them in 1974 under then Manager Barry Fry:

Thanks, I hadn't seen that footage before, Barry Fry looks the part doesn't he and facial hair seemed all the rage back then, I wonder whether Jeff Astle was still thinking about his miss four years earlier in Guadalajara against Brazil that would have got England a deserved draw. It's quite sad to see this photo of George in the Dunstable Town changing room with a beer after one of the three games he played for them:

YouTube highlights and match report from Hayes & Yeading United v Dunstable Town on Saturday 27 August 2016 in an Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division fixture, Dunstable Town won 1-0 with a goal from Alex Cathline during a 2016/17 campaign where they were to finish 16th prior to the Club's sad decline and freefall of two relegations in as many seasons, culminating in their arrival back in the SSML last season:

I assume that the Dunstable Town Under 21 side are still going to be in the Surburban League Central Division this coming season, I gather that Leverstock Green have pulled their Reserve team out and Tring Athletic Reserves have moved to the Hertfordshire Senior County League so it's not surprising the League are currently looking for new blood:

YouTube highlights of Dunstable Town's win on penalties over Hellenic League Division One East, and former SSML Division Two, Thame Rangers in the FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round last Wednesday (2 September) following a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes. They now look forward to entertaining Hellenic League Premier Division Easington Sports at Creasey Park on Saturday in the Preliminary Round who were conquerors of Tring Athletic in the Extra Preliminary Round:

YouTube action, programme and match report from Dunstable Town's very disappointing 2-1 defeat to Aylesbury Vale Dynamos at Creasey Park yesterday (10 October) where they took the lead through Khy Smith-Reid on 19 minutes only to see Aylesbury Vale Dynamos equalise on 74 minutes and get a 94th minute winner from the penalty spot. It sums up the Club's campaign so far with two draws and two defeats in the League thus far and although they managed to somehow reach the First Qualifying Round of the FA Cup, with penalty shoot out wins against Thame Rangers and Easington Sports, succumbed 6-1 at Isthmian League South Central Division Barking, there was also a shock 4-1 FA Vase first hurdle defeat at Ampthill Town:

Over fifty photographs and match report from Didcot Town v Dunstable Town, on Saturday 17 November 2018 in a 2018/19 Southern League Division One Central fixture, and a 2-1 win for Didcot Town after the visitors had scored first through Christopher Wreh, Dunstable Town were relegated to the SSML at the end of that disappointing campaign along with Aylesbury FC:

Over 150 photographs of Dunstable itself which gets it's fair share of criticism with the 'overspill' from Luton however it doesn't look such a bad place and of course the Bedfordshire FA's luxurious headquarters are based there at Century House in Skimpot Road:

Not SSML but photographs from Dunstable Town v Basingstoke Town in a 2016/17 Southern League Premier Division fixture at Creasey Park on Saturday 1 October 2016 resulting in a 3-1 win for Basingstoke Town and a  2017/18 Southern League Premier Division fixture between Basingstoke Town and Dunstable Town on Saturday 14 April 2018 which Basingstoke Town won 2-0 at their then Ark Cancer Charity Stadium base, hammering a nail into Dunstable Town's relegation coffin:
