After a long and difficult season in the SPL, the Club is now finalising its preparations for next season in the SFL in a positive mood. With the difficulties that we are facing in Scottish football it is imperative that everyone works together for the betterment of the game in its entirety and puts aside self-interest. In spite of recent media reports to the contrary, the Club genuinely hope that there is a speedy and positive outcome to the situation with Rangers. 

DAFC and Rangers FC have a long history of friendly cooperation with many players moving between the clubs on transfer or loan.  The Club's Chairman and Directors have all maintained the stance outlined when the administration of Rangers was first announced and that was that we had sincere regrets that administration has happened to a club of Rangers standing and wished a speedy resolution to the process.

DAFC season ticket sales are well ahead of expectations which shows that fans are getting behind the Club's pro-youth policy and are looking forward to the season ahead with optimism and exciting clashes.

However, there musn't be an over-expectation and it is important that everyone associated with the Club remains patient. We are not in the position where we are blooding one or two youngsters at this level, there are several in the squad, including six which have come through our own youth system. It will take time to achieve the balance of experience and youth that will lead to the type of performances we are looking for on a regular basis. The key thrust of the strategy is that once we achieve this balance, it will be provide a much more sustainable platform for further improvement.
