Deal Town: Football referee Nick Dunn joins board of directors at his home-town club

Monday 05th April 2021

DEAL TOWN has announced that they have appointed two new board members, one of whom being football referee Nick Dunn.

“Over the past few years’ the club is going from strength-to-strength and we have reinforced that with two new board members ready for the 2021-22 season,” said a club statement.

“Many of you know Nick Dunn throughout the footballing world and with his position at the Kent Football Association.

“He’s also a regular at the Charles Ground when officiating allows and an all-round great person to bring on board.

“Pedz Van Walwyk has been a fantastic supporter and follower of Deal Town for the past few years, often helping us out with a number of projects.

“We’re sure the majority will all know him for match days anyway. Deal Town through and through, a great guy to have around.”

Managed by Derek Hares and with Steve King as their head coach, Deal Town welcome Binfield to The Charles Sports Ground on Saturday, 10 April in The FA Vase Third Round.

However, the game will be played behind closed doors due to Covid-19 restrictions but are delighted to be attending the game and will bring you the usual match report and reaction during the course of the weekend.

The winners travel to Norfolk to play Fakenham Town seven days later in the Fourth Round.

Ashford-based side Kennington were knocked out of the competition in the Third Round by Sutton Common Rovers on Saturday 19 December 2020, leaving Deal Town – Wembley winners in 2000 under Tommy Sampson - as the only Kent side remaining in the competition.

Kennington manager Dan Scorer missed the game as he was self-isolating but Sam Fisher was in charge of the side and they were held to a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes but lost the penalty shoot-out 4-1.

Deal Town will be streaming Saturday’s match on their Facebook page, the game kicking off at three o'clock.
