Working Together: Newport County DSA Funday a success

Over 500 people attended the launch event for Newport County Disabled Supporter’s Organisation (DSA), the ninth DSA set up as part of Level Playing Field’s successful Working Together project.


Last Sunday (July 19th), the newly formed DSA organised a Funday event for fans and the local community with fun attractions such as go karting, a bouncy castle and a dance show as well as a local band providing musical entertainment. Proceeds from the event will go towards enhancing the matchday experience for all home and away disabled fans at Rodney Parade.

DSA Chairman, Colin Faulkner, said of the Funday: “We are really happy with how the event went and was something for all ages to enjoy as we wanted it to be a community event.”

The association plans to work in partnership with the club and Rodney Parade Ltd to deliver improvements to the stadium in a bid to make the ground accessible and inclusive to all. Colin Faulkner said, “I’ve got a disabled son myself and we were going to games and always had some issues.” adding, “We’re working with the club but independently, and we’re working hard behind the scenes as well to make a difference.”
