Droylsden FC manager Dave Pace determined to keep going


Dave Pace Droylsden owner and manager has vowed to keep on fighting despite Droylsden's dismal season, they have won only one league game all season and been relegated from the Evostick Northern Premier with a goal difference of minus 143. Three years ago they were landed with a vat bill of £250,000 which when added to other debts saw them owing £350,000.

Despite these problems Dave Pace has vowed to fight back. He has already paid most of the debt back instead of taking the easy option and going into administration. They have no money to pay players so they have given over a 100 local footballers a chance to play at this level who may not have otherwise have the chance. Droylsden's 150 plus hardcore supporters have stuck by the club but sparsley populate the 3,500 Butchers Arms.

After a difficult season Dave is optimistic about the future pointing to the debt nearly being paid off and promising to bounce back next year.
