Dunstable Town

A season that started with promise for Dunstable Town tailed off as they finished in 16th place, on 54 points. This was the least successful season of their three-season tenure at this level and foreshadowed upheaval during this summer. 

John McLoughlin and ex-Canary Tony Fontanelle departed as Chairman and Manager respectively amid ongoing concerns about funding. Tony McCool has stepped into the managerial role and the club - now owned by its supporters - turned down an approach from a consortium because a condition would have been that they retrench back into the South Midlands League.

The home sides took the honours in the two games between Hitchin and Dunstable in 2016-17. In August 2016, the Blues won 2-1 at Creasey Park with Robbie Burns' late effort no more than a consolation. At Top Field the Canaries won 2-0 on Boxing Day with late goals from Kieran Barnes and Ben Walster after Oyinsan had seen red for striking Dan Webb in the first half.

Fontanelle had taken over the reins during 2014-15 and secured Dunstable's safety in their first campaign at this level. They had previously been promoted as Champions of the Central Division in 13-14 having won the SSMFL Premier League in 12-13 while remaining undefeated with 36 wins and 6 draws.
