Jake Stafford hits a century
The popular midfielder marks his 100th appearance for Dunston UTS FC
Jake Stafford marked his 100th appearance for Dunston UTS FC in yesterday’s game away to Lincoln United.
Since signing for Dunston from Consett back in August 2017, Jake has gone on to lift the Northern League Cup in 2017/18 and The Northern League title in the 2018/19 season.
Returning briefly to Consett, as Dunston moved up to The Northern Premier League, supporters were delighted when he re-joined Dunston in 2019. A solid, hardworking and dependable player, Jake has rightly earned the respect of fans, his teammates and the Club Committee alike.
Speaking to the midfielder following his century of appearances he commented:
“It’s been an honour to make 100 appearances for Dunston, I have had my best football playing years here, winning both The Northern League Cup and The Northern League title”.
“I hope I can win more trophies with the club and make even more appearances”.
Dunston UTS FC Chairman Malcolm James
