EFL Trophy game

On August 30 we play our first group game in the Checkatrade Trophy against Swansea City’s Under-23 team.

Matthew Breach, Chair of the DT Board, said: ‘The Dons Trust and Football Club boards have previously stated their position on the competition.

‘We intend no disrespect to Swansea when we say that if any Dons fan is thinking of only coming to one of the home group games in the Trophy, we recommend that they make it the Plymouth game on October 4.

‘We are a competitive club and we will aim to win this competition just like we aim to win every competition we enter, but in recognition of the Trust’s views on the Swansea fixture the Club will donate any net profits from that game to local charities.’
