Desmond The Dragon Says Hello!

Hi, I am Desmond the Dragon – Dale’s mischievous mascot! And although I am a dragon, don’t worry, there will be no fire breathing in sight – I’m one of the friendliest dragons you’ll ever meet!

I love being a part of every matchday at the Crown Oil Arena and meeting all my fellow Rochdale-supporting friends. I’m also very happy to meet fellow football fans, whoever they support, too, so even if you’re a visiting supporter, please stop me for a chat, a high five or selfie. I love meeting new people and posing for selfies!

Away from the Crown Oil Arena, I also like to get actively involved events all over the local area, so there’s a good chance that you might also spot me out and about in the Rochdale Borough. I’ve mostly recently been involved in turning on the Christmas lights in Norden, I strutted my stuff in the Rochdale Half Marathon, 10K and Fun Run event and posed for photos with the the Middleton Arena Pantomime celebrity cast!

I always love seeing the photos from our meetings around the ground and the town, so if you have your photo taken with me, send them to our media team via our social media accounts. Twitter - @officiallydale | Facebook – Rochdale AFC | Instagram - @officiallydale

See you soon!
Your friend, Desmond the Dragon
