Thanks to Paul – Platform for Artists

December 2, 2018

A huge Sonstrust thank you to Paul Shearer who performed in Bar ’72 yesterday ahead of DFC’s fine 4-1 victory against Brechin City.

Paul played at the venue at the tail end of last season when Sons faced Alloa Ath in the Championship play-off final. The result that day certainly wasn’t as enjoyable as the win against Brechin, but on both occasions the music in the community suite was top notch.

Thanks Paul – haste ye back.

Trust Welcomes New Gaffer

October 21, 2018

#DuffsDumbarton #JoinJim.pngTHE Sonstrust, which brings together Dumbarton fans locally and across the globe, has welcomed the appointment of Jim Duffy as the club’s new manager today, and has thanked the chairman and board “for acting in such a careful, listening and timely way.”

A trust statement, reproduced on the club website, showing the strong partnership that now exists between the supporters and the board, continued:

“Jim Duffy is one of the best-known and most popular managers in Scottish football in recent times.

“Had his Morton team enjoyed a bit more luck in the 2017 Premiership playoffs, they could have become a top flight side.

“To bring a manager with his CV to the club is a real coup, and credit must go to the board and sponsors for ensuring this is able to happen.

“Now, as supporters and as a club, we must look to move forward.

“It is fair to say that results have not matched ambitions so far, bringing about understandable frustration.

“But starting from Saturday’s home game against East Fife, we have a fresh canvas and an opportunity to climb the League One table.

“The clocks have not even gone back yet and we still have 26 more opportunities to put points on the board.

“We look forward to seeing as many supporters as possible at the East Fife game on Saturday – and hearing them getting behind the team and its new regime.”

Our picture (courtesy of Donald Fullarton) shows Jim (second from left) with (left to right) DFC vice-chairman Colin Hosie, chairman John Steele, and DFC’s Sonstrust and commercial director Alan Findlay – who organised today’s proceedings. Thanks also to reporter Andy Galloway for all his work around this appointment.
