Sons Fans’ Forum – 25th July

July 17, 2019


FOLLOWING the close season break, and a lot of busy activity by our fund-raising action group, the Sonstrust is hosting a fans’ forum — update presentations and a Q&A — for all Sons fans later next week.

The meeting will take place from 7pm to 8.45pm on Thursday 25th July, in the Community Suite at the C&G Systems Stadium.

We are delighted to say that we will be joined by both Club chairman John Steele and by vice-chairman Colin Hosie.

This will be an opportunity to catch up with developments at DFC since the end of the season, plans and possibilities for the trust moving forward, ideas for further supporter involvement… and getting the message out about the need to #SupportOurSons!

Do come along on 25th July and join the conversation about how we move forward together! 


UPDATE – Awards 2018/2019

April 18, 2019


DON’T forget to get your awards night tickets to make sure that the event goes ahead.

Trust member Denise Currie, explained.

“The end of season event has always been a special night for fans. The fact that the club is away from home for the actual last game of the season at Arbroath meant that we had to use the week before for the event – it’s not ideal and time has been short in getting things organised.

“It’s usually a great night and we want to try and emulate previous events to generate much-needed fun and laughter.

“It’s been a tough season but despite that, we as fans feel we should try all we can to get the night well attended.

“A ticket costs just £5. We have plenty available, so we encourage supporters to take advantage.”

“There will be the usual awards to be presented – Sonstrust young player, Sonstrust player of the season, top goalscorer and our two fans awards. We will have a food option, plus the usual disco afterwards.

Tickets can be collected from Denise at the Club Shop, Alan Findlay, Gillie Brough and Robbi Docherty at the stadium this Saturday (20th)

Engraved at The Rock

March 6, 2019

DUMBARTON FC is inviting supporters to become part of the stadium fabric with an initiative aimed at funding important infrastructure repairs at the C&G Systems Stadium.

For just £20 fans can have their name, the name of a family member and/or a message of support etched on a faux brick wall to be installed within the home concourse, visible to all on match days.

Sonstrust member and initiative Project Manager Jordan Brownlee said: “We are excited to announce a fantastic opportunity for fans to have their name ‘Engraved at the Rock’ at the C&G Systems Stadium.

“As everyone is aware, the stadium is in need of some much-needed repairs and this is a great opportunity for supporters to help at little cost but with a lasting legacy.

“We’ve been working with Graham (Casey) at Signs Express Glasgow to come up with a feature that will not only look pleasing but will give supporters who contribute something to be proud of.

“Our target is fairly modest. We are looking to sell 400 initially, but in reality, the more the merrier.

“We have to start looking after ourselves and I’d urge Sons fans far and wide to contribute. It’ll make a great present too and we will be able to give a certificate of authenticity for each purchase.

“On the actual wall itself, we’ll be in a position to have it installed as soon as it’s practical to do so.

“We’ll also put a ‘Brickometer’ on the Sonstrust website to show progress as sales come in. Ideally, we’d like to sell the initial 400 by the end of April, so the pressure is on!”

“Similar initiatives have proved successful at many other clubs both in Scotland and further afield, and I hope Sons fans will make it a success at our club too.”

The text is limited to two lines per ‘brick’, however, there is no limit on the number of bricks fans may purchase.

A certificate of authenticity shall be issued as proof of purchase and of your continued support of the club.

To place an order fans are invited to contact Jordan Brownlee by email or via phone by calling 07702911891.

To pay online, a special Sonstrust Paypal account has been set up – follow the link shown here – Engraved at The Rock

Or download our flyer/order form here and send to the Sonstrust at the C&G Systems Stadium. All cheques made payable to The Sons Supporters Society.

Terms and Conditions

You will receive your Certificate of Authenticity with your purchase and the brick will be installed at the C&G Systems Stadium at the earliest opportunity

The Sonstrust retain the right to refuse any message that may cause offence and any unsuitable inscriptions
