Dumbarton Football Club’s Youth Initiative took another major step forward recently with the news of welcome sponsorship for the Sons stars of the future.

As part of the Trust’s Support Our Sons campaign, led by trust/commercial director Alan Findlay, two local firms have pledged support in backing DFC’s progressive youth academy.

 LC Roofing Limited, a Helensburgh based firm are now strip and kit sponsors for the club’s under-14s team whilst the Commodore Hotel, also based in Helensburgh have contributed by purchasing bench jackets for all four squads (U-13, U-14, U-15 and U-17).

The new season long partnership between the local firms and DFC will be beneficial to both parties as Scott Cameron of LC Roofing explains.

He said: “When I was approached to come on board as a sponsor I didn’t hesitate.

“The future of community clubs like Dumbarton depend on football talent coming through the ranks to the first team and I’m delighted to help out.

“The youth set-up at Dumbarton is first class and under the guidance of Jim Chapman I’m sure things will continue to progress.

“Charles Livingston, my partner in the company, and I are only too glad to be involved.”

Alan Findlay, DFC director responsible for commercial and youth development added: “This sponsorship agreement is great news and the club is delighted to welcome LC Roofing on board.

“The generation of our own players with the help of local businesses who themselves are growing is vital to the well-being of DFC going forward.

“Scott and Charles have been extremely generous and on behalf of the club I’d like to thank them.”

And it was a similar message from Robert Patterson who is the Landlord of the Commodore Hotel, now part of the Vintage Inns chain in Helensburgh.

He said : “Youth football is important in many respects and I’m pleased at being able to contribute.

Jim Chapman, DFC’s director of youth and community development brokered the deal and is delighted at yet another backer for the club’s youth programme.

He said: “Local firms an businesses are important to our community and development work at DFC.

“Robert and his team at the Commodore didn’t hesitate to come on board when asked and the contribution he and his company have made is a great boost.”
