What A Day!

July 9, 2017

Sons Home (White)


Sons Away (Black)

WHAT a terrific afternoon at the Theatre of (Realised ) Dreams on Sat 8th July!

Two committed, enthusiastic and in large parts, skilful teams of Dumbarton supporters battled it out in the Sonstrust’s Play for the Sons game.

And a thrilling, not to mention entertaining match it turned out to be.

The final score was 3-3, however after the first 45 mins, it looked like it was a runaway win for Sons Away as they held a half-time lead of 3-0 thanks to goals from Grant Meikle, Michael Moffat and Fraser McCaughey.

But Sons Home gaffer Paddy Flannery introduced himself to the game with 15 mins to go, as did Stuart MacIver for the Away team, and the Padster’s influence fuelled a come back.

Dylan Ellis gave the Whites some hope with a cool finish before Paddy blasted home a free-kick which had the Away team baffled by the free-kick award.

Controversy followed with the linesman flagging for a penalty after the ref had waved play-on following a tackle by Sons Away right-back Alec Darroch.

Allan Kennedy gave veteran goalie Joe McCaughey no chance from a well struck spot kick.

A classic game of two halves and a match played in great spirit, the match ended all-square.

Thanks go to everyone who took part – it really was a great afternoon, helped by the superb organisation by the lads and lassies from the Trust and not forgetting the contribution from YOUR Radio.
