Comedy Night Success

November 1, 2018

Over 250 people attended our FUNdraising Comedy Night last Saturday (27th October), and Bar ’72 in the community suite at the C&G Systems Stadium was a fine sight to see.

A huge thank you to everyone who bought a ticket, played our reverse bingo and took part in the raffle.

We raised a total of £3500 which will be donated to Dumbarton FC as soon as all money is gathered in.

Again, thank you to our members who worked so hard to make the night a success. You guys and gals are a credit to the Sonstrust and Dumbarton FC.

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. 

New Management and Fresh Impetus

October 13, 2018


THE search for a new manager and a fresh sense of impetus is now in full swing at Dumbarton FC, following the departure of gaffer Stevie Aitken — and the Sonstrust is calling on all Sons fans to pull together as the club looks to reshape and consolidate after a difficult start to life in League One.

The trust, which brings together Dumbarton fans near and far, has been properly consulted in the recent deliberations by the board at DFC. The chairman and directors have listened to supporters at every stage, while recognising that their primary responsibility for the future of the club has to be discharged with full knowledge and recognition of a large range of on- and off-field factors.  Some of these are publicly visible, while others can only really be assessed with close connection to the hands-on running of the club. We thank them for acting decisively and thoughtfully when the time felt right to make a change.

Parting company with a manager who has shown real commitment and worked so hard for us is never easy. As a trust, we send our very best wishes to Stevie Aitken for his future, and we offer our sincere thanks for all that he has done  during his time with Dumbarton FC. That has included getting us to our first major Cup final in the modern era and negotiating the demands of the Championship with slender resources and a part-time team.

This season we have been hit by a horrendous and continuing catalogue of injuries which staff and players have coped with as best they could. We are still not out of the woods on that front, but the board believes that a fresh perspective can begin to turn things around as the situation improves, and all efforts are now being made to secure the right person to lead that task in the second quarter of the 2018/19 season and beyond.

As a trust we recognise that our members have often had sharply divided opinions on how to move forward in recent weeks. We now need to heal those differences and pull together in support of the team. In particular, we are all going to need to play our part in helping to generate the resources Dumbarton FC needs to move forward. This is a time for solidarity among all those who have the best interests of the Sons at heart.
