The Sonstrust will be sponsoring Dumbarton FC’s man of the match award at every home league game this season (we don’t run it at cup games to avoid clashing with sponsor’s events). Often the subject of much post-match debate amongst fans, the man of the match award is your chance to reward a rock-solid defensive performance or an eye-catching display of attacking football.

Will a returning Sons player impress you the most or will it be one of Stevie Aitken’s new signings that grabs your attention with their performance in a Dumbarton jersey?

We’re looking for members to pick the man of the match at every Dumbarton home game this season.

Volunteers should be Sonstrust members. As the prize is a bottle of whisky, we also ask that volunteers are over the age of 18 or that young supporters are accompanied by an adult trust member of at least 18 years of age. You’ll be invited post game to present your man of the match with his award and the presentation photo will feature in Sonstrust and club media.

Volunteers should email their choice of game to Alistair Thorn at We will try to accommodate your request for any specific game for which you may wish to volunteer.

50/50 Sellers Wanted – Your Supporters Trust Needs You.

THE Dumbarton FC 50/50 draw offers fans the chance to win a cash prize at every Dumbarton home game whilst also contributing to club finances. The money raised through 50/50 ticket sales is split equally between the cash prize winner and Dumbarton FC, helping improve the playing budget available to the club.

The Trust will once again be administering the 50/50 draw during the 2018/19 season but we need ticket sellers to help sell tickets on match day. All we ask is that you are comfortable handling cash, are able to get to the stadium at least an hour before kick off and can commit to attending the majority of games. We’d also ask that volunteers are at least 14 years of age due to the cash handling involved.

The new Dumbarton chairman has made a commitment to working with fans to deliver a genuine community football club. We need volunteers to help make that happen. If you are able to give up a little bit of your time on a Saturday afternoon to help raise money for the club’s playing budget then contact 50/50 draw co-ordinator Alistair Thorn by email at with your details.

On Sat 23rd and Sun 24th June we are undertaking mini projects aimed at enhancing the appearance of the C&G Systems Stadium to improve commercial revenue and enhance the match day experience at DFC in preparation for the new season.

There will be various jobs around the ground both inside and out needing done, with tasks ranging from basic cleaning, tidying & repairs to decorating and painting work.

Everyone is welcome – we invite any Sons fan available to come along and join in. If you are available, we would really welcome your support!! If you can help, please get in touch with trust member Jordan Brownlee who is co-ordinating the two day event.

Jordan’s contact details are – e-mail –

We plan to meet at the C&G Systems Stadium at 10.00 am on 23rd June and again the next day (also at 10am) – so even if you can only make it along for an hour or two to help out, it would go a long way to helping the club looking after the stadium and preparing for the new season.

Refreshments will be provided. And as above, for any further info please email Jordan.

And on the Sunday afternoon following completion of the tasks, we are hoping to organise an opportunity to have a chat with club officials and the team manager about the season ahead.
