Trust Travel – Kilmarnock

July 25, 2017

A combination of summer holidays (who knew?) and undoubtedly Sons poor form in the Betfred Cup group stages means that we did not get enough interest from fans to organise a supporters bus to the final game of the competition’s sectional matches.

Hopefully when the league campaign begins in August, interest will increase and normal service can be resumed!

Man of the Match Awards 17/18

July 12, 2017

Another league season approaches and Dumbarton FC are looking forward to a 6th successive year in Scottish football’s 2nd tier.

Not since seasons 1997/98 to 2001/02 has the club spent 5 years or more in the same division (when ‘we’ were anchored in the bottom tier of Scottish football). It’s also our longest sustained period in Scotland’s 2nd tier since promotion following season 83/84 took the club back into Scotland’s top flight.

With Brechin joining us as a part-time team in a league that is again dominated by full time rivals, we look to stamp our authority as Scotland’s best part timers and battle to maintain our status as a now firm fixture of the Scottish Championship.

The performances of Stevie Aitken’s squad will surely spark some passionate debate and that’s where we need the involvement of Sonstrust members to fuel the half-time and post match chat.

Ever fancied sparking that post-game discussion over a man of the match performance?

Heard the man of the match winner and thought “he might have had a good game, but his teammate was even better”?

Now’s your chance.

The Sonstrust will again be sponsors of the man of the match award for the 2017/18 season and we’re looking for your help.

We need a volunteer to select their for man of the match at every Dumbarton home league game. All we ask is that you’re a current Sonstrust member, that you can text your selection to us before the 85th minute of the game and that you’re able to stay behind after the match for around 30 minutes to present your winner with their prize.

We’ll announce your choice over the stadium PA system and the award presentation pictures will be used by the Sonstrust online, on social media and in the match day programme.

If you’re interested in picking the man of the match at a Sons home league game this season then please get in touch with trust board member Alistair Thorn at

If there’s a particular league game you’d want to volunteer for then let us know and we’ll try to make it happen.

We can only continue to sponsor and run the man of the match award thanks to the support and participation of our members.

Curry and a Sideorder of Laughs

July 9, 2017

LAUGHTER filled Dumbarton Football Stadium’s community suite on Saturday evening as it was transformed into a comedy club for a special one-night only show, raising funds for the club.

The event, which included a curry meal, featured comedians Gary Little, Rossco McLelland, Susie McCabe and MC for the night John Gavin.

The sell out show  was well received by everyone who attended which also showed off the capabilities of the club’s excellent venue facilities.

With beer flowing and everyone in good spirits, we took our seats to welcome John Gavin, our compere for the evening, to get the crowd warmed up.

All comedians interacted with the audience with ease, delivering seamless comedy with the crowd joining in, many with tears rolling down their cheeks.

Thanks to everyone who supported the event and special thanks to Gary Black, who without his help, this event would not have taken place.


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.
