You always take the weather with you

... wherever you go. So the song goes. That's especially true if your a Sons fan. Sunshine in the rain, and vice versa. But the last three matches have changed the current climate quite a bit for Dumbarton, with two wins and a draw dragging us off the bottom of the Scottish League and giving some hope of brighter times to come. A great pity, then, that the home game against foot-of-the-table Forfar had to be called off yesterday. As manager Jim Chapman commented, it would have been good to keep the momentum going, and an opportunity had also been fixed for supporters to talk with him after the game. Sonstrust chair Denise Currie commented : "It's a real shame that today's game is off as we had a lot going on at the Stadium today with full hospitality and of course the opportunity to quiz Jim after the game. But the manager is not getting off that lightly as we will organise another game for the fans to pose their questions!" That could be on 29 March, apparently, when I'll be in town -- happily.
