Well done, my Sons
I emerge from my partial footie blogging hibernation to bring glad tidings. What Graeme Robertson drily describes as "an eventful last ten minutes" at Dingwall on Saturday gave Sons an unexpected Cup replay on 9 December. Donald Fullarton writes: "Brave Dumbarton shared the honours against first division Ross County [...] The home side seemed to be cruising into the fourth round of the Homecoming Scottish Cup, despite having striker Dyron Daal sent off in the 40th minute, through two Sean Higgins goals. But two goals in the last ten minutes by substitute Derek Carcary earned Jim Chapman's men a replay at the Strathclyde Homes Stadium." Way to go lads. You nearly gave Denise Currie an aneurism, but you did us proud.
