More silverware for the Sons?

It may 'only' be the Stirlingshire Cup, but another piece of silverware for Dumbarton, hot on the heels of last season's Third Division Championship triumph (followed by a harrowing and tumultuous summer), would undoubtedly be a welcome boost for Sons. Unfortunately I won't be able to get to the Final against Stenhousemuir at Ochilview on 13 October - even though it would have enabled me to take in two DFC games in three days - because I have an existing work commitment. Fingers crossed, though.

Meanwhile, we're away on the coast at Gayfield for a tough match against Arbroath on Saturday. It's the first on-the-road fixture of the Division Two campaign, and will test Dumbarton both for consistency (in the sense of 'gelling' as a team) and strike-power. The elements could also provide some severe defensive challenges. Once again, Alan Findlay has compiled a good Match Preview on the official website.
