Football? Snow chance...

Well, happy New Year to one and all! Sadly, it will be a football free beginning to 2010 (and the new decade, if you are so inclined) for Dumbarton this weekend. The calling off of the match against Stenhousemuir follows recent weather-induced postponements against Alloa Athletic (home) and Clyde (away).

So this glorious Winter scene is in fact Strathclyde Homes Stadium at the moment -- or at least, SHS as it was when the pitch was last checked. Thanks to Robert Ryan, from whom I nabbed an otherwise pleasing image. He's a regular source of entertainment and wisdom on more than just fitba', by the way.

Anyway, let's hope we're back in action again soon; and back to winning ways. Meanwhile, attention is bound to be focussed on the January sales. Sons manager Jim Chapman has been pretty active in the marketplace since his appointment, and I imagine 2010 will be no different. The economics of the game (let alone DFC) are going to make it a tough winter in more than climatic terms, however.
