Dennis will be a menace

Well, that's what Dumbarton supporters are hoping from the latest signing to arrive at SHS, to complement two graduates from the club's youth initiative. Thirty-three year old Striker Dennis Wyness looks to be an excellent addition to the Sons squad -- coming to us via Queen of the South on loan, but with very good credentials from the SPL with Aberdeen, Inverness Caledonian Thistle (where he was a top scorer), Hearts and most recently St Mirren. He should give Second Division defences a torrid time, and that's just what we need. The Scotsman today followed boss Jim Chapman in speaking of 'ambitious Dumbarton', while the Glasgow Evening News reckoned that Dennis could indeed menace the Binos in tomorrow's clash with Stirling Albion. Wyness struggled a little in his second season with Gus MacPherson's Buddies side, but he obviously still has a lot to offer.

In a show of club solidarity, Chappie declared: “I think it is a testament to the directors of Dumbarton that they are managing to attract these kind of players. They have supported me fantastically." Meanwhile, chair Colin Hosie has started a weekly column on the official DFC website -- and in the latest installment he defended the gaffer against disappointment from some supporters that the Sons have not appeared too active in the transfer window. The cynics will say that it all looks too cosy (that's what cynics are for), and sparks could yet fly over ground relocation plans. But trying to pull together never did a football club any harm. Just ask... well, loads of 'em, frankly. [Thumbnail picture by Jon Leino].
