A very small moment in history

If you look at the little be-scarfed figure third from the aisle on the right-hand side of the back row, in this characteristically fine picture  (c) by Donald Fullarton, you will be looking at a man enjoying his first Dumbarton home league game as a season ticket holder. That's me, after a 41 year wait. OK, the result wasn't quite what I would have wished for. Sons played some good football, but lost the game (to ex-DFC man Iain Russell - of course) some 12 minutes from full time. Frankly, it should have been a draw, and it would have been no injustice if Dumbarton had edged the match, having enjoyed superiority for major chunks of it. But this is fitba not Hollywood. Annoying. But still, for one supporter, a great day out, with hopefully many more to come.
