Pat's the goals man

This article first appeared as Pat helps Sons strike the right note on the official DFC website.

Pat in action against Ayr
In-form striker Pat Walker has made quite an impact since he first appeared (and scored) for Dumbarton in a 3-2 home win against Ayr United on 13 November 2011.

Sons were rooted to the foot of the table at the time. The performance proved a vital boost. And since January, Pat has added another six goals to his league tally.

The Scottish Football League News featured an in-depth interview with the busy front-man at the end of last month. You can still read it online here.

Pat, who speaks about his New Zealand connections and wide football experience, says of his arrival at SHS: “Alan Adamson invited me to come in for training as Dumbarton is really close to where I teach. Scoring against Ayr was a weight off my mind and winning was a big thing for Dumbarton as well.”

He adds: “The spirit was good when I started, but you can really sense that everyone is looking forward to games now. We have pulled together well to move us [up] the League table.”

Sons' squad are certainly determined to continue that kind of attitude going into the important home game against East Fife on 19 March 2011.
