A NUMBER of volunteers attended the C&G Systems Stadium today to give their time to helping clean up several areas of the ground.

It has been more than four months since Dumbarton played at the stadium, or even played at all, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

But that made our supporters more eager to make their first trip down Castle Road in that time and help get the stadium back into shape.

With several tasks to be performed, sleeves were rolled up and a good day’s work was done.

In no particular order, huge thanks are extended to:

– Andrew Brown for stair painting
– Scott Adams for kiosk painting
– Stuart and Kevin for cleaning the dugouts, cushions and tunnel area and moving tables and chairs in Bar 72
– Cameron Russell and Paul Hettmann for cleaning away end seats
– Liam Meehan for assisting Denise Currie sorting through old kit in the club shop
– Cameron McIlroy for going round the track and tidying up rubbish
– Gordon McGhee for painting the goalposts

Sons’ general manager Antonia Love said: “This was the first session we had lined up for during the extended close season and we’re very pleased with the response.

“All of those who came along can be delighted with their hard work. Although the league kick-off is three months away, we need to ensure the stadium remains in good nick.

“There will be further cleanup sessions over the weeks to come and any assistance that can be offered is welcome.”

The next session is next Thursday, July 23. Anybody interested in helping out can contact Antonia on 01389 762569 or
