EAMONN BROPHY is proof that players don’t stop doing clubs favours when they leave.
The striker may not have rolled up at Dumbarton on loan had it not been for some words of wisdom from one of his team-mates at Hamilton.
Chris Turner may have left Sons in May to move to New Douglas Park – but had no hesitation in letting Eamonn know about the positives of a temporary move to G82.
And now with Dumbarton initially until December, Eamonn hopes to make the most of the chance to play first team football.
He said: “Chris said it was a great club and he really enjoyed his time here.
“He got games for Dumbarton, which helped him to push on, so hopefully that can work for me as well.
“I had the opportunity to go on loan. As Hamilton have been doing really well, my chances of first team football were going to be limited.
“I want to play as much football as I can and score as many goals as I can. Hopefully I can do both of those while I am here at Dumbarton.
“And I am also hopeful that this move can help me go back to Hamilton and get regular football.”
Eamonn made his Sons debut as a second half substitute in the 0-0 draw at Morton before making his first start in last week’s 2-1 defeat to Rangers.
Like everybody at the Rock, he has been frustrated by the lack of breaks in front of goal.
But he hopes that it will all change this Saturday when Sons visit Kirkcaldy to face Raith Rovers.
He added: “It was a tough game on Saturday but we matched Rangers and had the better chances. It was just a shame we lost concentration for the goals we conceded.
“We were excellent in the first half and if Garry Fleming’s header goes in then it’s a different story.
“We just have to keep working hard in training and it will change for us. We’ll keep plugging away and look forward to facing Raith.”
