BUSY DAY AT THE BET BUTLER STADIUM

Saturday 11th May 2013

THE Bet Butler Stadium was buzzing today with the Dunbartonshire Football Development League finals taking place and manager Ian Murray was busy with squad movements.

Kicking off the day at 11am was the under-14s DFDL final between Goldenhill BC and Helensburgh BC with both teams competing for the Michael McGinlay Plate.

In an exciting match, Goldenhill won 3-2 in front of a noisy crowd.

In the afternoon, the U-16s trophy was contested between Lochgilphead Red Star and Kilpatrick.

With the game locked at 1-1 and extra time looking inevitable, the Argyll and Bute side dramatically sealed the game with minutes remaining to lift the trophy.

And in between matches, Scott Agnew renewed his contract and agreed another 1-year deal to remain at DFC for season 2013/14.

In other news, striker Jim Lister posted on Twitter that his time as Dumbarton player had come to an end, as he revealed he would be leaving.

He said: “Thank you all for everything all season. My family and I have had a great season and I wish Dumbarton all the best in the future.”

It’s understood that he will be signing for Second Division side Airdrie United.

Lister was a popular figure during his brief spell at the club, with supporters voting him as their player of the season at last weekend’s Party at the Rock, where he picked up a total of three awards.
