PATCH MOVES ON

Sunday 27th January 2013

POPULAR striker Pat Walker has left the Club by mutual consent.

Patch, as he is known, became Dumbarton’s first signing of 2011 in January after a trial period.

After being signed for Albion Rovers by then manager Jim Chapman in 2006 from Ayrshire junior club Lugar Boswell Thistle, Pat had two spells at Cliftonhill interrupted by a period of travelling to countries including Argentina, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand and China.

He spent the first four months of the 2010-11 season at Annan Athletic, but found that the travelling did not fit in with his work. In May 2011 he signed for Sons for season 2011-12, and in May 2012 he signed a one year contract extension.

A big favourite of the Sons fans, he was the winner of the Sonstrust’s Travel Section’s 2011-12 player of the year award.

Manager Ian Murray said : “We’ve agreed terms with Pat to terminate his contract and we wish him well for the future.”
