DUMBARTON have completed the permanent signing of Sam Wardrop on a one-year deal, giving the right back a third spell with the club.
This will be the 22-year-old’s first time as a fully-signed Sons player, having initially come to the club on loan from Celtic in 2017.
That stay was curtailed by injury, but he then signed for Dundee United and finished last season on loan to Dumbarton from the Tannadice club.
Having been released by United, he now becomes a Sons player on a permanent basis for the 2020/21 season.
In total, he has played 34 games for the club, scoring one goal – the winner against Inverness CT in September 2017.
Sam is currently outside the UK and so has not been able to get to the C&G Systems Stadium. However, all his paperwork has been completed electronically and he is officially a Dumbarton player!
Manager Jim Duffy said: “This is a brilliant signing which we are delighted to make.
“Alongside the retention of Morgyn Neill, Ryan McGeever and Rico Quitongo, it means we have retained all of what was our first choice back four before lockdown.
“Sam has shown in two divisions with Dumbarton what ability he has and we can’t wait to see more of that next season.”
