DEFENDER Mark Docherty today completed the formalities on a season long contract to join Dumbarton from Alloa Athletic.
Manager Aitken has again raided our Championship rivals to snap up 27-year old Mark having previously signed Kevin Cawley.
And it’s also a reunion with Sons management team as Mark played at Stranraer under Aitken and Farrell during the 2013/2014 season; a campaign that saw him win player of the year.
A former boxer, Docherty gave up his fighting career to join St Mirren in 2008 and he remained at the Buddies for 3 seasons before spells at Montrose (loan), Stirling Albion, Brechin City, Annan Athletic and two stints at the Wasps (plus his year at Stair Park).
He becomes our fifth new arrival of the summer, following Gregor Buchanan, Grant Gallagher, Kevin Cawley and Darren Miller into the Dumbarton Football Stadium.
Last season Mark scored two goals for Alloa Ath, helping them remain in the Championship with 30 appearances.
