CHANGES have taken place in the Dumbarton squad, with one player joining Clyde on loan and another moving the opposite way.

Club captain Ryan McGeever has joined the Bully Wee until the end of the season in a move which will see him get game time to continue his recovery from injury.

Making the reverse switch between the clubs is experienced defender Peter Grant (main picture), who becomes a Sons player on a similar loan deal until the end of the season.

Peter, who is the son of the ex-Celtic defender of the same name, will wear the number 19 shirt for Sons.

Dumbarton manager Stevie Farrell said: “Ryan’s (pictured above) situation is simple – he needs more game time than he has currently been getting at this time, primarily due to individual defensive performances to date.

“He is going on loan to play under a manager in Jim Duffy who he knows well, and I know from speaking with Jim he is keen to work with Ryan once again.

“We wish Ryan and Clyde best wishes between now and the end of the season.

“As for Peter, he is only 28 but has invaluable experience at every level in Scotland – including winning promotion from cinch League Two which he did with Queen’s Park only two years ago.

“So therefore, he has that experience which will be of huge benefit to add to the current group.

“Further, he has been playing regularly this season, and as such has arrived with us completely match fit, which is pleasing.

“I would like to thank Clyde and Jim for assisting in allowing this deal to be possible.”

Stevie added: “With the closure of this deal, we reckon our squad is now complete for the remainder of the season. We do not anticipate any further transfer business.”

Welcome to DFC Peter, and best of luck on loan at Clyde Ryan!
