DUMBARTON FC wishes to update our supporters on the status of Mark Lamont and David Hopkirk as members of our squad.
Mark rejoined the club on amateur terms in July and played as a substitute in our Premier Sports Cup tie against Partick Thistle.
However, his personal circumstances have since changed, making him unavailable for selection.
We have retained his listing among our squad as the door has been open for him to return, also on amateur terms, should his circumstances change again.
However, this has not happened to date and we do not expect Mark to return. He has therefore been removed from our squad.
Meanwhile, David is continuing to take a break from football, also due to personal circumstances, which has been the case since October.
He remains under contract with the club, but is not currently taking a wage. At the moment there is no confirmed date when David intends to return.
We wish both players well with their respective circumstances, and will continue to ensure the wellbeing of all our players and staff as a top priority.
