DUMBARTON enjoyed a good pre-season workout with an assured 4-0 victory over Vale of Leithen in Peebleshire tonight.

A double from Jordan Kirkpatrick with additional strikes from Colin Nish and Scott Taggart (pictured) made it a comfortable evening for Ian Murray’s new look side.

Sons went ahead after just four minutes, and were leading 3-0 at half-time. Much of the traffic was towards the home end, but Vale put up a spirited performance.

After the break Dumbarton gaffer Murray made a total of five changes over two shifts, trying out different players and combinations.

The fourth goal saw new boy Taggart claim his debut goal in a Sons shirt. Vale put some pressure on towards the end.

Next up is another away game on Saturday 5th July, this time against Edinburgh City FC.
