DUMBARTON FC is “taking the next steps in creating a more engaged, outward-looking, community club”, said vice chairman Colin Hosie this week, as the announcement was made of new advisers appointed by the board of directors.
Andy Gordon (Commercial Director of rail engineering company C&G Systems), Graham Casey (Managing Director of Signs Express Glasgow), and Simon Barrow (club press officer and supporters’ spokesperson) are the three newly designated Associate Directors for the Sons.
All have a strong existing involvement with the club, with C&G being stadium sponsors and Signs Express supporting the programme and match day filming.
The appointments are honorary rather than statutory, and are part of wider developments aimed to “strengthen our operation commercially and in terms of community reach,” club chairman John Steele, says.
“Equally important are the many skilled volunteers who are helping on the operational side – including Robbi Docherty and Stephanie Park, who have taken up roles to bring in match day and activity sponsorship,” he added.
“We will also shortly be announcing our new Ambassador programme to help Dumbarton find further ways to boost support and to affirm the incredible work our fans already do to keep the club moving forward. Teamwork is what will give us a positive future”
