SUPPORTERS young and old combined to tidy up the C&G Systems Stadium at the weekend.
Held on one of the hottest weekends of the year, 30 volunteers, plus a devoted organising team, toiled away at the C&G Systems Stadium, rather than basking in the sunshine elsewhere or enjoying a summer day out.
“This shows the community spirit we’ve got here and it saves the club a lot of money”, said Chairman John Steele.
That was the verdict after Sontrust members chipped in to help spruce up the C&G Systems Stadium on Saturday and Sunday.
A wide variety of jobs were completed, including cleaning seats, weeding and cleaning the running track at the stand side and internal works that meant the community suite received a much needed freshen up of the walls.
The club sincerely thanks all of those volunteers for their efforts at the weekend, people of all ages combining for a great team effort during two scorching days at Dumbarton FC.
Trust member Jordan Brownlee, who was project manager for the weekend, added: ” Whether people came along for an hour to pull up some weeds or turn up for the two days, we truly appreciate it.
“This weekend shows what a great spirit we have at this club. Volunteers do a variety of different jobs for free throughout the year to help out and it means that more funds can go towards the playing budget.”
Paul McDonald who took part in the work weekend added: “The club is in a different phase now and our fans are getting involved. It’s great. We all do it for the love of the club.
“Everyone is working together to get the stadium ready to play the matches and I’m looking forward to the new season.”
