    Was that a one off payment however? Because if that was the case what under 16 year old do you know with £95 laying about haha, Imo dropping down to league one would not be devasting, if dumbarton are to take an overall look at the state of the clubs transfers and outgoings they are going from free agents to free agents which are demanding a lot of cash for pretty minimal work rate. If we did go down we could cut many of these wages and move to a more slim line first team with more youth playing like Kieran prior etc and if we saved enough dough on the wages there could be an opportunity to set up an under 21s team which would be give us something to fall back on if injuries and suspensions occur instead of getting emergency loans like Aidan Wilson for example. When it comes to ticket prices we would need to drop our prices to compete with other league one teams such as Alloa who charge £16 for an adult and raith rovers who charge £15 so if we were to drop to £15 it could attract more people in as they would be saving a fiver which they could then spend on food from the kiosks. The club needs to look into ways of how they can attract younger fans due to the fact the majority of dumbarton fans are over the age of 40, the atmosphere needs to be discussed( good atmosphere= more fans) young fans don’t want to sit on their hands twirling there thumbs watching football and activities which can be set up for the young kids.

    Has anyone ever questioned the board why they are scamming the youth of the local area in expecting them to pay £12 for under 16s ticket to watch a mediocre team getting destroyed (most of the time) which from personal experience this season know I cannot to pay often yet travelled to QOS and livi and they only charge £5 for under 16s which is very reasonable and can compete in this league.

    Alright boys, this seems a bit arrogant considering the talk of the clubs finances here, but would yous personally say there’s a gap in the fans market for better styled and cheap merchandise eg scarves and hats which the profit from this money would go straight back into dumbarton through sons trust membership and creating atmosphere through expensive but intricate looking flags and banners?
