  1. In the midst of all the squad news, just thought I'd post the latest news link re. new strips: https://www.dumbartonfootballclub.com/news/?mode=view&id=4516 Really sorry for this delay, but hope people will understand the situation. Our sponsors have been amazing, but it proved very difficult for Turnberry in the end, due to their commitments and the financial squeeze. We and they tried until the last hour to see if something could be worked out, but in the end it wasn't possible. They are still committed too DFC and we'll see them back in due course, I'm sure. Meantime we're cultivating new sponsors, as well as being massively grateful to existing ones - not least C&G Systems and Signs Express, who've been incredible. As soon as we can update on sponsor/delivery, we will. Obviously we want this sorted as quickly as possible, like you. Thanks a million to those who have pre-ordered. That really does help!
  2. Brief note to say that we know people have been waiting for an update on the new strips. We will be making an announcement as soon as we can!
  3. Quite a news day today. Watch this space (by which I mean the DFC website)...
  4. Full interview with Jim up on the DFC website: https://www.dumbartonfootballclub.com/news/?mode=view&id=4489 Also, Betfred Cup dates.
  5. The price will be adjusted, of course. Announcements will be made as soon as possible. (We've mentioned the 27 games in all the web articles on STs, and in various other ones, too.) The FAQ will be up shortly... just making sure we've got all the main questions covered. Cheers!
  6. We do try our best for you, but life can't always be perfectly scheduled!
  7. I picked up this was happening from pie and Bovril, but I didn't get an email... does anyone know if season ticket holders were mailed? Yes, an e-mail has gone to all season ticket holders (I double-checked tis morning) - and the pledge has been publicised on the Club website, on Twitter, on Facebook and on Instagram, as well as here. If there's any problem, please just drop a note to: [email protected] (Don't forget to check you e-mail spam file first, though!) Thanks for everyone who's made the pledge so far - incredible response! We're well on our way. 👏
  8. Thanks. No, the numbers didn't start at 1. I paid up a couple of minutes after posting the story on the website. But it has been initial great response. Around 120 last time I heard. We'll update... 👏
  9. If you used the link, a confirmation should be automatic. Worth checking your spam file! Any problem, drop a note to [email protected] (The response I got, instantly, looks like this.)
  10. Hi all... as you'll see, we've just launched the #SonsSeasonTicketPledge, with 100 days to go before the planned League One re-start. https://www.dumbartonfootballclub.com/news/?mode=view&id=4472 Until now, following questions from fans and our announcement back in May, we'd been holding STs for all existing holders and a few others who'd said they'd buy one when the restart happens. Now we're asking for what is in effect a £10 deposit. That will help the Club with the costs of preparation for 17th October. It's non-refundable, but will be dedicated from the cost of the ticket when the campaign starts. We obviously can't announce prices yet, but the hope and aim is to keep them in the same price bracket as before. Note that we can only release 300 tickets to start with, because we have to assume at this stage that if we are playing in front of fans (as we desperately want to), social distancing and health precautions will be required. The Sons Season Ticket Pledge is in response to all those (huge thank you!) who've said they'd like to help out. But, as before, we don't think it's right to take the full whack off people who are probably struggling with their own bills until everything is tied-up re. the new season. Cheers everyone!
  11. On kits... news coming as soon as possible. On digital Season Tickets. Noted. It's an idea worth investigating - and the costs involved, of course. Thanks. 👍 PS. The first batch of DFC face coverings going like hot cakes (though don't try one of those on yer face. Horribly messy.) More ordered... https://www.dumbartonfootballclub.com/news/?mode=view&id=4458
  12. We're in touch with Jim, of course, and both he and the club are positive about the future. But health needs to come first. 👍
  13. Thanks for all the good wishes for Jim. Really appreciated! 👍 https://www.dumbartonfootballclub.com/news/?mode=view&id=4454 And just in case the latest charitable donation to the game via the SPFL Trust leaves people thinking clubs like ours will be rolling in dosh 👉 https://www.dumbartonfootballclub.com/news/?mode=view&id=4455
  14. It looks like Jim is doing OK now, and is being well looked after, but obviously an event like this has significant ongoing health implications. Everyone at the Club wishes him and his family all the very best. https://www.dumbartonfootballclub.com/news/?mode=view&id=4450
  15. We're already thinking about it (very hard) at DFC, and in conversation with others. You'll hear more about this soon. But you are absolutely right to identify these huge challenges. No-one should pretend that this will be easy or quick... and the difficulty is magnified for smaller clubs. So we remain realistic, but also as positive as we possibly can be...
