'Jim Meechan' doesn't look like the Jim Meechan I remember.

Nice to see Robert Docherty facing forwards.

I was wondering the same.  However, at the back of my mind there might have been another, earlier Mk1 Jim Meechan? Or am I talking nonsense?

As an aside, even the mighty Spall made gold shirts rather than yellow. Nice simple red away kit too.

That Jim Meechan was a (very mediocre) left back, different guy entirely.

So Peter Wharton kept him out of the team!

I don't think their times at Boghead overlapped greatly (see what I did there ?) but Wharton was definitely the better player, and a right hard b*****d when required. Wee Joe Miller departing Parkhead early in a cup-tie was a glorious example of his discreet thuggery.

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!

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.)

Did the order numbers start at 001? If they did then I was #202 when I paid for mine at 10 to 1 which is a fantastic effort.

I like the idea. It makes a lot of sense given the unpredictability and gives the fans another target to try and smash. Hopefully we can build on the 300 total and get a really strong number of season tickets sold this year.

I'm having trouble with it. Won't accept any of the delivery addresses I'm putting in.

I had same issue. Ended up using phone rather than laptop and it seemed to work OK.

No, as far as I'm aware Emeka Obidile is still missing.

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... 👏

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?
