I know you guys have been to Dumbarton before but just a wee reminder, the Rock BC is just 50yds by the stadium and we have Sky Sports in every room for the footy and you are more than welcome to come down for pre match drinks. Hope to see you on Saturday.

Alternatively, if you guys fancy some free, live music then make your way to the home end bar in the stadium (accessible through the home turnstiles) :P

Dumbarton publicans bartering business on the Forfar thread. Is this good or just sad?

Given that home fans have rarely ever been allowed in our home end bar I thought it was worth highlighting, I'll leave you to decide if it's good or sad :P

We have a new board and chairman and they like to try and be friendly and accommodating with fans these days, it's a nice change.

I'm afraid that's in Jim Weir's hands. Unlucky.

A wee question for you. My grandfather's family were from Forfar and there has always been the story in the family that one of his brothers played for The Loons.  Do you guys have a club history which includes all games, teams etc? If so, I'd be grateful if someone could check if Alec (or Alex) Glen who lived in Gallowshade,  played for Forfar in the 1920s or 1930s? I'd be interested to know if he did indeed play for the club.

According to fitbastats.com there was a Glen played for us in season 1922/23 and 1925/26. There is a question mark regarding his first name. I vaguely remember a Glen family in Gallowshade (I lived there until I was 10), I'll ask my mum at the weekend when I see her.

Thanks for that. The times would be about right.

Good chance for the fringe players to stake a claim for a first team spot tonight in the Tony Macaroni Stadium. The Manager and Treasurer will be demanding no slip ups. Let's get the job done.

Several hope we play as many fringe players as possible tonight. Zero interest in this competition and the squad is bare enough
This.

I actually forgot we were playing tonight.

Probably because that's all we have fit, hopefully they are chucked out the cup now, absolute joke of a franchise.

Couldn't agree more. Teams whose lights fail should be booted out the compet.....oh wait a minute!

Played off the park by Livi under 21's. We got away with one tonight.


Tonight is the worst thing that could’ve happened. 70mins in a needless competition, playing a strong line up....to then have to do it all again next week.

Just let livi through
