Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872
Tuesday 8th June 2010
JIM Chapman took his close season signings into double figures with the capture of goalkeeper Stephen Grindlay on a 1-year deal.
Grindlay began his career as a youth player for Celtic before being picked up by Newcastle United.
He was primarily in the youth system, however he did make one appearance in a friendly match with the first team against Berwick Rangers when he was 19. He left and had a spell with Grimsby Town.
Stephen made 169 appearances for Sons before leaving in 2007.
During his first spell at SHS, he set a few records along the way.
In 2004 he won the Dick Jackson Memorial Shield, an award given to players by supporters for being the best young player at the club.
On 7 April 2007 he kept his 15th clean sheet of the season, breaking a record set back during the 1991–92 season.
He joined QOS after leaving Sons in 2007 before joining Ayr United where he made 43 appearances in a team that won promotion to division one in season 2008/09.
Stephen is pictured below concluding the deal with gaffer Chapman.
