Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

Youth News

As West Dunbartonshire's only professional senior football club, Dumbarton FC see youth football as a very necessary platform in developing the first team players of the future.

DFC has a long and proud history and we have a firm belief that we have a responsibility to nurture and develop talent from an early age.

Our first team relies on the firm foundation that a vibrant youth policy can bring and we now proudly boast development teams starting at u-13 through to u-17 level.

The youngsters who turn out for Dumbarton are the building blocks of the club's future.

We have a talented set of coaches who are nurturing and developing our young players and without these individuals giving up their evenings and weekends, the Club's ambitious YDI project would not be possible.

In the pages that follow, under this 'micro-site' (navigation links on the left column) we hope to bring you a flavour of what we are doing at Dumbarton FC that will secure the playing future of the Club.
