Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

Dumbarton (2) v Airdrie 20s (3)

Monday 22nd September 2014, Kick Off

SPFL Development League

FOLLOWING their first point of the season away against Queen of the South, Dumbarton were looking to begin to turn around a difficult start to their campaign against Airdrieonians.

At one point it looked as though they might snatch a draw. But in the end it was not to be.

In a goal fest of a first half, Sons trailed 3-2 with goals from Whitefield on 30 minutes and Hopkins a minute before the break.

The second half, somewhat predictably, remained scoreless and Airdrieonians took the points.

However, against the unbeaten top side in the division, Sons battled hard and nearly grabbed their reward.

Sons lined up: Lumsden, Martin, Hainey, Lightbody, C McCallum, Smith, McIntyre, Pearson, Whitefield, Hopkins (Biddulph), D McCallum. Subs: Adger, Cook, Bonner, Clark, Kelly.
