BREAKING NEWS: MANAGER AGREES TERMS

Wednesday 24th May 2017

DUMBARTON FC are delighted to announce that Stevie Aitken has today agreed a new two-year deal to continue as first-team manager.

Terms have been finalised, and the Board of Directors are thrilled to reach a successful conclusion to the talks which have taken place.

Stevie will immediately begin the process of building a first-team squad which it is hoped will keep the club in the Championship for a sixth consecutive season, the third under his management.

An announcement will be made on the future of assistant manager Ian Durrant in due course.

Chairman Les Hope said: "The fact that Stevie has kept us in the Championship for two seasons speaks volumes about his ability at this level and we are delighted to retain his services.

"We are absolutely confident that we can repeat our successes of previous seasons in the 2017/18 campaign and it is a real boost to have him back on board.

"He is very much up for the challenge of a third season in charge, and the Board of Directors will back him in pursuit of our goal."

Reaction from Stevie to follow.
