Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872


Friday 25th January 2019

DEFENDER David Ferguson has joined Dumbarton on loan from Ayr United until the end of the season, subject to paperwork being completed.

The 22-year-old started his career with Motherwell before joining the Honest Men in 2017.

But he is not entirely unfamiliar with wearing the Sons colours, as he played in the pre-season friendly with Hearts as a trialist. In the end he rejoined Ayr.

Manager Jim Duffy said: "It is absolutely no secret that we need to add to our squad and I'm pleased to bring David on board to do that. He will do a job for us."

The boss also revealed that injury cost him the chance to bring a familiar face back to the C&G Systems Stadium.

He said: "We had everything in place for a deal for Sam Wardrop to return to the club for the rest of the season.

"But the player then sustained an injury. It is a real shame for the club and the player, who we wish well in his recovery.

"As a club, we will look to continue to move forward."
