Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

SONS SECURE CUP WIN

Saturday 13th July 2019

DUMBARTON began their 2019 Betfred Cup campaign with a 1-0 win away against Annan Athletic at Galabank.

Sons had more chances in the first period, but could not find a way through against their determined League Two opponents' defence. There were opportunities at both ends.

Annan began the second half more brightly, pressing forward and coming close from a brace of early corners.

Then Dumbarton started finding their way back into the game, with the trio of Stefan McCluskey, Ryan Tierney and PJ Crossan linking up well.

On 64 minutes Tierney, in his first competitive outing for the club, opened his Sons account. A really well taken goal (pictured) put the men from the Rock 1-0 in front.

Neither side could add to the score in the last 25 minutes. Next up for Sons is a trip to nearby Greenock to take on Morton in the next Betfred Cup group game.
