Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

BURNS SUPPER SUCCESS

Tuesday 4th February 2020

THE Sons Supporters Trust's fundraising Burns Supper was a fantastic success on Friday night - so much so that plans are already underway for 2021.

With DFC chairman John Steele at the helm as master of ceremonies, those in attendance were treated to a rapturously-received address to the haggis by Sons fan Jack Brough.

A fantastic meal was then served up by stadium caterers Revolution Catering and Events, before Graham Hill delivered the Immortal Memory of Scotland's national bard.

Another Dumbarton supporter, David Carson, delivered the toast to the lassies, with the reply coming from Glasgow primary school head teacher Helen Gillan.

The Midges provided excellent musical entertainment during the evening, while poetry recitals came from DFC poet in residence Stephen Watt and Andrew Galloway, who recited Tam o' Shanter.

David also delivered another humorous speech later in the evening, entitled 'Ae Phoned Kiss'.

Andrew said: "The evening could not have gone much better.

"All of our speakers and performers were superb and we could not have made the event such a success without them.

"We also can't speak highly enough of the job that the caterers and their staff did for us in advance of the event, as well as on the night itself. They really did do magnificently.

"We are making progress with next year's event already and once everything is confirmed, we will have the details online.

"One thing we can confirm is the date - Friday, January 29 2021. Get that date in your calendars now!"
