Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

DAVID HOPKIRK IS NEXT TO SIGN UP

Thursday 10th June 2021

STRIKER David Hopkirk has checked into Dumbarton today, arriving on a one-year deal after leaving League Two outfit Stenhousemuir.

The former Hamilton Accies youth player was around the clubs as a youngster, turning out for Hearts and Queen of the South as well as the Accies.

Annan Athletic was his next stop, and in total he hit 26 goals in 76 games for the Galabank side. This brought interest from Dunfermline Athletic, for whom he scored nine times in 69 games.

After a stint at Derry City, he returned to Scotland with Clyde and then Stenhousemuir, for whom he scored 11 goals in 53 games.

The Clydebank-born player, who is 28, left Ochilview during the close season and has now signed up with Sons.

Manager Stevie Farrell said: "David has shown on more than one occasion how dangerous and consistent a striker he can be.

"He's got a lot to offer us this season and we'll look forward to seeing him in a Dumbarton shirt."

Look out for an interview with David on the club website later today.
