Biography

The 2018-19 player of the year, Stuart Carswell, who was Sons captain in 2019-20, has signed on for a fourth season at Dumbarton.

Carsy came to Dumbarton midway through season 2016-17 after a spell playing for Kevlavik in Icelandic football, and quickly made a big impression with his skill in a defensive midfield role.

Previously he had been in opposition to Dumbarton with St Mirren, having started his career with Motherwell.

So far he has played 123 games for the club. He reached his century in the 3-1 win at home to Stranraer last August.

He has five goals to his name — the most recent being the unforgettable injury time winner at home to Raith Rovers in Sons last daytime home fixture in February.

Manager Jim Duffy said: "Stuart is a big player for us and was one we were keen to retain as soon as last season came to an end.

"I had no hesitation in making him team captain at the start of last season and that has added another dimension to his game.

"We're confident he'll continue to progress this season and play a true captain's role in what we hope will be a successful year."
