The 2018-19 player of the year, Stuart Carswell, who was Sons captain for the past two seasons, has signed on for fifth and sixth seasons at Dumbarton, making him the club's longest serving player.

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.

His first game for the club in the new season will be his 150th in all competitions, making him only the 68th player to reach that milestone.

His previous 149 games have seen him score five goals, the most recent of which was the injury time winner against Raith Rovers in February 2020.

Manager Stevie Farrell said: "There was no doubt in my mind that Stuart was one of the players I wanted to retain when I came to the club.

"He initially arrived at Dumbarton only a few weeks before I left to become Stranraer manager. His consistency since then shows what a popular and important player he is here."
