Domestic Football Update

Our traditional first round exit in the – now renamed – Challenge Cup (its new name is the Petrofac Training Cup) will be to the same opponents who did for us last year, Stranraer.

Cup draw

How bizarre it is to see the names of Hearts and Hibs along with Rangers in this context.

Stranraer 4-2 Dumbarton

Scottish Challenge Cup, Round 1, Stair Park, 27/7/13.

And so it begins again….

I don’t know why we bother playing in this competition. Our record in it is beyond rank.

And we haven’t beaten Stranraer since November 2002. The previous win was ten years before that.

Cup Draws

Mixed fortunes in the two cup draws.

In the Challenge Cup we’re away to Stranraer on Jul 27th. That’s a bit far for me to travel I fear. Still it’ll only mean me missing our annual early dismissal from that trophy.

In the League Cup, it’s Albion Rovers at home on Aug 3rd. A chance to see former Sons in action again. (Three of them apparently.)
