Dumbarton 0-1 St Mirren U21

Scottish Challenge Cup,* The Rock, 13/8/19.

So. Humiliation as predicted.

This surely beats even losing to Bonnyrigg Rose for a terrible result.

This Sons team could be about the worst we’ve ever had and the players’ heads must be seriously down. Goodness knows how we can turn the season round. It’ll be some miracle if we do. I am seriously depressed.

I’ve been planning on going to Peterhead on Saturday ever since the fixtures came out. I doubt I will enjoy the experience.

*One consolation. I’ll not need to call this the Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup again, this season at least.

Falkirk 6-0 Dumbarton

SPFL Tier 3, Falkirk Stadium, 10/8/19.

Two games in, two defeats, no goals scored, seven conceded.

That’s a good start isn’t it?

Looks like Sons’ fans fears for the league season were well founded.

Tuesday night’s game at the Rock against St Mirren under 21s in the Challenge Cup* could be another humiliation.

What Peterhead will do to us at their place next Saturday also doesn’t bear thinking about.

Right now I’m even wondering if we will outdo (underdo?) Brechin’s record low points total of two seasons ago.

It’s the hope that kills you.

*Now the Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup

Challenge Cup 2019-2020

Sons’ opponents in the new season’s Challenge Cup* will be either St Mirren Colts or East Kilbride, who play against each other the previous week for the privilege of meeting us.

At least it’s a home game for us, but given our record in this competition under its various names – season 2017-2018 notwithstanding – it will most likely be the only one.

*Now apparently sponsored by Tunnock’s Caramel Wafer.
