New name for Sons' stadium

Dumbarton in action against Cowdenbeath
Marching down to the Strathclyde Homes Stadium. It's hardly the stuff of inspiring football chants, but Dumbarton fans will have to get used to the name of the newly built home for their favourites.

The stadium, which is located in the impressive shadow of Dumbarton Castle, will host its first match when Elgin City visit on December 2.

Strathclyde Homes founder and managing director John O'Neill said: "We have paid a lot of money to secure the stadium name and as far as we are concerned it is money well spent."

The club were previously based at Boghead, which had been their home for 120 years. This season The Sons have been sharing Cliftonhill with Albion Rovers.

Dumbarton currently lie at the bottom of Division Three with a meagre tally of just four points from 12 games and will be hoping that a move to a new home will bring a change in their fortunes.
