TEAM Dumbarton SEASON(S) 2006
HOME/AWAY Home COUNTRY Scotland
MANUFACTURER Vandanel

Many moons ago, when I was a kid I got a Panini sticker book which had all of the teams in the English first division and Scottish Premier League. The first sticker book I got (in 1985) had Dumbarton proudly playing in the Premier League. The club lie pretty lowly now and it seem almost bizarre to think that they played in the SPL especially given their dilapidated stadium Boghead, which on my last visit had a tree growing through the terracing and through the roof. These days they have a nice new stadium but the team's still rubbish. This shirt is not one of Vandanel's better efforts but the badge is well rendered. Does anyone know why "the Sons of the Rock" have what appears to be a Carthaginian war elephant on their badge?
