Dumbarton away for a night in Aberdeen before the match tomorrow. I don’t think it’s anything to do with respect for the dons. It’s big Colin Nish’s birthday today and they’ll be having a party. :mrgreen:

With regard to the chat about wee Barry being the next St. Mirren Manager…
As a Dumbarton supporter, please can I propose, second and vote with both hands in favour of this.

There can’t be a better appointment.21

LNS – A Summary
Maybe the SFA should learn that their much utilised discretion, is by definition, the root of most of the uncertainty that they wish to clear up.

The Case for a New SFA.
Yes, a good night at Perth last night. Well done to Big Pink for the organisation and to St. Johnstone for their hospitality.
Lots of food for thought.
One highlight though had to be the debunking of a certain SFM poster’s fantasy when it was revealed to him that the dream of his teenage years, Sally Carr of Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep fame, had been married to Chick Young. lol
I only spoke to (and identified) a few of you, but I was the guy sitting in the back row beside Jim Craig.

Where are Renton now?


Renton were expelled from the league before a ball was kicked.

The initial number of entrants for the 1890/91 season was eleven, but Renton to their shame were expelled before the competition, found guilty of professionalism by association. The SFA still forbade professionalism although by now it was accepted in England, and on finding St. Bernards guilty of paying a player named John Ross, suspended them from playing any fixtures. The Edinburgh side disbanded and reformed as Edinburgh Saints in the hope of dodging the ban, but the authorities extended the ban to the new club as the players and committee were unaltered. Renton either ignored the ban or, as they claimed, knew nothing of its existence and fulfilled a fixture against the banned club. The SFA and Scottish League found Renton guilty of breaking the ban and subsequently expelled them from all competitions under their auspices.
