    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

Just Champion!

I can’t really describe yesterday in words, so these pictures will have to do. (click on any photo to enlarge).

I couldn’t get much action from the game because I didn’t have a zoom lens, only a wee digital compact and a phone.

The game was almost incidental as the championship was all but secured last week.

However we completed the job in style winning 3-1.

The return to Dumbarton and the team in an open topped bus coming down Castle Road with so many turning out to welcome them home was unforgettable.

Come on the Sons!

  1. Fantastic stuff – well done to the Sons

  2. Ditto! Great to see that the sun came out for the parade. I hope it is onwards and upwards from here.

  3. I e-mailed Annan to thank them for the way they conducted themselves and made us most welcome and I would ancourage more fans to do the same

  4. Good idea Campbell. I’ve just emailed their local paper too. The Annan folk were different class!

  5. I think great credit is due to former Chairman Douglas Dalgleish.

    If he hadn’t buggered off none of this would have happened.

  6. Fantastic day, memories that will live with us forever

    Well done Annan for being so hospitable.

    Mon the sons

  7. Brilliant.

    Shame I couldn’t be there to enjoy the day with you.

    A couple more years and we’ll be planning a trip to the Nou Camp!

  8. […] Gordon’s example and do something useful? Alternatively you could just join Big Rab and celebrate the championship (that’s assuming you’re supporting Dumbarton though). Alternatively just wait until […]
