This is former Dumbarton full back, and my friend Craig Brittain scoring for Beith against Pollok on Saturday.
It has been my pleasure over the last 15 months or so to have been Chairman of Craig Brittain's Testimonial Committee. Craig signed as a player for Dumbarton in 1997 and I felt in these days where players at all levels stay for a short spell at one club (sometimes as little as ONE SEASON) before moving on for another signing on fee, his loyalty should be rewarded. Anyone who has seen Craig play will acknowledge that he could have played at a higher level than he has for Sons. I assembled a committe for the purpose and we organised several events including a Testimonial Match v. a Rangers X1, a Testimonial Dinner and a Golf Tournament. The support I received from my fellow committee members, Dumbarton supporters and a whole host of companies and sponsors has been magnificent. We have now closed the fund and the total profit raised and ready to be paid to Craig can be revealed by Clicking Here
Good luck to Craig, his lovely wife Claire and wee daughter Cayla. You deserve your reward and I'm delighted that thanks to the way so many people have responded it is a significant one.
I'm pleased to say that Craig has signed for another season with Dumbarton and is guaranteed to be celebrating the Sons elevation to the dizzy heights of the second division at the end of the season!
Gaun' Yersel' Wee Man!
