Dumbarton yesterday confirmed that Dimitrios Froxylias has signed a new contract, making him a Sons player until the end of the 2017/18 season.

The Greek-born Cypriot, nicknamed ‘Wee Jimmy’ by his teammates, initially joined the club until January on deadline day, and quickly became a fan favourite by scoring a last minute free-kick winner in injury time against Welsh side Connahs Quay Nomads in the Irn-Bru Cup.

After a series of impressive displays, as well as two more result defining goals against Brechin and Inverness Caley Thistle, ‘Wee Jimmy’ cemented his place in Dumbarton’s starting eleven and extending the contract became a priority for Sons boss Stevie Aitken.

Speaking to the club’s website, Aitken said: "We've managed to sort to a deal for Jimmy and both he and I are happy with the conclusion of the talks.

"Jimmy is a very good footballer. He is a young player with great natural ability and a good attitude towards continuing his development with us.”

The attacking midfielder, capped at uUnder-21 level for Cyprus, began his career at AEK Athens in Greece where he became the sides youngest ever player in a European fixture against Anderlecht in 2010.

Spells at several sides in the Cypriot and Greek First Divisions followed before Froxylias made the move to Scotland in Summer this year.

After a trial with Championship rivals Dunfermline proved to be unsuccessful, Aitken was on hand to give Froxy an opportunity with Dumbarton where he will play his football until summer 2018.
