Dumbarton Football Club continued their 150th anniversary celebrations by paying tribute to players of yesteryear with a hall of fame induction ceremony.

Nearly 200 people gathered in the 1872 Bar at the Dumbarton Football Stadium on Friday evening, February 24, to see their heroes etched into the history books at the club.

Players from championship winning squads in 1992 and 2009 were inducted alongside players who gained promotion to the top flight, or played there, between 1983 and 1985 as well as other icons who have turned out in the famous black and gold.

The likes of John Bourke and Charlie Gibson were involved for long-term supporters with appearances from names such as Craig Brittain and Stevie Murray present for the younger audience.

The family of the captain of the 2009 title-winning side were also there as they accepted a certificate on behalf of Gordon Lennon, who passed away just months after Sons won the league title that season.
