Dumbarton United 2005s clinched runners-up spot at West Park United’s Easter Tournament in Bishopbriggs at the weekend, coming through three tough matches and a play-off final in the searing heat.

The only team representing the Paisley and Johnstone District Youth Football League, the 2005s did well in the eight-team contest.

An impressive 5-1 opening win against the hosts was followed by a narrow loss against pre-tournament favourites Summerston before a draw with Celtic Boys Club. 

A win, a draw and a narrow loss was enough for the 2005s to book their spot in the play-off final against Maryhill.
