Dumbarton United 2005 got back to winning ways at the weekend with an emphatic 6-2 win away to Johnstone Burgh.

After a disappointing 2-1 midweek defeat away to Westerton, the 2005 youngsters were determined to put that behind them in difficult conditions at Shanks Park.

Dumbarton showed their strength in midfield from the off and created a number of chances with Connor Hamill beating his man before finding Dominic Burns who remained composed to open the scoring.

Ryan Murray made the most of an error from the Burgh keeper to double United’s advantage before the home side did well to get a foothold in the match with Adam Daly keeping them at bay with some fine saves.

Daly could only do so much, however, as Burgh pulled one back but the visitors immediately got themselves back on the front foot with a stunning Leighton Morris effort from all of 30-yards finding the top corner to restore their two goal lead at the break.

A number of half-time changes saw the tempo of the match upped with man-of-the-match Sam Dalrymple working tirelessly to maintain his side’s dominance as they added a fourth thanks to a trademark Reece Beaton free-kick.

Burgh once again did well to get themselves back into it at 4-2 but Dumbarton raised their level again with Kristian Zetocha bagging two quickfire goals.

Elsewhere, Dumbarton United 2006 boys were impressive themselves as they cruised to a comfortable 5-2 win away to Stamperland on Saturday.

Fresh from a 5-2 win away to Drumchapel last Wednesday, the ruthless 2006 side found themselves 2-0 up after just 10 minutes before adding a third before the break.

Slack play after the restart allowed the hosts to pull one back but any hopes of a comeback were short-lived as the United youngsters added a fourth and a fifth moments later.

A makeshift Dumbarton defence conceded late on but it was already over with maximum points secured.
