Adam Frizzell admits he was delighted with his Dumbarton debut in last week’s win over Forfar – but has joked that the Sons support shouldn’t expect it every week.

The 21-year-old joined on loan from Kilmarnock at the end of September and got off to a flying start with two goals in the 3-1 victory.

Comparisons were immediately drawn between Frizzell and Dom Thomas, who was on loan at Dumbarton from the Ayrshire club last season.

Thomas went on to score 14 goals for the Sons, was nominated for League One Players’ Player of the Year and is now in the first-team fold at Killie after signing a new contract.

And Frizzell, who has enjoyed loan spells at Livingston and Queen of the South, got in touch with his Rugby Park teammate after hearing Jim Duffy was keen to add him to his squad.

He told Reporter Sport: “As soon as I heard there was interest I phoned Dom and he said it was a great club to go to.

“It gives me a platform to get back playing.

“I’m delighted to be here and get some game time.

“He calls it ‘Dombarton’. I think he’s a bit of a cult hero around here. I had one or two loan deals that didn’t work so I’m hoping to come here and show what I can do.

“I’ve not had regular game time at these places so if I can get that here then I can show people what I can do.

“I’m delighted with the debut.

“I don’t score often so to get two is a good start and that’s me set the standard.

“I hope you aren’t expecting two goals a week.”

Speaking after the Forfar match, Frizzell had only been at the club for a matter of days but admits he was left impressed by Duffy’s pre-match words of wisdom.

He added: “I’ve only had one session with him and then the Forfar game but he just told me to go and play and express myself.

“I feel that’s the best for me, not too much information just to go out and do your thing.”

The Sons Boss was also full of praise for his recent acquisition and was delighted with his immediate impact, just as Reghan Tumlity did in his first game after arriving from Morton.

And Duffy is delighted to have brought Frizzell to Dumbarton in a deal that he says works for all parties.

The gaffer said: “On Reghan’s debut he’s scored and on Adam’s debut he’s scored two.

“It was a terrific debut, there’s no doubt about that.

“For Adam it’s great to get playing and to get first-team games - that’s what he’s here for.

“It’s good for players because they get competitive first-team games and we get good players in the squad.”

With no fixture at the weekend due to the Scottish Challenge Cup, Dumbarton are back in action this Saturday when they travel down to Stair Park to face Stranraer.
