Dumbarton manager Stevie Farrell hailed the commitment of new signing Joshua Oyinsan as he marked his debut with a goal in his side’s 2-0 win over East Fife on Saturday.

The six foot five striker joined the club from National League South club Eastbourne Borough during the week and has penned a deal at The Rock until the end of the season.

He went straight into the starting line-up for Saturday’s clash with the bottom-of-the-league Fifers and got the scoring under way 10 minutes into the second period.

That strike was soon followed by a stunning second goal by Gregg Wylde, who was also making his debut as a fully signed Dumbarton player after appearing as a trialist against Falkirk.

Faz’s troops moved eight points clear of Saturday’s opponents at the foot of the table as a result of Saturday’s victory – but he says there’s still plenty of work to be done.

Speaking after the win, he said: “The boys were excellent and I thought we thoroughly deserved it.

“We had to get back to being really hard to beat, and we shaped up that way. It’s a good result, but it’s nothing more than that, and I’m not getting carried away.

“Big Josh only had half a session on Thursday night. He drove up here on Thursday for six and a half hours for training, so there’s something about him. It’s not just about the football player, it’s about the man.

“He was a fans’ favourite in the first five minutes when he took it in and brushed somebody off and gave it back.

“The goalkeeper should maybe do better with his goal, but he’s up with a purpose and heads it with a purpose. He’s going to be a good addition.”

Farrell is also keen to complete a deal for former Edinburgh City man Stephen Bronsky, who featured as a trialist beside Gregor Buchanan in defence on Saturday.

The centre-half has since been released by his former club, and the Dumbarton boss hopes he isn’t the only new face in the door this week.

He explained: “I thought Gregor and Stephen showed the early signs of a really good partnership.

“I had Stephen in my office on Friday and he’ll probably be back in my office on Monday to sign the papers.

“He is very keen to come to the club so we’ll hopefully get him in over the next couple of days and hopefully another one from a Premier League club.

“We’ve brought three or four in and we’re looking to add another one or two.

“Nobody will leave the football club until we’re right and ready to make sure we have replacements.”
