The home of Dumbarton FC in the shadow of the Rock has been renamed the C&G Systems Stadium following a new partnership agreement with a local firm involved in important rail projects across Scotland.

C&G Systems will become Dumbarton FC’s stadium sponsor for three years from today (Saturday 5th May), according to the club’s website.

The deal reflects the company’s commitment to community sport and a bright future for Scotland’s best part-time team, as well as its own growing reputation in planning, delivery, railway operations and engineering.

Dumbarton are currently fighting to stay in the SPFL Championship for a remarkable seventh season, having just been in the Challenge Cup Final — their first major final in 121 years.

C&G Systems managing director Dave Gordon said: “We are excited at this new partnership with Dumbarton FC. It’s our local team.

“Along with our commercial manager I was brought up in Dumbarton and live here. So there’s a strong community link and a shared desire to make an impact in our respective fields.

“In a spirit of partnership with the club and its supporters, we have redesigned our company branding to the colours of the Sons.

“To demonstrate our long-term commitment an confidence, we have also chosen to sponsor the club for three years, not just a year-on-year deal.”

Meanwhile, Dumbarton have since been knocked out of the play-offs and will be demoted to Scottish League 1. The following are the remainder of the Championship play-off fixtures with dates and TV coverage:
