DUMBARTON have completed a one-year deal for winger Ally Love, who joins the club after leaving Clyde at the end of last season.
Aged 30, Ally has two promotions from League Two on his CV already, the first being in 2015 when he was part of the Albion Rovers side which won the championship.
Three years later, he helped Clyde to make the step up to League One through the playoffs.
In between those two successes, Ally was also part of the Brechin City squad promoted to the Championship in 2017.
Seven goals in 35 games was his return for Clyde last season before he left the club after four and a half seasons there.
Manager Stevie Farrell said: “Ally is a player I have been keen to have in my squad for a while, during my times in charge of Stranraer and Dumbarton.
“He is a proven player at this level and is a player capable of doing some very positive stuff. We look forward to seeing him play for us.”
Meanwhile, David Wilson, who was part of the Dumbarton squad which reached the 2018 Challenge Cup final, has today returned to the club on a one-year deal.
David joined us initially from Partick Thistle in the 2017 close season, and went on to play 32 games, the majority in that season’s Championship.
He scored one goal – his equaliser against Connah’s Quay Nomads which secured extra time in the Challenge Cup second round tie, later won by Sons in extra time.
David moved on to Annan Athletic at the end of the season, and has since also turned out for Stirling Albion and Albion Rovers.
Last season he played 40 games for Rovers, scoring five goals.
Manager Stevie Farrell said: “David operated under me at Stranraer, on loan from Partick, before he came to Dumbarton the first time around.
“He has made steady progress as a player since then and we feel he is a player with a lot to offer us.”
