We don’t know who in particular he was watching, but there were a number of very good players on show.
Whosoever it was -or were – Lennon wasn’t letting the cat out of the bag.
Indeed, he was keeping it under his bunnet, a smart eight-piece job made of tweed.
So what’s Lennon up to?

He has revealed he has turned down a number of opportunities to get back into management after his most recent spell in Cyprus.

The former Celtic boss was in charge of Omonia Nicosia, but he left the club in October and has been out of work since.

Last week Lennon was linked with the currently vacant Marseille job in France and he has now revealed that he has knocked back other proposals.

He told talkSPORT: “I only came back into the UK in April. I was away in Cyprus and did some media work but now I’m looking to get back in. It’s a competitive market so it’s just about being patient.

“I’ve been offered a couple of jobs already which I just felt weren’t right for me. At the same time I want to work. My best years are in front of me, I’m 52 this week and I still have a lot of coaching and drive in me. Hopefully the right project will come up for me in the not to distant future.

Sons unfortunately succumbed and went down 0-3 to Saints for their send pre-season defeat.
But there was much to look forward to when the new seasom officially gets underway.


Two goals in either half secured a comfortable result for Stevie Farrell’s side, who once again took the opportunity to experiment ahead of the new season.

Ross MacLean headed in the opener for Sons on the stroke of half-time with Ryan Blair curling in a free-kick in added time at the end of the first period.

After the break, substitute Declan Byrne nodded in from close range before 17-year-old Luca Vata scored his first goal for the club on 89 minutes.

The victory brings Dumbarton’s pre-season campaign to an end with the competitive action starting next weekend when Sons travel to Airdrieonians in the Viaplay Cup.

Bar 72 has become a popular hub for supporters, home and away, from the end of last season and even so already in our first couple of friendlies ahead of the new campaign.

The facilities have previously been run by external groups but we can reveal that a loyal Sons fan has taken on the running of the setup with all profits made set to go back into the club.

Jack Brough, who has plenty of experience in the hospitality trade, is leading the charge behind the bar and hopes that can it be another positive step forward for the club.

He said: “We’re really excited that Bar 72 is now being fully run by the club and hopefully it can be another way to bring in some income.

“Feedback in the early stages has been really promising, from home and away fans, and I’m happy with how it’s going so far.

“I’m always keen to hear from supporters, so if we don’t currently stock your favourite tipple or if there’s anything you think we could do differently on a match day then please let me know and I’ll see what we can do.

“We’re also looking for bar staff to join the team so if you are interested or have any questions then please get in touch.”

Shifts will be on a Saturday afternoon, though please note other functions will take place throughout the year.

This role is only suitable to those who are at least 18 years of age and whilst experience is preferred, it is not essential.
