Graham hangs up his boots
Former Sons skipper Andy Graham announced the end of his Sons career at the weekend after spending three and a half seasons at the club.
Andy started his career at Stirling Albion in 2005 and made his senior debut in July 2005 against Ayr United.
He later joined Hamilton Accies for the 2010/11 season, signing a one-year contract.
Next he signed for the club he supports – Greenock Morton – before finally landing at the Rock.
The 34-year-old signed up with the Sons on a one- year deal in 2012 and went on to become team captain.
He played a major part in helping the Dumbarton side finish seventh in the first division and in May 2013 he signed a new one-year deal to carry on his career at Dumbarton FC.
He was equally consistent in the SPFL Championship in 2013/14, making 42 appearances and scoring two goals.
An outstanding year followed and the defender became a fans’ favourite with six Baxter Ramsay player of the month nominations.
He also was chosen as the players’ player of the season in addition to being voted the fans choice as their player of the year.
In June this year, he was the second of the current squad to sign a one-year contract following the arrival of new boss Stevie Aitken.
He handed over his title of captain in July this year when former Falkirk defender Darren Barr joined the Sons, but Graham still made appearances on the pitch against Hibs and St Mirren before announcing his departure on Saturday (August 22).
Manager Stevie Aitken said:“Andy and I came to an agreement on his DFC career, and I’d like to wish him all the very best for the future.”
