Profile

Iain finished top scorer at The Rock in his first two seasons with the club following a successful loan period and despite Dumbarton's relegation to Division three in 05/06, he also netted another nine goals.

Previously on an "S" Form, he signed for Rangers as a professional in 1999 aged 16 and was at Ibrox for 3 years before joining Motherwell in 2002 where he made several first team appearances. However, it was following his move to Dumbarton that his career took off and his pace and eye for goal is a real asset to City.

Iain had a fantastic first season with the club, scoring 23 goals in all competitions and he scooped up the prestigious SPFA players player of the year for the second division whilst being named in the Division's team of the year. He also picked up the Supporter's player of the year.
