BILLY Lamont is back in charge of Dumbarton. His appointment comes just four days after he was sacked by Falkirk and after the dismissal yesterday of Jim George at Boghead.

Lamont will bring with him as his assistant Billy Simpson, who has now left Alloa, and it means that the management team who took Dumbarton to the premier division in season 1983-84 are now back in control.

George was naturally disappointed by his dismissal but Dumbarton see Lamont as an ''astute manager'' and wanted him in position to assess the playing staff before next season.

The new manager will be in charge of the Dumbarton team tonight against Arbroath, who sacked John Young as manager on Saturday.
