Episode 48: Michael Dunlop (Part Two)

The second installment of Michael Dunlop’s Pelé Podcast sees the defender looking back over the middle part of his career, from his two years at Dumbarton to his season at Stranraer.

Speaking with Craig G Telfer, Mick begins by talking about his blockbuster first season at the Rock, which saw the Sons lift the 2008/09 Third Division title. He then discusses the untimely passing of Gordon Lennon and the difficult circumstances in which he accepted the captaincy. Mick concludes this chapter by reflecting on how the team consolidated their Second Division status the following year and his disappointing departure.

He then looks back on his disastrous year at Alloa Athletic, one that saw the team – favourites for promotion at the beginning of the campaign – slide down the table, into ninth place, and then out of the division altogether; even now he cannot explain what happened.

Mick then finishes by looking at the “wilderness years” of his career – his mediocre year at Brechin City and his 12 months at Stranraer.
