Hearts starlet Ally Roy joins Dumbarton on loan



DUMBARTON have snapped up highly-rated Hearts kid Ally Roy on loan.

The 20-year-old, who recently penned a new two-year contract with the Jambos, has joined the Sons until January.

Roy spent last season at League 1 strugglers Stenhousemuir, where he scored three goals in 15 starts but was unable to stop them succumbing to relegation to the bottom tier of the SPFL.

He also scored four goals during a six-month stint with East Stirlingshire during the 2015/16 campaign

Roy made a quick-fire debut for the Sons in their 3-1 defeat against Ayr United on Tuesday, entering the fray after 55 minutes – just hours after penning his deal.
