Leeds United academy graduate Eoghan Stokes has joined Dumbarton on a one-year deal following his exit from fellow Scottish League One side Airdrieonians.

Stokes started his career at Leeds United and made a few first-team appearances before leaving in 2018 for Irish side Bohemians. Portuguese outfit Boavista were once interested but he has since played for Derry City, Cork City and most recently Airdrie last season. The attacker made 14 appearances with no goals.

New Dumbarton boss Stevie Farrell has made the Leeds United academy graduate his latest signing, Andy Geggan, Callum Erskine, Paddy Boyle and Conner Duthie all signing up for the 2021/22 term while club captain Stuart Carswell has signed a new deal.

Farrell said of Stokes: “Eoghan is a talented player with the potential to do really well for us. When we made contact, he was really keen to join us. His style of play fits in with our plans for Dumbarton going forward and we’re looking forward to seeing what he can do in our jersey.”
