DUNDONALD Bluebell have made the big leap to leave the junior arena and join the East of Scotland League revolution.

Bluebell made their debut at Super League level two seasons and enjoyed an excellent campaign by posting a sixth-place finish and last season they did even better and moved up one place. 

Boss Jason Dair will be keen to build on that and he has recruited a number of players including Sean O'Neil from Kelty Hearts, former senior player, Mikey Dunlop and ex-Cowdenbeath midfielder Brian Ross. 

This has been a highly successful decade so far for the Moorside Park outfit, having won promotion to the Premier Division in 2014 while also reaching the Junior Cup quarter-finals for the first time, only losing out to eventual winners Hurlford United, then promotion to the Super League. 

Now the aim is to establish themselves in the senior ranks and look to win a place in the Lowland League.

Formed in 1938, Bluebell operated with considerable success as first-class juveniles during their first seven seasons, winning the Scottish Juvenile Cup twice in 1944-45 and 1945-46. In 1946, Dundonald turned junior and soon became one of Fife’s foremost clubs, winning the championship on three occasions in the 1950s, while they were also crowned East Region Central Division champions in 2007.
