GABLE ENDIES SEEK UNDERSTANDING FROM LOCALS OVER CUP CROWDS
With more than 3,000 fans expected to descend on Links Park this Saturday for the Scottish Cup 4th Round match between Montrose and Dundee Utd, the Club are appealing for understanding from local residents for any inconvenience this may cause.
Club Chairman John Crawford explained, “This is obviously a much bigger crowd than normal and as we expect a lot of people to travel by car, the streets in and around the ground are set to be extremely busy in the built up to kick off at 3pm and after the match at 5pm.
“Segregation will be in place which means Montrose fans will enter Links Park by the usual turnstiles on Wellington Street, with the Dundee United support using the Away turnstiles in Union Row.
“We have advised bus companies to park in the mid-Links area, allowing fans access to the Away turnstiles via Union Street.
“Both car parks at Links Park will be for Players and Officials only and so we would urge supporters to consider parking a bit further from the ground than normal to ease congestion.
“Our fans and the whole of the local community have provided us with great support in recent years and this big game in just another reward for what we have collectively achieved since Stewart Petrie arrived as Manager back in December 2016.
“I can only apologise in advance to local residents for any inconvenience this will cause on Saturday but hope they understand the situation and appreciate we have done all we can to minimise the impact.”
Fans are reminded that the match is an ALL TICKET affair and Montrose fans can get theirs from the Club Office at Links Park until Fri from 10am to 4pm. Additionally, tickets will be on sale at the stadium in the Willie Johnston Lounge on Thu (17th) evening from 6pm to 8pm.

CHAIRMAN URGES TOWN TO GET BEHIND GABLE ENDIES TANGERINE CUP DREAM
Saturday 19th January looms large for Montrose FC as they gear up for their first Scottish Cup 4th Round tie since 2011 and Club Chairman John Crawford is hoping the town will come out in numbers and get right behind their team.
Having seen off Annan Athletic in Round 3 with a pulsating 4-3 replay victory at Galabank, a mouth-watering home tie against Ladbrokes Championship side Dundee United now awaits.
John said, “We were firstly delighted to be in the 4th Round draw for the first time in 8 years and then really excited when we were gifted a home tie against such a big team. Cup draws have not been very kind to us recently but we certainly cannot complain about this one and I hope our fans don’t miss the opportunity to see what is set to be a cracking game.
“We know Dundee Utd will bring a large following, but our fans have been superb recently, providing great support to Manager Stewart Petrie and all the players.”
Fans are reminded that the match is an all ticket affair and Montrose fans can get theirs from the Club Office at Links Park, Mon-Fri from 10am to 4pm. Additionally, tickets will be on sale at the stadium in the Willie Johnston Lounge this Sat (12th) from 10am to 12pm and on Tue (15th) and Thu (17th) evenings next week from 6pm to 8pm. Tickets for the Bryan Keith Stand are Adult £20, Concessions £10 and Terrace Tickets are Adult £18, Concessions £9.
Montrose last reached the 4th Round in January 2011 when a stoppage time equaliser from Paul Tosh at Links Park (2-2) earned a replay against Dunfermline Athletic and despite the big striker scoring twice at East End Park, the Gable Endies were eventually beaten 5-3. The only survivor from that starting line-up is Terry Masson, currently the longest serving player at the Club.
