Montrose FC 125th Anniversary Dinner

 

125th Anniversary Dinner

125th Anniversary DinnerMontrose supporters present at the 125th anniversary dinner will be unlikely to forget the evening in a hurry. It was an night of nostalgia, with former players, from the 1940s onward to members of the present team, officials and supporters of all ages, gathered to celebrate the Club's 125th anniversary. Also present were representatives from the other Angus Clubs, Montrose Roselea and David Taylor of the Scottish Football Association and Peter Donald of the Scottish Football League.
But the night was all about Montrose FC and many old Links Park favourites were present; Jimmy Kemp, Willie Nicoll, Colin Maver, Mark Bennett, Alex Wright, Kenny Craig, Bruce Martin, John McGlashan, Steven King and many, many more; The evening was a virtual who's who of some of the great names in Links Park history.
Club Chairman John Paton welcomed those present, and particularly Club President Willie Johnston, who had played such a big part in the Club's history and Mr Allan Scobie, who played in the Montrose side that defeated Queen of the South in 1948, the earliest side to be represented on the night.
Of course many people connected with the Club, including the Johnston brothers, who started association football in the town, and internationalists Alexander Keillor and George Bowman have long since passed away and Colin Farquharson, Chairman of the Gable Endies Supporters Trust, called for a minute's silence in memory of all of the players, backroom staff and supporters from the last 125 years who were no longer with us.
The first speaker was former player-manager Alec Stewart, the man who was responsible for producing one of the best sides ever to represent Montrose FC
After outlining his footballing philosophy and recalling a few stories he listed his 'dream team' in 4-4-2 formation. Dave Gorman (although he admitted that fellow speaker David Larter would be a possibility), Les Barr, Malcolm Lowe, Dennis Darcy, Gordon Cramond, Jimmy McIntosh, Bobby Hutchison, Harry Johnston, Kenny Watson, Brian Third & Bobby Livingstone. Sub; Charlie Guthrie.

.Les Barr, always a firm favourite with the Dynamo, spoke of his two spells at Links Park. His first was as a young player was during the seventies, under Alec Stuart. These were wonderful times at Links Park with some marvellous results, and that goal against Hibs was scored from at least 85 yards!
His second spell, under Ian Stewart, saw the team win their first ever League Championship, and put Hearts out of the Skol Cup. Les pointed out that teams like Montrose were not just about players, but also about the backroom staff and particularly supporters.
Another former player, David Larter, spoke of his time at the Club. He had made a single appearance in the team that won the Championship and had been a regular in the 1991 and 1994 promotion winning teams. In all he had played 432 games when serious injury brought his career to an end.
During the evening the entrants into the Montrose Hall of Fame, selected by the Club's supporters, were named and each received a certificate and a montage of the top eleven, drawn by Crieff' artist Pedro Brock. Those selected were Harry Johnston, Ivo Den Bieman, Dennis D'Arcy, Bobby Livingstone, Martin Allan, Colin McGlashan, Gary Murray, Ian Stewart, and speakers Les Barr, Alec Stuart and David Larter.
In conclusion Mr Paton thanked all those who attended and particularly Willie Johnston and also the 125 committee. The evening was compered by Malcolm Watters and John Ednie.
