Derek Sim With Brain ThirdFive new players were inducted into the Montrose FC Hall of Fame at Hall of Fame dinner in April 2014 which was organised to celebrate the 135th anniversary of Montrose Football Club.
The new players inducted were Hugh Davidson, Willie Nicoll, John Sheran, Brian Third & Colin Maver (player details below).
Former Montrose FC Chairman, the late Willie Johnston also received a lifetime achievement award which was presented to his family members.
The "Flying Dutchman" Ivo Den Bieman also attended the dinner and was presented with his Hall of Fame Award from 2014


HUGH DAVIDSON (2006 to 2011 - 164 appearances, 4 goals)
Hugh DavidsonFast forward 50 years and Hugh was possibly the modern day equivalent of Ronnie Cross. Never a showy player, he was nonetheless a great holding midfielder whose greatest skill was perhaps his ball winning ability. Indeed one of the goalkeepers he played with, observed how much better the defence played with "Scooby" sitting in front of them. A Scotland U-21 international whilst at Dundee United, he was signed from Arbroath and went on to become club captain and a fans' favourite. Decided to retire in 2011 and sadly have to go off injured after only 20 minutes of his final game at Hampden on the last day of the season.


COLIN MAVER (1988 to 1993 - 190 appearances, 31 goals)
Colin MaverLike Innes MacDonald, Colin had been attracting rave reviews for his performances for Keith - in his case on the right-wing - when Ian Stewart brought him to Links Park in March 1988 He immediately became a fans’ favourite with a goal on his debut to secure a 1-0 victory at Brechin. Of modest stature, his gritty style coupled pace with impressive dribbling ability. Colin also contributed more than his fair share of goals in his early years at the club before being moved infield to a more central role under the Rougvie/McLelland partnership and was another key member of the 90-91 promotion side, before returning to Keith at the end of season 92-93.


WILLIE NICOLL (1959 to 1962 - 103 appearances, 2 goals)
Willie NicollWillie had opportunities to sign for both Manchester United and Rangers as a youngster, but both moves fell through. Instead he made his name in the senior ranks with Arbroath in the fifties. He put pen to paper for Montrose in the summer of 1959, coinciding with a five year spell where the Gable Endies were regularly challenging for promotion to Division One. That was easily the most successful spell in the club’s history to that point and Willie’s commanding presence at centre-half helped to strengthen what had previously been a somewhat porous defence. A recurring back injury brought his career at Links Park to a premature end in 1962, though he played a few games for Brechin before retiring.


JOHN SHERAN (1979 to 1991 ( 3 spells) - 333 appearances, 22 goals)
John SheranA strong no-nonsense centre-back, there was nothing flash about John but he was a highly effective defender. It was therefore a major shock when Dennis D’Arcy decided to release him in 1983. Ian Stewart was clearly amongst those surprised by the decision, for when he was appointed manager six months later, he quickly brought John back to Links Park from Nairn County. It was an inspired move as in the 84-85 Championship season he contributed seven vital goals and was voted Player of the Year. He remained a regular until late 1987 when he quit for personal reasons before returning in 1989 for a year-long third spell. John returned to the club as assistant manager to Kevin Drinkell in October 1998 and took over from him two years later, before ultimately resigning in October 2004.


BRIAN THIRD (1971 to 1973 - 92 appearances, 50 goals)
Brian ThirdOriginally a full-back, whilst at Peterhead, Brian stood in as an emergency striker with phenomenal results, scoring seven goals in his first two games up front. He never looked back and in March 1971 Alec Stuart paid out a club record £2,000 for him. By the end of the following season, Brian had netted a respectable 17 goals in 43 appearances and Montrose fans were well aware of his powerful shooting ability and exceptional pace, but could never have anticipated his contribution in season 72-73. In all he scored 33 goals in 49 starts, still a club record in a single season and was justly voted Player of the Year. Unsurprisingly, this attracted the attentions of other clubs and in the summer of 1973 he moved to St Mirren for £10,000.
