MONTROSE WIN COMMUNITY PROGRAMME OF THE YEAR
The Gable Endies secured the award at today’s SPFL Trust All Club Conference, following a vote of delegates – comprised of club staff and key stakeholders – after a presentation by the four shortlisted candidates.
Although this year’s first ever award goes to Links Park Community Trust, there were three other strong nominations from Hearts, Greenock Morton and Rangers.
The Links Park Community Trust – the official charity of Montrose FC – secured the award for their Links Park Trails programme.
Designed by teachers in Angus, the trails are thematic learning experiences, designed around the Curriculum for Excellence. They engage hundreds of children across the area, each year.
“We were delighted to even be considered for the award. We were shortlisted alongside some fantastic projects. To win it is quite overwhelming and the fact that it was chosen by our peers, our fellow clubs, make it all the bit sweeter,” explains Links Park Community Trust chief executive Peter Davidson.
SPFL Trust general manager Nicky Reid adds: “We’re delighted for Montrose in securing our first SPFL Trust Community Programme of the Year Award.
“The standard of both submissions and the final shortlist was exceptionally high. Once again this demonstrates why our clubs change people’s lives every day.
“As we’ve said during our Trusted Trophy Tour, our clubs are trusted to support their communities, and this winning programme is a wonderful example of a community’s teachers and the football club coming together to create something meaningful, and highly impactful.”
This year’s Community Programme of the Year Award was sponsored by RJM Sports.

Chairman John Crawford said, “I would like to sincerely thank all those who have turned out to support us this season. We have had over 9,000 fans through the turnstiles at Links Park and with our improved season ticket offer for next year, I hope we can increase our crowds further and encourage even more of our supporters to come along.
“We are already excited about the next campaign and season ticket sales are very important to us at this time, providing a cash injection as we look to strengthen the squad over the summer.
“Having held our gate prices static for some time now, we have unfortunately been forced to increase them slightly for next year due to the overall running costs of the Club going up.
“However, as a thank you to our loyal fan base, we are giving our existing season ticket holders the chance to save up to 20%, by both grabbing our early bird offer and by getting a friend to buy a season ticket at the same time.
“Our Manager Stewart Petrie and his coaching staff have created renewed optimism and positivity around the Club and so I really hope people take advantage of our generous offers.
