ANGUS SUICIDE PREVENTION COLLABORATION AT LP
Members of Angus Suicide Prevention Collaborative mingled amongst the busy crowd at the recent Stenhousemuir match to raise awareness of the Tayside ‘Suicide? Help!’
An App and support are available via the website www.suicidehelp.co.uk, where you will find information about suicide, contacts for support, how to help and there is space for individuals to develop their own safety plan.
The link with football highlights the link between physical activity and positive mental health. In 2017, the suicide rate for males was more than two-and-a half times that for females, so awareness raising activities where there is a high male audience is needed.
It is important to let everyone know that there is help and support available in Angus and other areas of Tayside. There is also free basic suicide awareness training available in Angus for anyone who lives or works in Angus
TON UP FOR MO’S TOP SCORER
Montrose FC frontman Gary Fraser recently made his 100th appearance for the Club, becoming only the fifth of the current playing squad to do so.
Now in his third term at Links Park, Fraser is aiming to once again finish the season as top goal scorer.
Having joined from Junior outfit Jeanfield Swifts in 2015, the striker made a huge impact on Ladbrokes League 2, quickly becoming a fans favourite and netting an impressive 19 times in his first season.
Last year, his 12 goals helped take the Gable Endies to their first promotion play-off in 9 seasons and despite missing the early part of this campaign through injury, he currently leads the way once more with 7 goals in just over 20 appearences.
Vice Chairman David Laing said, “On behalf of the Club I would like to congratulate Gary on reaching this milestone. He gives everything when he plays and the fans love him for it.
“His goals were crucial to our success last year and hopefully he has a few more in him over the coming weeks as we enter what is set to be an exciting run in to the end of the season.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RONNIE
Everyone at the Club would like to wish Ronnie Marquis a Happy 60th Birthday!!
Having been at Links Park for almost 30 years, Ronnie has done a remarkable job as Groundsman and Kitman, making many friends along the way and his passion and enthusiasm for the Club can be clearly seen through his animated behaviour on the sidelines every Saturday.
Following training tonight, players, management, Directors and staff staged a surprise reception for the Birthday Boy where he received a number of gifts including a special cake in the shape of a mucky home shirt and a framed, signed Celtic top, Ronnie’s second favourite team.
Many happy returns Ronaldo!!!
