ZIGGY ROMPS HOME TO WIN BIG FOR ALAN
Alan Mercer walked off with over £130 on Friday night as his horse, named Ziggy, galloped home in the final auction race at the club’s annual Race Night.
A healthy crowd enjoyed an evening of the traditional horses racing over jumps and on the flat along with a novelty race involving of all things, pigs!
Many thanks to all those who came along and made the evening a huge success and our photo shows Alan receiving his winnings from Joan Murray.
LEST WE FORGET
The Club took part in the Remembrance Day Parade today and a wreath was laid by Co-Vice Chairmen Peter Stuart and David Laing with Chairman John Crawford also in attendance.
The Club will continue paying our respects to the fallen this coming Saturday, with a pre-match ceremony including a piper, standard bearers, bugler and minutes silence ahead of our League 1 fixture against Stranraer.
STAT UPDATEAhead of tomorrow’s game here is a quick look back at a great away day last week as we got our first league win since August.
MAN OF THE MATCH
Ahead of tomorrow's derby, it's as good a time as any to reflect on a fantastic team performance last week, and the colossal effort of one man in particular.
MATTY ALLAN was our MAN OF THE MATCH, selected by Montrose Legend IAN STEWART.
Matty was presented with his award by club chairman John Crawford in front of a packed hospitality suite on Saturday.
More of the same tomorrow Matty!
We’re very sorry to see that so many people have been left disappointed that our commemorative poppy badges have indeed sold out so quickly.
We can confirm that no pre orders were taken, and that no staff members of the club have purchased badges in advance of 7pm this evening. The badges sold were done so with the best of intentions on behalf of the club to raise funds on behalf of the British Legion.
We are very sorry to hear that so much frustration has been caused by something which had nothing but noble intentions.
The volume ordered was based on the sales of previous badges that have been sold in our shop.
As this was the first time of offering this type of item, it was a difficult task to gauge the level of demand, and we did in fact order slightly more than we have previously safe in the knowledge that as a charitable item we felt confident we would be able to sell any excess stock.
The demand however has indeed been unprecedented, and we are delighted by the response.
For that, and for your incredible support of the charitable cause we thank you all so very much.
We look forward to your continuing support to help us replicate and build on this success in future years.
