LINKS PARK TO REMEMBER THE FALLEN

Fans will fall silent on Saturday ahead of the Gable Endies League 2 match against Annan Athletic in a special tribute to our war heroes past and present.

In a first for the football club in modern times, players will be led onto the pitch by standard bearers before a solo bugler plays the last post ahead of the traditional minutes silence.

After the match, a unique and commemorative shirt, signed by the first team squad will be auctioned off with proceeds going to the Royal British Legion.

Organiser and Vice Chairman of the Montrose Branch of the Royal British Legion, Ally Hutchison explained, “It is great to see the Legion and the football club working so closely together on this and I must thank Montrose FC for all their support in helping us mark this special day.”

The Royal British Legion was founded by veterans after the First World War and a century on they are still helping today's Service men and women, veterans, and their families in almost every aspect of daily life.

The Montrose branch was formed in November 1931 with members meeting once a month in a recreational hall in Mill Street before moving to Queen Street in 1933. In 1964 the Artillery Territorial HQ in Wellington Street was purchased by the War Office and became the home of the Montrose Branch, where it remains today.

The teams on Saturday will be led out by the Legion standard bearer, retired Bombardier Ron Blacklaws, a former soldier based at the Artillery Headquarters in Wellington Street and groundsman of 6 years at Links Park back in the 1960’s. Ron will be flanked by Lance Bombardier Lewis Gaskin of the Royal Artillery, Montrose Army Cadet Force and Cadet Flight Sergeant Jamal Ronald of 2288 Squadron, Montrose Air Training Corps.

The solo bugler will be Kirstina Fairweather of the Montrose Town Band.

Club Chairman John Crawford said, “This is set to be a fitting and emotional tribute and one that most of our fans will never have witnessed at Links Park before. When the Legion approached us with the idea we were more than happy to help and it is all the more fitting with the 11th coinciding with a home match.”

Fans are requested to arrive at least 10 minutes ahead of kickoff to allow the tribute to be conducted uninterrupted.

Our photo shows Mo Boss Stewart Petrie with Ron, showing off the specially commissioned poppy red shirt complete with embroidered match details and the immortal words ‘Lest We Forget’. Signed by the players, the shirt will be framed and fans can now bid for the auction item via the football club’s Facebook page.
