MIGHTY MO CAPTAIN REACHES 200 GAMES
Montrose FC Club Captain, Paul Watson made his 200th appearance for the Gable Endies recently against Raith Rovers, a significant achievement in the modern game.
The 32 year old, now in his third spell at Links Park, led Manager Stewart Petrie’s side to victory last season, lifting the Ladbrokes SPFL League 2 trophy for the first time in 33 years.
The Dundee born midfielder is the clubs second longest serving player, contributing 27 goals since joining from St Andrews United back in 2012, the most notable of which came against Edinburgh City on 1st April 2017 from inside his own half, which was subsequently nominated for the SPFL and the SPFA goal of the season.
Stewart Petrie said, “Paul is a top professional, natural leader and great Captain. He has committed many years of his career to this club and I was delighted for him when he lifted the trophy for us last season.”
Club Chairman, John Crawford added, “On behalf of the club I would like to congratulate Paul on reaching this significant milestone. Players move around clubs much more these days so seeing the level of loyalty and commitment Paul has shown to Montrose FC is commendable. After last season, his picture will always be seen on a wall somewhere in Links Park and we hope he can continue to lead our side to even more success.”
