DILLON MAKES 250TH GABLE ENDIES APPEARANCE

Montrose FC defender Sean Dillon made his 250th appearance for the Club recently, taking to the Links Park turf last month in a 3-0 league win against Edinburgh City.

Coincidentally, the Irishman’s first league appearance for the Mighty Mo was in Aug 2017 away to the same opponents, Edinburgh City, when another 3 goals, from Iain Campbell, Chris Templeman and Connor McLaren secured a 3-1 victory for Stewart Petrie’s men.

Since passing this impressive milestone, the 40-year-old has added another 4 matches. This, added to his tally of 346 games for previous club Dundee United, takes Dillon to an incredible 600 appearances in Scotland, with honours including a Scottish Cup win for the tangerines in 2010 and a League Two winners medal for the Gable Endies in 2018 .

Little wonder then, that the Dublin born centre half has also recently agreed a contract extension, keeping him at Links Park for at least another 12 months.

Presenting Sean with a commemorative, embroidered, signed, and framed shirt, Club Chairman John Crawford said, “We would like to congratulate Sean on reaching this magnificent achievement. He has been such an important player for us over the last 7 years and has helped deliver a period in our history that will never be forgotten. Passing his personal milestone of 600 games in Scotland is simply outstanding, and testament to his ultimate professionalism.

“Sean is such a positive role model, both on and off the field and with his contract extension now agreed, we look forward to him delivering many more solid, defensive performances on the pitch, together with continuing to share his vast experience with younger members of the squad through his dual coaching role.”
