Montrose Greats - Charles M. Burgess

Montrose Greats - Craig Mailer

Craig MailerCraig was signed from Perth junior side in February 1995 and has proved to be an astute signing having played 220 plus 7 sub appearances scoring seven goals since then.
`Jailer' is a quiet unassuming person off the pitch but always gives 110% in the `Mo' jersey.
His versatlity is a further strength as he's served the club in nearly every position including goalkeeper at Gayfield Park a few seasons ago and also in matches against Clydebank and Queen's Park - a position he seems quite comfortable playing in.
Watching his delight at the cup win at Arbroath proves that he's a supporter as well as a quality player whom we hope is around Links Park Stadium for a while to come.

Montrose Greats - Steve Lennox

Steve LennoxBrought to Links Park by Ian Stewart in the summer of 1984 from Stoke City, Steve went on to be the key player in the title winning side of 1984/85 squad.
Steve had the ability to control a game and along with Neil Forbes, Mark Bennett and Alex Wright formed a formidable championship midfield.
He made 53+2 sub appearances for Montrose scoring 10 goals before moving to Forfar Athletic in the summer of 1986 in a swap deal that took Alan Lyons and Gary Murray to Links Park.
Montrose saw the best of Steve Lennox and those who watched the Gable Endies during the title winning season will not readily forget the contribution he made.
After leaving Station Park he moved to East Fife before finishing his career in the Highland League with Peterhead.

Montrose Greats - Innes McDonald

Innes McDonaldInnes Macdonald was one of many players who had two or more spells at Links Park.
He arrived at the club aged 19 in 1981 from Sheffield United but after a couple of seasons at the club he moved on to Highland League side Keith.
Ian Stewart brought him back to Links Park from Keith in 1986 where he was now playing as a winger. He made his return debut in a division one fixture against East Fife at Links Park. After coming on as a substitute he turned a the match and scored a stunning equalising goal.
Innes tremendous form over the next 18 months caught the eye of Gordon McQueen and a fee of £35,000 took him to Airdrieonians. Only after some memorable performances at Tynecastle and Easter Road in the League Cup.
His work continued to take him abroad and when he returned to the country from Italy in 1994 he once again returned to Links Park and played his part in the side that won promotion to division two in 1995. He left the club for the last time in 1998 and last season played for Forfar Athletic before work commitments finally ended his playing days.
Innes remains a popular player in Montrose fans eyes and they recognised his contribution to the club.

Montrose Greats - Ian Stewart

Ian StewartThe third `player becomes manager' to feature in this column is Ian Stewart. Originally part of the mid 70's squad following a career at Dundee United, Ian started his managerial career at Brechin City where he is accredited with turning them around after a lengthy barren spell. He moved on to Gayfield narrowly missing promotion twice before being dismissed controversially in 1983. Two days later, Ian was back at Links Park where he set about transforming the club. Astute signings, new fitness regimes and lots of motivation saw Montrose come from last place in senior football to division two champions the following season ahead of Alloa Athletic and Jim Leishman's Dunfermline Athletic.
The fans rolled back to Links Park rightly acknowledging Stewart as the significant factor in their triumph. Ian went on to oversee the defeat of Hearts at Tynecastle in 1986 and his record over Arbroath during his time at Links Park is impressive.
Considering the resources available to him, Ian must rank as one of our best ever managers. He remains a Montrose fan and it's a pity he wasn't involved in the club today in some capacity.

Montrose Greats - John Sheran

 

John Sheran John first joined Montrose under Bobby Livingstone in 1978 from Ellon United juniors but a bad leg break suffered in a pre season friendly up North seemed to have ended the then youngsters career.
He was freed later but returned under Ian Stewart from Nairn County in December 1983 to become a pivotal part of the title winning 1984/85 squad.
Playing alongside Les Barr, Chic McLelland, Tony Duffy, Ronnie Cusiter and Ray Charles he played in every game during the championship season.
John played in the famous 1986 win at Tynecastle and turned out 333 plus 2 sub times for the Gable Endies scoring 19 times.
Etched on my memory is John leading supporters round Links Park after the second division title was in May 1985 against Stenhousemuir.
He left Links Park for Australia and came back in 1991 for a third spell with the club. After spells in management in Aberdeen he joined Montrose as assistant to Kevin Drinkell in October 1998.
Now in the dugout, John will be hoping his passion for the club can be reflected on the pitch and in the Dynamo.
