Montrose Greats - Les Barr

Les BarrHis nickname "The Legend" sums up this man's contribution to the club far better than the limited space here allows. Signed from Stobswell Juniors in 1971 ass right-winger, he quickly endeared himself to fans with his attacking skils, rasping shot and free-kick and penalty prowess. Injuries to other squad members saw Les move back into the full-back role where he was a revelation. Was at the heart of all the great achievements of the mid-70s, most famously the 60 yard winner in the League Cup quarter final v Hibs and having Montrose 1-0 up from the penalty spot at half-time in the semi v Rangers. From right-back scored a phenomenal 16 times (including penalties) in season 75-76 and in all 63 goals in over 200 appearances before joining Dundee in 1978. Helped Dundee into the Premier League and picked up a League Cup runners-up medal in season 80/81. Returned to Links Park in 1982 and was rewarded with a Division Two championship medal in 84/85 when he was an ever-present (there could have been no more deserving player in the squad). Eventually retired in 1989 but not before one final act of giant-killing when Hearts were beaten 2-0 at Tynecastle in 1986.
