WINNERS REUNITE AT LINKS PARK
A few of the 1985 Championship side, including Manager Ian Stewart and a few from the 1991 Promotion side and backroom staff enjoyed a day of reminiscing and hospitality at our last home fixture against Dumbarton.
A great day was had by all and to cap it off the current team produced all 3 points to send everyone home very happy.
Club Ambassador David Larter said “ It is great after 30 years to be back together, with the banter and reminiscing flying it just felt like yesterday.
“Thanks to the Club for helping us get this together, it was much appreciated by us all and well done to the boys for a great victory”
Club Announcer Ross Thomson also took the opportunity to interview Ex-Boss Ian Stewart and this will be published shortly.
KEVIN TAKES ‘DANDY’ OPPORTUNITY TO NETWORK
Kevin Watson, one of our Supporter Liaison Officers (SLO) caught up recently with Lynn Fiske, his counterpart at Pittodrie, to share their experience of taking on this new position with their respective clubs.
The SLO role, backed by UEFA is a position independent of any official Supporters Club, with unique access to the Board of Directors designed to ensure all fans have a dedicated point of contact with the club.
Kevin said, “We had a really productive chat. Lynn has been in post since June last year so it was great to hear how things have gone for her in that time.
Kevin was appointed SLO at Links Park along with Stephen McCallum back in September and the pair are determined to help bring the supporters and the club closer together.
Kevin added, “Despite our clubs being quite different in size, the issues and concerns Lynn faced from the Red Army are very similar to ours, so there is a lot we can take from Lynn’s recent experience.”
“It was also great to hear Lynn compliment Montrose on being a fantastic community club and having a strong reputation. Great to hear we are thought of so highly by clubs like Aberdeen.”
ZIGGY ROMPS HOME TO WIN BIG FOR ALAN
Alan Mercer walked off with over £130 on Friday night as his horse, named Ziggy, galloped home in the final auction race at the club’s annual Race Night.
A healthy crowd enjoyed an evening of the traditional horses racing over jumps and on the flat along with a novelty race involving of all things, pigs!
Many thanks to all those who came along and made the evening a huge success and our photo shows Alan receiving his winnings from Joan Murray.
LEST WE FORGET
The Club took part in the Remembrance Day Parade today and a wreath was laid by Co-Vice Chairmen Peter Stuart and David Laing with Chairman John Crawford also in attendance.
The Club will continue paying our respects to the fallen this coming Saturday, with a pre-match ceremony including a piper, standard bearers, bugler and minutes silence ahead of our League 1 fixture against Stranraer.
We’re very sorry to see that so many people have been left disappointed that our commemorative poppy badges have indeed sold out so quickly.
We can confirm that no pre orders were taken, and that no staff members of the club have purchased badges in advance of 7pm this evening. The badges sold were done so with the best of intentions on behalf of the club to raise funds on behalf of the British Legion.
We are very sorry to hear that so much frustration has been caused by something which had nothing but noble intentions.
The volume ordered was based on the sales of previous badges that have been sold in our shop.
As this was the first time of offering this type of item, it was a difficult task to gauge the level of demand, and we did in fact order slightly more than we have previously safe in the knowledge that as a charitable item we felt confident we would be able to sell any excess stock.
The demand however has indeed been unprecedented, and we are delighted by the response.
For that, and for your incredible support of the charitable cause we thank you all so very much.
We look forward to your continuing support to help us replicate and build on this success in future years.

DOUBLE CELEBRATION FOR STEEVES
Andrew Steeves has agreed a 12 month contract extension with Montrose FC, keeping the fans favourite at the club until the summer of 2021.
News of the deal broke on Saturday as the full back also celebrated making his 150th appearance for the Gable Endies, setting up the winning goal in a 1-0 win over Dumbarton.
The ex-St Johnstone man arrived at Links Park, initially on loan from Forfar Athletic in March 2015 and penned a permanent deal the following season.
The 23-year old has gone from strength to strength, winning various club awards and making last season’s SPFL Team of the Year, having played in every league game as Stewart Petrie’s side made history lifting the Ladbrokes League 2 title for the first time in 33 years.
The Mo Boss said, “Andrew is a true professional, a great guy and a pleasure to work with week to week. I am delighted he has committed his future here, he is exactly the calibre of player we want at the club and I believe he will go on and make over 300 appearances for Montrose.”
Chairman John Crawford presented Andrew with his 150th Appearance trophy after Saturday’s match.
