MASSON HITS OUTSTANDING 300TH APPEARANCE LANDMARK FOR GABLE ENDIES
Montrose FC stalwart Terry Masson has made his 300th appearance for the Club, an outstanding display of commitment and loyalty and an increasingly rare occurrence in the modern game.
The Club’s longest serving player, Terry arrived at Links Park in June 2010 from Junior side Carnoustie Panmure and recently netted his 30th goal in a vital home win against Airdrieonians that helped secure 4th place for the Ladbrokes League 1 newcomers.
A firm favourite with the Mo faithful, the Dundee born midfielder has witnessed real highs and lows in royal blue, from the Brora scare of 2015 to the jubilation of lifting the League 2 title last season.
Stepping up to League 1 this year, the 30-year old has continued to demonstrate his worth to Manager Stewart Petrie’s side making his 40th appearance of the campaign this week in the Club’s first ever Championship Playoff Semi Final first leg against Queen of the South.
Petrie said, “Very few players reach this milestone and Terry is probably playing as well now as he has ever played, which is testament to him. To step up to League 1 for the first time and produce what he is producing is simply outstanding and tells you everything about what he brings to the Club.
Masson’s contract at Links Park was recently extended until the summer of 2021 and an independent, supporter driven committee are working on a Testimonial to mark his 10 year anniversary next year.
Terry received a commemorative watch from Club Chairman John Crawford in front of the rest of the squad last night.
