WHATEVER IT TAKES
League 1 Table 2019/20
Congratulations to Anne Reoch whose number was pulled out first in this months prize draw, winning her £500.
In these uncertain times, this scheme has become increasingly important to the Club and we thank all those who continue to support it.
Anyone wishing to join, or increase their number of tickets can do so from our website here.
The £100 prize this month went to the NOMADS, a small local group who dabble in stocks and shares and who very kindly donated their winnings back to the Club.
The Montrose FC Supporters Club have reacted quickly to the plight of their beloved team by making a £1,000 donation to the Club’s fighting fund.
With all football currently suspended indefinitely, normal revenue streams have abruptly stopped but the Supporters Club are determined to do all they can to help. Chairman, Graham Christieson explained, “This donation is just the start of an initiative we are calling ‘Whatever it Takes!’. We are determined to ensure that the Club that means so much to us all survives financially. We will be sharing more information shortly as to how all fans and supporters can contribute.”
Club Chairman, John Crawford said, “This is a fantastic gesture and greatly appreciated at this difficult and uncertain time. It once again shows just how strong and close-knit a group we are.”

An update from the Community Trust
We wish to advise that we have suspended ALL of our charitable programmes until further notice.
We are in the process of preparing a paper/proposal as to how we may be able to offer a provision, in the coming weeks/months, that would allow the children of key workers to attend Links Park Stadium, under the supervision of our staff, in support of our NHS in particular.
This will involve extensive dialogue with local and national bodies, and we’ll keep you all informed of any updates/progress.
Meantime, we urge ALL members of our community to follow and respect the advice being given to us by Government, who are being advised by epidemiology experts.
THIS IS NOT A HOLIDAY!
We ALL have a responsibility to limit the spread of Coronavirus so that, (a) we protect the welfare of those living in our community, and in particular those most ‘at risk’ of the complications associated with the contraction of the disease, and (b) so that the NHS can cope with the ‘peak’ of hospitalisations in the hope that it doesn’t breach their capacity.
Although children may seem ‘fine’ they are dangerous vectors/carriers of the disease, and allowing them to mix with others, and in particular those most ‘at risk’ because they don’t seem to present with symptoms, will continue the spread of the disease and add to severity of the pandemic.
Deaths, according to experts, could reach 20k to 250k. The actions we take over the coming days/weeks/months will dictate such.
PROMOTE SOCIAL DISTANCING!
