FOXY DEPARTS LINKS PARK
Martyn Fotheringham has left Montrose FC to join up with good friend Stuart Malcolm as part of the new management team at Forfar Athletic.
Foxy has been a key figure at Links Park since his return in 2017, firstly on the field and latterly as part of the coaching staff.
His 64 appearances and 9 goals coincided with the most successful period for the club in recent times and he will forever by remembered as part of the team that won the League 2 title.
A true gent, who we sincerely thank and wish every success for in the future.
YOUNG DEFENDER CELEBRATES 100th APPEARANCE WITH ANNIVERSARY VICTORY
Matty Allan made his 100th appearance for Montrose FC at the weekend in an Angus Derby win over Forfar Athletic that coincided with the Club celebrating its 140th Anniversary.
Now in his fifth season at Links Park, Matty has developed into an accomplished, calm and assured centre half since first joining from the Dundee FC youth system back in 2015.
The 23-year-old enjoyed two loan spells with the club before being snapped up permanently by Manager Stewart Petrie following his release from Dens Park in the summer of 2017, a decision that was to prove crucial with the centre half making the SPFL Team of the Year for 2017/18 as the Gable Endies lifted their first league title in 33 years.
Petrie said, “Many congratulations to Matty. It is a real credit to him that at such a young age he has reached this milestone and I hope he is here for another few hundred games yet.”
Having become a fans favourite, Matty would have reached this milestone last season, had injury not struck. Now back fighting fit, he has already got on the scoresheet this season, netting against Ross County in the Betfred Cup back in July, doubling his tally for the club.
Matty received his award from Honorary Club President, John Paton.
