MO KITS ON SALEMontrose FC fans can pick up a sale bargain as this season’s home shirts are reduced by 25%
Local man John Smith received an unexpected festive gift just before Christmas in the form of a £1,000 cheque from Montrose FC, as his lucky number was drawn from the hat as the December Club 500 winner.
An exciting and innovative lottery scheme, Club 500 allows Gable Endie fans to accumulate shares in their beloved Club each month as well as having the chance of winning 24 BIG cash prizes each year.
Launched last January, the normal monthly jackpot is £500, but in the season of good will, this doubles to a fantastic four figure sum and John has become the first ever £1,000 winner.
Delighted with his success, John remarked how normally spending his winnings
would be very easy and enjoyable, but given the current restrictions it may take a little longer. One thing he was sure of was that close family would be sharing in his good fortune.
The next monthly draw will take place on 23rd January and full details on joining the Club 500 scheme can be found here.
Montrose Football Club are saddened to hear of the passing of Chic McLelland who was both a former player and Manager of this football Club.
He gained Scottish Under-23 caps and played for Aberdeen during their European great years but Chic will always be remembered by all of us at Montrose for the contribution he made during the time he was with us at Links Park where he was a key member of our Division 2 Championship winning squad.
That connection started as a player/coach in 1984 and he became Co-Manager in 1990 until the end of 1991 during which time he amassed 176 of his total 397 appearances in Senior football.
Our sincere thoughts are with his family at this sad time.
