Saturday 17th November v Montrose at Broomy, Montrose
Martin Kelly; Ally McNaught, Allan Mackenzie, Alan Galindo, Allan
At the start of the season we decided that we wanted to play some Saturday games against fellow 3rd Division supporters.
So far the only club which has given us a positive response is Montrose and we arranged an away game first of all.
This meant a very early start time of 7am at Battlefield so we could kick off at 10am (ish) in Angus and spend more time in the pub before and after our game.
Despite everything we managed to get a playing squad of thirteen, although Danny was injured and The Boss was making his first appearance of the season.
Martin came back in goals as the lack of playing squad meant that Andy volunteered to play outfield; the four Al’s were at the back; Gary, LHD, the skipper and Paul in the middle; Adam and Sebo up front.
Montrose were an unknown quantity but we nearly went ahead within a few minutes as we were awarded a penalty but Sebo’s kick was saved.
The first half was a close contest and LHD opened the scoring before an excellent home goal made it one all at the break.
In the second half we ran away with things as our superior organisation and fitness told.
Adam and Sebo both scored twice along with Andy D and then Supersub Danny scored a rare goal.
Montrose scored another cracker but we even had time for the Boss to make a cameo appearance and he showed he’d lost none of his acclaimed ability.
A good win and then onto the pub, the big game at Links Park (1-1) then back for some pints in the Legion before heading home.
Thanks to all at Montrose, especially Maz, for organising the game and the pre-match bacon rolls. Hopefully we can reciprocate the hospitality when Montrose play at Hampden later in the season.
