Re: Another Montrose FC history

This book is now on sale at the Links Park Shop at £14. On Saturday when visiting I bought two copies as X mas presents for myself and Sandy "the suit", fair enough one thinks, but Sandy "the suit" bought 2 copies also 30 minutes earlier as X mas presents. Lucky white heather.

Re: Topscorer

Mr Thomson scored 12 league goals in 1911-12 for East Stirling. I also have him missing two penalties, better to contact "The Shire" as their Historian issues some brilliant stuff in his programme page.
