Derek’s Got His, What About You? - Become a Pitch Sponsor Now
Montrose FC are delighted to announce the opportunity for fans to become a sponsor of the hallowed Links Park turf. The existing artificial playing surface has come to the end of its natural life and in June this year, a new state of the art pitch will be laid.
The Club are offering fans the chance to sponsor a square of the new surface (approx 5m x 5m) for a one off price of £135. This will last for the lifetime of the surface, estimated at between 8-10 years. Each sponsor will receive a framed certificate, will have their name on an advertising board around the pitch and will be regularly featured in the match day programme. Additionally, sponsors will have the chance each season to win a free prize draw for Corporate Hospitality.
Chairman Derek Sim said, “This is a great opportunity for the people of Montrose to support what has become a very well used facility for the local community. In return they will see their name displayed around the ground, on our web site and regularly in our programmes. To commemorate the end of the Club’s 135th season we have set the price at £135 per square, which is less than £15 per year, and I am delighted to say we have already had a lot of interest.”
Squares will be allocated on a lucky draw basis but for those wishing to be more at the heart of the action, the 6 yard boxes can be sponsored separately at a cost of £1,350 each or if you want to be more spot on with your donation each of the 18 yard boxes can be sponsored at a cost of £3,135.
New Montrose FC Management Team
Montrose Football Club have appointed Dundee United legend Paul Hegarty as their new manager.
The Angus outfit parted company with former boss George Shields after Saturday’s 3-0 home defeat to East Fife with the Gable Endies currently sitting second bottom of League Two.
Now, they have turned to Hegarty, who has previous management experience at Forfar, Aberdeen, United and Livingston.
Ironically, he also recently had a stint coaching with East Fife.
Lee Wilkie has stepped down as Montrose assistant manager and Hegarty has brought in his former Dundee United team-mate John Holt to replace him.
Gable Endies chairman Derek Sim said: “Montrose Football Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Paul Hegarty as our new team manager who, in addition, has appointed John Holt as assistant manager following Lee Wilkie’s decision to stand aside.
“Paul and John have agreed contracts to the end of the season.
“Paul has a great stature in the game, brings a high level of management and coaching experience, a great knowledge of the game plus an enthusiasm which can only assist in the coming weeks of ensuring the club climbs the league.
“John Holt had a very distinguished football career and returns to Montrose having had a brief spell as manager in seasons 1993/94 and 1994/95 which ultimately led to promotion.
“We welcome both to Links Park.
“Montrose FC also wish to thank Lee Wilkie for all his efforts and offer him best wishes for the future.”
