Links Park Legends - Colin McGlashan


Colin McGlashanThe phrase 'man of many clubs ' is often used to describe players but Montrose favourite Colin McGlashan can list nine league clubs on his CV and then add crack junior outfit Tayport for good measure. (For those who want to try to name the senior sides they are listed at the bottom of the page.)
Colin was signed for Montrose by John Holt at the start of the1994-95 season and his fine footballing brain and ability to score goals soon made him a firm favourite with the Dynamo.
He quickly struck up a fine understanding with Allan Kennedy and the duo became a free scoring partnership. During that first season Colin netted 24 goals, including a hat trick against Arbroath, with Allan getting 22.
At the end of that season the Gable Endies won promotion to the Second division and one of Colin's most enjoyable memories of playing for Montrose was the game against Cowdenbeath, when they won 4 - 0 to clinch promotion, with Alan Kennedy claiming a hat-trick.
As the above figures show, Colin was no mean goal getter himself and, although the Links Parkers were relegated the following season, he finished as the Division's top scorer. He then scored 21 goals in 41 matches the following season despite the fact that the Club itself was going through a poor spell.
Another of Colin's memorable matches was the third round Scottish cup-tie against Morton at Links Park in 1996. The teams had drawn at Cappielow on the Tuesday night and, with the next round looming, the replay had to take place the following night.
Montrose were struggling to get into the game but Colin slotted home three goals himself to take them through to the next round with a 3- 2 scoreline. The winners had been drawn to play St Johnstone away on the Saturday and the efforts of the week were just too much for a part time club and the fairy tale ended with an exhausted Montrose losing 3- 0.
In all, Colin spent 4 years at Links Park, scoring over 80 goals at the rate of almost one every two games before he was finally transferred for a five-figure sum in October 1998.
Colin is of course the subject of one of the most famous stories in Scottish football. Playing in a match for Partick Thistle against Aberdeen he was injured in a clash of heads with Doug Rougvie, (who himself became something of a Links Park Legend,) and had to be taken off suffering from concussion.
The Thistle trainer told Manager John Lambie that the player was badly concussed and that he didn't know who he was. Lambie replied, "Good, send him back on and tell him he's Pele."
Today Colin coaches an under 13 side and admits to being a season ticket holder at Ibrox.
(Colin's nine senior teams were; Dundee, Dunfermline, Cowdenbeath, Clyde, Partick Thistle, Ayr United, Montrose, Arbroath, & Elgin City.)
