Time Tunnel - Jimmy McIntosh

In the Tunnel today is Jimmy McIntosh …….    A Montrose player who made his mark at a higher level.
Jimmy McIntoshWith the passing of time and the various changes in club officials and so on the football club lost contact with Jimmy for a long long time but eventually caught up with him in Ayrshire and he was rightly nominated for the Hall of Fame in March 2014. My records tell me that he first signed for Montrose on 25th April 1970 from Arbroath Vics so it would be the 1970/1 season when he would make his mark in Senior football. And make his mark he certainly did as a tricky outside right as it was called in those days.

Jimmy McIntoshThe Tunnel caught up with Jimmy when he visited town for the Hall of Fame dinner on 29th March. I missed a lot of Jimmy’s career as I was working in London but I do recall the wee chap with boyish looks tearing down the touch line in typical Scottish wingman style of those days. We need as a nation to start producing that type of player again me thinks. So it was a privilege to catch up with him in person and put him in the The Tunnel today to get his recollections of those happy days he spent at Links Park.

Jimmy, I think I got the start right but briefly summarise your career in football .

After Arbroath Vics in the Juniors I had my first spell at Montrose which was followed by transfers to Nottingham Forest, Hull City, Dundee United and then back to Montrose again.

Where are you based now and what are you doing these days?

Involved in the Timex strike that left a bitter taste 93/94.  My wife, Tija and I decided to leave Dundee and bought a Post Office in Girvan in Ayrshire. This unfortunately was one of the Government's Closure Scheme in 2008 and we closed. We are both basically retired now and enjoying our time together very much.

How did it all start for you at Links Park?

This my sound soppy but I genuinely had a great love for Montrose as a kid. We came on holiday every year and I used to dream of one day playing for them. When the chance came it was a NO BRAINER.

I know you were at Nottingham Forest. Who was their Manager and how did that move come about?

Fellow Scot Matt Gillies signed me followed by McKay, Alan Brown, then Assistant Manager Bill Anderson. Then of course the famous Brian Clough.  Five managers in 6 seasons, not great for stability. I left for Hull in '76 and let my heart rule my head in '77 when I came back to Scotland and signed for Dundee United. Things didn't work out but the only good thing that came of it was that I ended up at Montrose again.
The transfer fee (to Tannadice) was 14K + 5K after 20 first team appearances

What were the highlights of your time at Forest?

I must say the surprise call up after a few weeks to make my debut against Everton, current champions at Goodison Park in front of 40K.  Told I did well but was aware of my lack of stamina late on as I only had a few weeks full time training because I commuted to Nottingham at weekends for 5 weeks after signing.

Forget about modesty, tell us about your best game for Montrose.

Probably a game against Cowdenbeath at Links Park which we won 4-1 and went to the top of the League. I was brilliant that day!!

Which were your favourite grounds to play on in both Scotland and England?

Ed: Jimmy didn’t answer this question directly but I recall discussing the matter on the other side of a few drinks after the 135th anniversary doo. He was immensely proud to have played at several big grounds in both England and Scotland. The game which stood out most for him was his Nottingham Forest debut at Goodison Park against Everton. That apart he was at his most happy playing at Links Park in the twilight of his career.

Who was the best player in the squad, apart from you?

I never thought myself the best, but the late Gordon Crammond was some player.

I guess you don’t get to watch Montrose these days but is the club still ‘in your heart’?

Always has been and always will be.

Are you a regular at any other football ground now and which result is the next you look out for?

Not now and follow Nottingham Forest, closely followed by Montrose.

What are you most proud of in your total football career?

Probably going from Junior in April to making my debut in October that year after only weeks of full time training. Might sound modest but that was the springboard for me.

Any regrets?

Retiring too early!

Anything else you would like to mention about your time at Montrose?

First time round definitely was the team spirit we had. It was like a family with no 'prima donas' and genuine warmth and
friendship from Willie Johnston. That's why were so successful during that period.

Jimmy McIntosh will because of the passing of time not be remembered by many of the present day fans but those who saw him wear the shirt will certainly wish we had another like him in the squad today. He was tricky, fast, scored goals, created goals and finally earned the club a healthy transfer fee. He is very much part of the better side of the history of Montrose Football Club and both he and his wife are welcome back to Links Park at any time. Jimmy, older generation fans like me will never forget the contribution you made. Many thanks and great to meet you again.
