Time Tunnel - Hamish Brannan

In the Tunnel today I’m delighted to say we have Hamish Brannen, or simply HAMISH as we all know him. I doubt if there is a Mo fan anywhere who does not know Hamish or who has not come across him at least at an away game. He stands behind the goals, along the side or in the front row of the Stand wherever he can find somebody to talk to about the Mo. At an away game at Berwick once we didn’t have many fans there but I knew Hamish was on the other side as I could hear his non-stop singing – all on his own but surrounded by Berwick fans. I caught up with him recently at Links Park when he was sitting in the Stand chatting to Ian Stott though I hadn’t a clue what they were talking about! Anyway here’s a few words from the indefatigable Hamish :-

Have you always lived in Montrose?
Yes, all my life – I’m 53 now

How long have you been coming to Links Park?
I started coming when I was at school. Lots of other lads came to the football then but not many now. I still come because I just love it and the Mo are a major part of my life.

Daft question but where do you stand or sit usually?
I like to stand between the pie hut and the edge of the penalty area but I get itchy feet during the game so end up behind either goal mouth or even sometimes on the front row of the main stand beside Ian Stott.

Do you go to many away games still?
I haven’t always gone to away games but I do when I can afford it or if there is a bus on.

How can we get more folk to come to Links Park?
We need to have a winning team or at least a team playing good football regularly. Maybe some pre-match entertainment. (Ed: I think he said something about dancing girls!). Cost of getting in might be an issue as well – Ok at the moment but still maybe too much for all but those who are concessions.

Looking back, which period in time do you remember best as a Montrose fan?
The Hibs game when Les Barr scored that amazing winning goal in front of a full stadium. Also coming back to beat Raith Rovers in the second leg when most people had written us off. Then there was the Hampden Semi-final as well. Great days.

Which players do you remember stood out, name as many as you like?
Les Barr, Bob Livingstone, Charlie Guthrie, Dennis D’Arcy, Gordon Crammond, Brian Third, John Sheran, Alex Stuart, Martin Boyle – Hamish just kept on going, I couldn’t keep up with him!

Who was the most outstanding Manager Montrose ever had?
Alex Stuart – he gave us a great team and a golden era in Montrose.

Pick a highlight, one which immediately springs to mind, a particular game, a very special goal or moment you’ll never forget. Pick more than one if you like?
There was a 3-3 draw at Elgin recently which was a great game and the 8-1 against Clyde but one which really sticks in the mind was the 12-0 win over Vale of Leithen.

Is there a particular game or moment you’ll never forget but for all the wrong reasons?
Yes, two in fact. The 0-6 at home to Peterhead and the 0-5 away at Berwick, both recently. I don’t like either of them.

Which other teams’ result is the first you look for after a Montrose game?
Celtic and Carlisle. Maybe Dundee United as well.

Do you think we should stick to 10 team divisions playing each other 4 times or would you prefer to go back to bigger divisions playing twice only?
I quite like 10 team divisions as there’s always something to play for.

Who was Montrose FC’s best ever player in your time?
John Sheran.

Anything else you would like to say or recall about your time watching Montrose FC?
It would be good to go home from Links Park feeling really good more often but whatever happens I just love it. I look forward to every game.

What he says in his last sentence is totally what he means. He lives for his football and is the type of fan we need more of. He sings his heart out on the terraces and at away games the players can’t fail to hear him. He also provides lots of entertainment for opposition fans except those of a certain team who play in Cumbernauld. Keep it going Hamish, you are a terrific fan of this football club.
