REMEMBERING JOHN

All at Montrose FC were saddened to hear of the passing of John McGlashan earlier this month and with his funeral taking place today, our thoughts and condolences are with Johns family at this difficult time.

As a mark of respect to the great man, a minutes applause was held on Saturday ahead of our home match against Stirling Albion, made even more emotional with the presence of a number of John’s former team mates.

John started his Senior football career at Links Park as a 21-year-old in 1988 and quickly established himself as a player who would go far in the senior game.

His strong powerful running from the centre of the park and his goalscoring exploits saw him make 68 appearances and net 10 times for the Gable Endies before being snapped up by Millwall in 1990 for a five-figure fee where he became team mate of a certain Manchester United striker, Teddy Sheringham!

John enjoyed a successful spell in English football playing for Peterborough United and Rotherham United as well as loan spells with Fulham and Cambridge United.

On returning north of the border in 1997 he went on to play for his home town team Dundee and then had a two-year spell with Ross County before finishing his Senior playing career with Angus neighbours Arbroath.

Overall John scored 57 Senior goals mostly (25) for Arbroath for whom he made 120 appearances and for whom he also managed from 2005 to 2009.

Ex-team mate Gary Murray said, “John and I became friends pretty much immediately when he arrived at Links Park. We always kept in touch during his successful playing days down south and more recently we met weekly to talk football over coffee. John was determined and dedicated as a professional, he had a great influence on my son Simon and was always positive and cheerful.

“I will truly miss my friend.”

Les Barr added, “I will always remember John as an honest lad, not only in football but as a human being. He was great with kids wanting to be footballers and it was so sad to hear the news.

“Heaven has another Angel.”

Alan Lyons said, “Big John was an immediate hit with his teammates when he arrived at Links Park. He was very unassuming and just wanted to play. As a box to box midfielder he was fantastic for the Mo and went on to have a fantastic career.

“A great teammate, true gentleman and sorely missed.”

David Larter added, “John was a big raw Junior when he joined us at Montrose but he soon established himself as a box to box midfielder who could score goals. He quickly became both a players and fans favourite with his passion and dedication to Montrose.

“Whilst in London I met John a couple of times and on one occasion advised him to take the new contract that MillwallManager Bruce Rioch had offered him.

“John was not only a great footballer but a great lad whotouched many lives in his lifetime and will be fondly remembered by us all.”
