MONTROSE ROSELEA REACH LINKS PARK GROUNDSHARE AGREEMENT

Montrose FC and Montrose Roselea JFC have agreed a deal that will see the Junior side play their home matches at Links Park for an initial one season trial. Both clubs hope this will extend to a ‘ground’ breaking long-term arrangement, being one of the first between a Junior and Senior side in Scotland.

With links between all clubs in the Angus town becoming stronger, the move makes both commercial sense as well as providing all levels of football with the best possible facilities to develop and progress the game.

Roy Gill, Montrose Roselea General Manager said, “This is a great move forward for both clubs and will provide us with much needed stability for the future.

“Maintaining our current ground, Broomfield Park is a year-round activity, and often we only use it once a fortnight. With very little payback, this makes the upkeep expensive for a small club like ourselves.

“Making use of the fantastic facilities at Links Park will open up the potential for us to do more with our Matchday Hospitality and other fundraising events.”

Roselea President, Stuart Robertson added, “Some of our fans will be naturally concerned, as ground sharing at Links Park has been tried in the past, on what was then a grass pitch back in the 80’s. However, I believe the time is right to try again.

“Like most Junior clubs we have a shrinking Committee with only 5 members today, a third of what we had a decade ago. Myself and Roy hold all the Office Bearer positions and that is not healthy, so we hope this move can attract some new blood to the club.

“We have played three games at Links Park as an experiment over the last two seasons and each time we more than doubled our average gate. When we sat down and looked at the positives it was a no brainer and we are delighted and excited to be making this move.”

John Crawford, Montrose FC Chairman added, “I am really pleased to have reached agreement with Stuart and Roy on this trial deal as I am sure it will create a win-win-win situation for not only ourselves, but also Roselea and the town.

“The community spirit in the town and surrounding area right now is the most positive it has been for many, many years and this deal will simply add to this and strengthen the existing relationship between the two clubs.

“As part of the agreement, the intention is our charitable arm, the Links Park Community Trust will be handed the lease on Broomfield Park for use by Montrose Amateur FC, Montrose Ladies FC and Montrose Youth FC, giving all three clubs possibly the best facilities in Scotland for their level.

Roy commented, “It has taken a bit of work to get to this stage and I would like to thank John and everyone at Montrose FC for their support. I am sure opposing teams will look forward to playing on a great surface in great surroundings – just as long as it doesn’t give them too much of an incentive to beat us! However, our home form at Broomfield Park has been the poorest for a long while, so it may be a stroke of genius moving at this time.”
