Sad Times for the Links Park Family
The untimely passing of Links Park stalwart Bob Mutch (pictured left) at the weekend brought closure on an extremely sad two weeks for the Links Park family. Bob was a well know face to all those who frequented Links Park and the announcement of his death came only a day after the passing of Club Photographer Tony Morrison, who had been unwell for some time. The Club were already dealing with the news of Manager Paul Hegarty’s mothers sudden death only the day after the Club secured their league status in the Pyramid Play-Off Final against Brora Rangers.
Club Chairman Derek Sim said, “These events very much put football into perspective and remind you of what is really important in life. Our thoughts and condolences are with Paul and his family at this time.
“As for Tony and Bob, they were both well known faces around the Club and will be sorely missed.
“Tony was a larger than life character with an eye for a good shot and many of his pictures can be seen on our web site, in our programmes and even adorning the corridors and Lounges at Links Park.
“Bob has been a great servant and supporter of this Club for many, many years. Whether opening up the ground for pitch hires, chatting with players on training nights, keeping corporate hospitality guests right on match days or enjoying many of the Club’s social evenings, Bob simply loved life and loved Montrose FC.
“On behalf of all Directors, Management, players and staff, I extend our deepest sympathy to all family and friends.”
