Montrose fans snapped up their new season tickets last week at a launch event that saw manager Paul Hegarty and a number of club directors in attendance.

Paul shared with the group the amount of work he has been doing during the close season to identify and attract the right players to the club.

Whilst progress has not been as swift as he would like he remains confident of completing his squad soon.

Fans also got the chance to see the ongoing progress of the replacement artificial surface.

For those unable to make the launch event, season tickets can now be purchased during office hours from the office at Links Park on 01674 673200 or

Chairman Derek Sim said: “I would like to thank all those fans who have already purchased their season tickets and I would encourage everyone else to take advantage of our Early Bird discounts which ends on July 11.

“We very much hope to bring play-off excitement to Links Park again this season, but of the promotion nature.”

“Everyone at the club is working extremely hard to make this happen, but as the Brora game proved, we can’t do it without the support of our fantastic fan base.

“Season ticket sales are very important to us and really set the tone for our season providing a cash injection at a time when we are looking to build a new squad. I hope therefore that many of you will continue to support your local club and buy a season ticket for the coming year.”

Season tickets will also be available from the club’s newoutlet, The Home Dugout at 72 Murray Street, which officially opens this Saturday at 10am.

To mark the opening, fans will also be able to get their hands of the fantastic new home and away kits for the coming season as well as entering into a prize draw for Hospitality at Links Park.

Proprietor of The Home Dugout and Club Director David Laing explained: “The club has been in need of a presence in the centre of the town for a long time now. I am delighted with the way the store looks and going forward we will be guided by what our customers want. This will hopefully make it easier for our fans and supporters to buy merchandise, purchase hospitality and sponsorship and keep up with all things Montrose FC.”

The Home Dugout, which will be open Thursday, Friday and Saturday 10am to 4:30pm will also stock a selection of golf wear and retro football jerseys.
