Tickets frozen - but captain goes

Montrose Football Club has announced a price freeze on their season tickets for the forthcoming season.

Supporters who pay for their tickets by Monday, June 25, will receive a 10 per cent discount on their ticket with names and monies to be handed into director John D Crawford’s office at 72 New Wynd, Montrose, telephone 01674 67672064.

Season tickets are normally priced at £180 for adult, OAP/Under-16 £100 with Willie Johnston Lounge members paying £300 and £195 for concessions.

Those fans who purchase a ticket before June 25 will receive the discount with adults paying £160, OAP/Under 16s £90 and Willie Johnston Lounge members £270 and £175.

Local Primary School children will be able to purchase a season ticket through their school that will give them free admission to all matches providing they are accompanied by a paying adult.

New Gable Endies’ manager Stuart Garden has also confirmed a list of pre-season matches for his side.

Montrose will be away to Second Division Stenhousemuir on Saturday, July 7, with the match kicking off at 2pm.

They will then play another Second Division outfit, Angus rivals Forfar Athletic, at Links Park on Tuesday, July 10, followed by a closed door fixture at home to St Johnstone Under 19s.

On Saturday, July 14, Montrose are at home to neighbours Brechin City.

The Gable Endies travel to play Dundee United at St Andrews on Tuesday, July 17, before facing Highland League Inverurie Locos two days later at Links Park.

Montrose’s final pre-season match is again at home to Lochee United on Saturday, July 21.

Admission for the friendly fixtures is £5 for adults and £2 for OAP/under-16s. Season tickets will be valid for the friendlies.

Mr Garden has also announced that captain Douglas Cameron has turned down terms on a one-year contract and is to leave Links Park.

Cameron missed only two matches for the club last season both due to suspension and made 68 appearances for Montrose since he joined in 2011 from Australian side Sunshine George Cross.
