Last weekend was an emotional one for Scott Johnston, who played his final game for Montrose FC after four great years at Links Park.

Scott joined the Club from East Stirling in 2011 and made 172 first team appearances scoring 17 goals, one of which was in the historic ‘Pyramid Play Off’ victory against Brora Rangers back in May.

Renowned for his effort, commitment and determination, Scott has played in almost every position over the years with the only exceptions being centre half and goalkeeper.

A new life beckons for Scott now in London where he recently started a new job.

Such is his dedication, for the last few weeks he has been commuting every weekend from down south to help the team out until the transfer window opened.

Manager Paul Hegarty described Scott as a great pro and said he would be sorely missed.

On presenting Scott with his farewell gifts Club Chairman Derek Sim thanked him for his years of service and wished him every success for the future.
