In memoriam: George Rooney

We recently heard from Clare, the daughter of legendary and sadly missed former Montrose player George Rooney. This inspired us to share the following photos courtesy of Alan McPherson (you can click each image to view larger on flickr.com).

AGM on April 11th

Glasgow Montrose Chess Club will hold it’s AGM on April 11th this year.  We will be starting at 6:30pm, as there is an ‘A’ Team home fixture on the same night.

Match Report: Montrose A vs. Bearsden A, 27/10/2016

‘A’ Team captain Robin reports on the 27th October fixture vs. Bearsden A:

Bearsden baffled!

Glasgow Montrose A team put up stiff resistance against visitors Bearsden A who were last season’s division one runners up. Out-graded for the second match in a row on 7 of 8 boards a creditable 4-4 draw was the final score. Bearsden took an early point winning on bottom board against new player Babak but Montrose fought back with wins from father and son pairing of Ruairidh and Jonathan. Daniel found Scotland’s Olympiad team number one Andrew Greet too hot to handle. Norman and Bahloul produced creditable draws to bring the score to 3-3. Sam was unfortunate to lose on time before the first time control. This left me for the second match in a row having to win with the last game to finish to square a tie. In the end I mopped up all the pawns to force the concession. 4-4 a wonderful result.
