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).

Last Thurday night, Glasgow Montrose ‘A’ team, winners of Glasgow League Division Two, received their shield and individual awards at small but moving ceremony at club headquarters.

Richard Evans, a former member of GMCC, just sent me the following uncannily accurate vignette from RAFA days (BTW, Chris’ shoulders really do move like this when he laughs…):

Some photos of Glasgow Montrose Chess Club’s final night of the 2007/8 season can be found here (flickr.com).

GMCC was displaced from it’s (former) premises by some bagpipe playing types, so we repaired to the nearby Hogshead on Woodlands Road.  This proved a blessing in disguise, as a very enjoyable evening of al fresco chess & beer ensued…
