Mon­trose’s He­li­copter Satur­day

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

MON­TROSE sealed the Lad­brokes League Two ti­tle in dra­matic fash­ion on Satur­day with a 1-1 draw with El­gin City enough to see them over the line.

The Gable Endies went into the fi­nal day three points ahead of clos­est ri­vals Peter­head who downed Ed­in­burgh City 2-1 to push Ste­wart Petrie’s side to the wire.

How­ever, they held out and the he­li­copter car­ry­ing the tro­phy landed in An­gus to crown Mon­trose for the first time in over 30 years.

Petrie said: “Three years ago, the club were on the brink of los­ing their Scot­tish League place and to get where we are now has taken a lot of ef­fort from many peo­ple.

“The league win is a proud thing for the club.”
