Morton sacked their groundsman and have been training on that pitch.
There won’t be much football played tonight.......
The dad-- Sandy pays £50k per year to Morton youth development. Also, his companies, McGills , Blair's and ARC repairs contribute sponsorship cash. His manager at Blair's windows( Alex Gray) is on the Morton board.When crowds were allowed Easdale would be in the directors lounge and seating area.His son isn't very good and a few managers have left after being "persuaded" to play him.!Interesting the two number 22 on the bench for both teams - Our Lewis Mayo for the Pars and Easdale for Morton. Now where have I heard that name before. Wonder how much he is being paid
Thanks mate, appreciate it..
Fascinating to read stories like that as most of the time now it’s as if football didn’t exist before sky sports.Apparently he played a blinder, although i think they could only hold on for so long.

Nice that BBC did a tribute to the posters dad. I’m sure he must have had some great fitba stories. I loved asking my dad about games and players in the 60s and still dip into books like Rangers - The New Era to get some understanding of games back then.
He’s been there about 15/16 years, it’s always great start and end of the season but as soon as it hits winter in Greenock the pitch suffers big time.Cracking grounds man, Morton usually have a good pitch.
Any idea how long he’s been there, played at the Cappielow 8ish years ago & it was like a bowling green?.
He was playing for stenhousemuir one time, think it was against Alloa , anyway my dad dislocated his shoulder really early in the game and got stretchered off, no subs in those days, someone else went in goal and when they were carrying my old boy into the dressing room someone booted the door open and hit his shoulder back in as he was lying on the stretcher lol ... he went back on the park and played up front and scored a goal lol .. they got beat 2-1 unfortunately..Apparently he played a blinder, although i think they could only hold on for so long.
