    In aid of Greenock Morton Youth Academy Saturday 15 November 2014 in Greenock Town Hall

    The supporters trust in conjunction with the community trust is establishing Morton Hall of Fame whereby club legends both from the distant and not so distant past will be on an annual basis. It is intended that this will be annual event but for this inaugural dinner a selection committee have nominated a number players, some of whom will be admitted automatically and some of whom will be selected by a public vote conducted by the Greenock Telegraph.

    The dinner will be attended by many of the players being nominated as well as living relatives of some players of bygone eras and will be hosted by Scottish Sun Columnist Des McKeown who describes himself as “stationery salesman formerly a stationary fullback!”

    Tickets for this event are priced at £45 or £400 for a table of ten and we hope that you will be able to support us by taking tickets. The proceeds of the evening are for the Morton Youth Academy and it seems appropriate that an event honouring past players supports development of future Morton Stars!

    Bookings can be made through the Community Trust Office at Cappielow, telephone 01475 731949. Payment can also be made by electronic transfer to:

    Please email nickrobinson@practiser.co.uk with details of any electronic payment.

    We hope you are able to join us and look forward to seeing you.

    We are delighted to announce that – as of last night’s AGM – club legend Andy Ritchie has accepted an invitation to join the Supporters’ Trust as the Trust Patron. Andy succeeds Warren Hawke in the role. As well as being an outstanding figurehead for the Trust, Andy has a wealth of experience in football, both on and off the pitch, as a player, a scout, a coach, a manager, a general manager and in the media. His input will therefore be invaluable in advising the Trust on football matters.

    For an interview with Andy about his role with the Supporters’ Trust, and the supporters’ role in Morton’s bid for promotion, see the exclusive interview in today’s Greenock Telegraph.
