“McGhee needs some support, there’s no-one backing him up.

Hayes playing it forward, Bell being forced to do it all alone, now forward from Marr, here’s Ritchie, still Andy Ritchie, look at the control…”

 

“That is a marvellous goal from Andy Ritchie. Twenty minutes on the clock and Morton’s supporters come alive. A goal which epitomises the control, the arrogance, the cheek of Andy Ritchie.”

March 22nd - 

 

1989 - Morton 2-2 St. Johnstone (Turner, Robertson)

Scottish Cup Quarter Final. We were 2-1 down with John Boag sent off - lucky to get another bite at this tbh.

 

One of my favourite Morton TV moments here - when we miss the penalty, the camera give a close up of a fan clearly shouting " that's p*ss". Seconds later Dougie makes it 2-2 and the same guy has jumped onto the track to celebrate, being ushered back over by a plod.

1975 - Morton 0-3 Aberdeen

 

1969 - Morton 1-4 Celtic (Allan)

Scottish Cup semi-final. We scored first and then caved in. Hal Stewart invented trolling with the strip he chose for us.

Here is a report on that Cup victory over Hamilton on Saturday March 24, 1945:

 

2nd Cup game (Section ”C”) at home, at Cappielow Park, Greenock

Greenock Morton (0) 1 – 0 (0) Hamilton Academicals

Scorer:  Kelly 

Team: McFeat, Highet, Fyfe, Campbell, Aird, Whyte, Kelly, Garth, Arthur, McAloon, McInnes.

 

Morton played towards Greenock in the first half.  McAloon was sent through as early as the first minute, but a slick back-tackle by Lowe for Hamilton allows Ryan in the Academicals’ goal to punch clear.  A minor siege follows which the visiting team survive without conceding.  McInnes runs past two men for another fleeting Morton attack, but his shot is cleared without troubling the goalkeeper.  Ryan next punches clear a dangerous McInnes cross, before Arthur and Garth go close with a dribble and cross. 

Hamilton have the next chance, with a shot by ex-Scottish international Buchan flying past McFeat’s right post, after neat passing between McCall and McShane.  Garth has the next shot, sending it past the Hamilton left post after a pass from McAloon, with McShane missing in a similar manner at the other end of the pitch for Hamilton.  This led to a Hamilton corner taken by McColl, from which Campbell performs a dramatic diving header to clear. 

 

A strong but too direct Campbell shot is well held by Ryan.  Campbell gets the next chance, shooting past the Hamilton right post.  After a long cross-clearance by Highet, McInnes takes control of the ball and following some good work sends in a whiz-shot that is just stopped by Ryan at the near post.  On the next Hamilton attack, McColl cannot gather the ball before it passes the bye-line, and the ‘goal’ from his subsequent cross, headed home by Clark, is disallowed. 

McAloon is downed in the penalty area, but Whyte sends the resulting penalty flying over the bar.  Morton then do everything but score:  McInnes goes close with a lob, McAloon sends a shot over the bar, Highet goes close, Arthur sends a McInnes cross over the bar and a McAloon header from a Kelly corner is stopped by McGurk on the goal-line, an apparent hand-ball not given.  Arthur sends a shot straight at Ryan, and McShane sends one over Morton’s bar for Hamilton, to end the first half. 

 

HT:  Morton 0 - 0 Hamilton

 

Clark sends in low shot to the left corner of the Morton goal to start the second half, only for a fine diving save from McFeat, who palmed the ball away to concede a corner.  McShane then sends in a whiz, McFeat this time saving neatly on his knees.  McAloon then receives the ball near the left Hamilton corner flag, sending a pass along the by-line to Garth, who has his back to goal.  Garth cleverly flicks the ball over his head and into the path of the in-rushing KELLY, who sends in a low shot from the far side of the penalty area back into the near left corner, bamboozling Ryan. 

 

McColl and McShane both have chances for Hamilton but send them wide left and over the bar.  McAloon then just sends a header over the bar from a Garth cross.  Arthur’s overhead try goes past the right post.  McAloon sends in another strong shot but wide of the mark and then Garth, with only Ryan to beat, waits too long and allows the goalkeeper to smother the ball. 

 

An Arthur header of a Kelly cross is just held by Ryan, and McInnes sends another chance into the side-netting.  McAloon sends a cross from a Kelly free-kick towards Garth, but he can only send a header into the arms of Ryan.  Garth then has another try from the right bye-line, but the angle is too narrow to beat Ryan.  A McInnes header of another Kelly cross is again held by Ryan.  Fyfe then hits a free-kick against the far-right post, the ball rebounding behind Ryan before being cleared, to end the game.
 

Best Morton player:  Campbell

March 25th - 

 

2017 - Morton 0-1 Dunfermline

Unbeaten home record goes - one day short of the year. No idea what Gaston was doing at the goal.

 

 

2014 - Cowdenbeath 3-0 Morton

Thnakfully, there's no footage of this one.

 

2007 - Forfar 0-4 Morton (Greacen 2, Templeman, Weatherson)

 

 

2006 - Morton 0-4 Ayr United

Play-off place secured and no chance of catching Gretna, McInally later said that he believed the team downed tools that day.

2000 - Livingston 1-0 Morton

 

 

1995 - Morton 2-2 Stirling Albion (Rajamaki)

A goal down early on, Marko got us in front, the equaliser a great solo effort. Then a low Stirling cross flicked off Derek Lilley's foot, flew 20 yards and gave Wylie no chance.

 

1989 - Airdrieonians 2-1 Morton (Spencer)

Airdrie's 1st goalscorer was loaned to a junior club. He was borrowed back for this game, scored, and was sent back to the juniors. Never played for Airdrie again.
