“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.”

Derek McInnes makes his last appearance for Morton. Our offside goal should have stood. Second half of the clip is missing.

This was dreadful stuff.

 

1978 - Morton 3-1 Dundee United (Ritchie 3)

This was terrific stuff.

Here is a lengthy report on the away game at Hamilton on November 11, 1944 from my dad’s wartime diary:

8th League Trophy match away, at Douglas Park, Hamilton

Hamilton Accies (2) 4 – 2 (0)  Greenock Morton

Scorers:  Crum, Whyte (pen) 
Team:  Johnstone, Maley, Higgins, Campbell, Aird, Whyte, McInnes, McAloon, Crum, Garth, Kelly. 

Morton played away from Greenock in the first half.  Maley gave away a corner to McColl. The corner kick goes to Dougan, his drive held by Johnstone. Whyte slammed a shot well wide, and a collection of offsides followed, frustrating Morton’s attacks.  Maley ran across the field to cut off a Jones break, and Aird then headed clear from another dangerous situation.  Kelly then crossed to Crum who shot just a yard wide of the left post.  A McInnes break led to two quick but unfruitful corners by him, and McAloon then sends a shot wide of the right post with a clear sight of goal.  A Morton cross-field passing movement ends with McInnes sending a shot over the bar.  Hamilton then went very close, a Dougan volley hitting the far left post, Burns missing from the rebound and Johnstone diving at his feet to deny a third chance.

A Crum break earned a corner, but Kelly could only send his shot from McInnes’ cross over the far upright.  A very sharp shot by Herd for Hamilton has Johnstone making a full yard and a half of ground to make a marvel save with one hand, then smother the ball on the goal-line.  Accy appeals for a goal are properly ruled down.  At the other end, a curling Kelly cross was just too far for Crum, and Ryan in the Hamilton goal then pulled off a very good anticipatory save from a Campbell whiz.  Herd then heads a Campbell cross over the bar, and Ryan from the goal kick can only find McAloon, but his return shot goes just wide.

Hamilton then lay siege to the Morton goal, with Maley and Aird heading saviours.  McCall has a fine shot tipped past the post by a sliding Johnstone, and Herd sends a shot well over after a fine move.  The deadlock was broken when Burns scored from a penalty, low to Johnstone’s right, after Maley got his legs in the way of Jones.  McColl then got the ball in the Morton net from a Dougan cross-shot but was offside.  A long but threatening Lowe shot heading for the top left corner of the Morton net was just intercepted by a diving Johnstone. Dougan for Hamilton was then injured and has to limp for most of the rest of the game.  Whyte heads the ball past the post from a McInnes corner, and Ryan jumps over his own bye-line in avoiding a Kelly charge.  Just on half-time, a curving McColl cross was tipped into the air by Johnstone, who loses sight of the ball, which falls to Herd who knocks it home for Hamilton’s second goal.     

A low shot to Ryan by McAloon opens the second half.  A Kelly corner starts a siege that involves two blocked shots and finally Kelly sending a shot over the bar. McInnes then shoots past the right post.  Injured Dougan commits three successive fouls on Whyte.  Aird can then only send on out-field pass to Jones, who runs through to score at speed low to Johnstone’s left for Hamilton’s third goal.  Worse was to come, when a longish hard shot from Burns was mis-handled by Johnstone, who ends up palming it into the net for Hamilton’s fourth. 

Whyte whams a free-kick over the bar.   Herd breaks through for Hamilton, but Johnstone stops the shot that was going just over his head, catching and clearing the ball.  A nice hard Garth try went into the side-netting, and then Morton do finally score, with CRUM converting a Kelly cross from the left with a shot under the diving Hamilton goalkeeper Ryan.  Hamilton replied with a fine shot by Herd, Johnstone diving to the far left post to save.  Jones sends a shot over for Hamilton before a McAloon wham to just above the goalie is tipped by him onto the underside of the crossbar.  When the ball comes down, goalie Ryan turns over to get the seemingly certain goal clear. 

Morton did get a second goal following a dirty charge by Anderson at McInnes’ back.  WHYTE sent the resulting penalty home via the bottom of the left upright.  The Accies forwards were now visibly tired, and an Aird header from a free kick by McInnes went past the left post.  Lowe for Hamilton is then injured in a spectacular clearing header away from McInnes after a Campbell centre.  A long Jones drive is then sent over the bar by Higgins, and a weak corner by Dougan for Hamilton ends the game.

Best Morton player:  Aird.

Janne Lindberg's first goal for Morton.

 

1988 - St. Johnstone 4-2 Morton (Alexander, Turner)

My first ever trip to Muirton Park. 3-0 down after an hour with fans drifting to the exits already. Suddenly Alexander scored a peach, Turner tapped in a cross and everyone was rushing back the fence for the comeback. Saints scored a 4th to kill the game - defensively we'd been dreadful, but McGraw promised we'd never play as badly as that again...only for the next game to be even worse.

The slide continued.

 

 

 

2003 - East Fife 0-0 Morton

The day after seeing Scotland beat the Netherlands at Hampden in an enthralling 1st leg of the play-offs, we dragged ourselves to Methil to watch this s***e. One of our group was so hungover from the previous day that he left after 20 minutes to sleep it off in the car, missing nothing of note.

 

2002 - Albion Rovers 2-1 Morton (Cannie)

David Hopkin was given temporary charge after Dave McPherson's departure and immediately took himself out of the running for the job after overseeing us throwing away a 1-0 lead on a potato field.

 

1996 - St. Mirren 1-0 Morton

Derek Collins gifting the goal. Really ought to have gotten a point from this one.

 

 

1991 - Montrose 1-1 Morton (Mathie)

 

1985 - Kilmarnock 3-0 Morton

We slip to the foot of the 1st Division, having been in the top flight a year ago.

November 18th - 

 

2000 - Ayr United 1-1 Morton (Curran)

 

1995 - Morton 0-3 St. Mirren 

Our first game after Derek McInnes left and the signs were out that it was going to cost us. Derek Collins had a perfectly good goal disallowed at 0-0. The press had other things to talk about.

1987 - Hibernian 0-0 Morton

Our first point away from home, against the same team who gave us our first point of the season.

Always enjoyed playing Hearts at Scapa. Rarely dull.

“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.”

Harry Curran’s last minute equaliser at Somerset Park was the absolute peak moment of the bad old days. Club on it’s absolute knees against what was then one of the best teams in the league and scraping a draw well into injury time right in front of the Morton fans.

Absolute SCENES that day.
