Match Preview - Morton vs Raith Rovers (18th September)

Morton vs Raith Rovers - Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. Morton welcome Raith Rovers to Cappielow tomorrow, attempting to claim their first point in four Championship matches.

The Flying Finns

(Photo- www.tellhimhespele.com)   The Flying Finns   by Russell Gordon   Tuesday's deadline day drama certainly had us all glued to our phones, in what was perhaps the most exciting day of positive movement in and out of Cappielow since the inception of the windows, around a generation ago. Even when Douglas Rae opened the purse strings in the January of 2015 to bolster our promotion charge with the signings of Peter MacDonald, Ross Forbes and the re-signing of Declan McM

Match Preview - Hamilton vs Morton (Championship 7th August)

Hamilton vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon. 522 days. It’s been one year, five months and four days since Morton supporters were able to cheer on their team away from home. Three hundred fans will make their way to Lanarkshire hoping that Gus MacPherson’s men can pick up their first Championship win of the season. New Douglas Park has never been the most attractive away trip for Ton fans, nor has it proven a happy hunting ground historically for the Greenock side. That said, g

(Photo- The Scotsman) MorTEN- Whatever Happened To the Likely Lads? by Russell Gordon Saturday sees Morton return to New Douglas Park, Hamilton on league duty for the first time in over seven years, with only a surprise, Ross Forbes-inspired Betfred Cup victory en route to a Hampden semi-final in 2016 since that previous visit. Never a happy hunting ground since it opened in 2001, with only a late Alex Williams winner in the 2003-04 collapse season, a victory on Valentine's Day 20

This was not a consequence unique to Morton, with Ross County and Dumbarton withdrawing from their matches against Forfar

Morton vs Dunfermline – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon Familiar is not a word we’ve used particularly often in the last eighteen months or so, having been replaced with the word unprecedented. Cappielow on Saturday will have a foot in both camps as the age-old anticipation of the start of a league campaign meets restrictions imposed to combat the spread of COVID. Face masks, staggered entry times and social distancing are unfamiliar requirements to observe our national sport, however t

Chris Millar- A Tribute

(Photo- Gary Bradley) Chris Millar- A Tribute by Russell Gordon   With another new season approaching, and the League Cup group stages taking on the role of the season's curtain raiser in recent years, Morton will welcome some unfamiliar guests next week in Lowland League "runners-up" East Kilbride. However, as we're well aware, their newly signed club captain certainly doesn't fit into such a category amongst the Cappielow faithful. This conveniently gives me a tenuous link to w
