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

MorTEN- Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads?

(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

League Cup Group Stage Summary

Premier Sports Cup 2021/22 Summary – by Dean McKinnon. Morton’s season got off to a somewhat troublesome beginning as pre-match COVID testing hindered The Ton’s curtain-raising clash at Stair Park. The match against Stranraer was forfeited as news broke that a substantial number of first team players faced a ten-day isolation period following positive tests in the squad. This was not a consequence unique to Morton, with Ross County and Dumbarton withdrawing from their matches against Forfar

Match Preview - Morton vs Dunfermline (Championship 31st July)

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

Never In Doubt.

(Photo- Gary Bradley) Never In Doubt.   A Review of Morton's 2020-21 season, Part Three. By Russell Gordon.   Montrose away it was then, after it had looked like Morton were going to be forced into renewing hostilities with old pals, Falkirk. On paper an easier tie, but given Falkirk's spectacular (not to mention hilarious) collapse, that possibly wasn't the case. Morton made their second trip in just over a week up to Angus and could have been forgiven for having a bit of

(Photo- Gary Bradley) Departures, Defeats, Draws and Dismissals.   A Review of Morton's 2020-21 Season, Part Two. By Russell Gordon   As 2020 came to an end and 2021 began, Morton could actually look forward to the new year with a degree of optimism, in spite of all the uncertainty in the background. Sitting in a comfortable position in the table, and with a fixture list that looked quite favourable, even the most pessimistic of observers would've looked upon the month of

Storm Clouds Are Gathering...

(Photo- Gary Bradley) Storm Clouds are Gathering... A Review of Morton's 2020-21 Season, Part One. By Russell Gordon   Well, that's it finished, then. Another season of struggle and a seventh consecutive season in the Championship awaits for Morton. When we look back in years to come, we'll see a ninth placed finish and a comfortable play off campaign that secured our Championship status with the minimum of fuss. But boy, that doesn't even scratch the surface of one of the mo

Match Preview - Montrose vs Morton (Championship Playoff Semi Final)

Montrose vs Morton – Match Preview by Dean McKinnon After Friday’s disappointing stalemate against Arbroath, it was confirmed that Morton would be the Championship’s representatives in the relegation playoffs. The 0-0 draw encapsulated The Ton’s season thus far, with a lack of attacking prowess handicapping the Greenock side as they failed to register a single shot on target in the ninety minutes. MacPherson will be forced into changing his defensive setup as club captain Sean McGinty
