Poster Competition Results

In keeping with our policy of promoting Primary Schools football in the local area we recently ran a poster competition to celebrate Mortons Third Division title success.

On offer was a first prize of �0 worth of football equipment, with two runners-up prizes each of �0 worth of football equipment. Individual or collective entries were allowed and a marvellous response saw twelve schools take part with 175 entries in total.

Morton club captain Derek Collins agreed to judge the entries and he had a difficult task whittling the entries down to a final three, but after careful selection chose the following:

  1. St Patricks
  2. Lady Alice
  3. St Josephs
Derek remarked that his chosen winning entry, submitted by St Josephs Primary, encapsulated the final day of the season.

Thirty children from the three winning schools were invited along to Cappielow last Thursday where they watched John McCormack put the squad through their paces in preparation for the game against Airdrie on Saturday. The kids then had their photos taken with the Third Division trophy and then it was out onto the trackside to get some autographs and have their pictures taken with the likes of David McGregor, Jani Uotinen, Phil Cannie and Alex Williams - a firm favourite with the youngsters!

John McCormack also made time to smile for the camera and posed for photos with many of the children. With Derek Collins still involved in the training session, Warren Hawke was only too glad to stand in and, once finished, Derek immediately came over to join the rest of his teammates, much to the delight of the children. Each pupil who entered the competition was awarded a signed certificate by Derek Collins. A Morton crest football plus 100 慿ids for a quid� tickets, purchased by the Trust, will be distributed to each competing school.

Overall, it was a most enjoyable day out for all involved and hopefully more schools will be invited along to Cappielow throughout the season. We would hope that projects like this enhance the name of the Trust and go a little bit of the way to help rebuild the Morton brand name in the local community.
