Yeah, like I thought. You can see clearly that the curved bit of the Dynamo used to extend as far as the end of the pitch.
i can't quite make it out as the video is so grainy, but is the beach end terraced with railway sleepers there? It could be concrete but the video isn't clear. My first game was around 1983 and I can't remember if it was concrete there or not. 

Railway sleepers at the Beach End and right round to the start of the covered South Terrace.

And slippy as hell when wet!

The new stand was up by the time I got Links Park for the first time back in 1995 but like a few other posters what a cracking ground it looked like before the redevelopment.

Where is decent for a pre match scran. I’ll be driving 3 hours from Ayrshire so will food is the number one stop in Montrose.

Sharky's would be my recommendation.

You could try Roos Leap down by the golf course .. if food is the priority

Northern Vaults or Hartz at Grey Harlings would be my recommendations but there's plenty of choices in the town

As we are going full food guide for Montrose, you would be hard pushed to beat Diamond Lils in Ferryden for food. South side of river and a cracking pint and great coffee as well. Quirky and small.

There was no proper toilets either. You just had to pish behind a wall in the overgrown wasteland behind the side terrace.


There were two concrete blocks behind the terracing with nothing in them apart from a drainage trough all the way round, which didn't drain. Most folk just pished against the wall outside.

As stated Picture House probably best bet, it's a Bellhaven Wetherspoons type of place beside the railway station and just off the High St.
You can park in the Tesco which is 10 seconds drive away.

Those concrete blocks always looked sinister on a cold wet evening. Like Pennywise from It was lurking inside waiting for a victim.

Pishing against the wall felt a lot safer.

'Most sinister places to go for a pish in old Scottish football grounds' would actually make a decent thread for the top 5s forum.

I'd definitely nominate that small bit of waste ground behind the uncovered away terracing at Somerset, that looks out onto a larger derelict area of waste ground. You feel like you've walked through a portal into a harrowing post apocalyptic future.

The actual toilet block for the home terracing at old Bayview was a pretty horrifying experience as well. Dark, foreboding, brutalist and with unsettling dimensions, it felt a bit like a cross between a Hellraiser film and some H. R. Geiger art work.

How are the two lads from Saints - Ballantyne and Struthers - getting on at Links Park? 

I see the futures of Niang and Macbeath have already been sorted out but there doesn't seem to be word on the other two yet. Is Stewart Petrie likely to want to keep them on? 

After the big progress that Ali McCann made at Stranraer last season, hopefully this spell will have been equally as beneficial for this pair.

Apparently he is in discussions with them and St Johnstone about keeping them on. I think Cammy is a really good player and provides a lot of energy to our midfield. Struthers had to wait a while to get his chance but has now started three in a row I think. Doing a lot of good things, pacey, holds the ball up well. At times i cant work out if he is a striker or a winger.

Just reading about the boys Johnston and Callaghan. Naughty naughty. It would appear to be a pretty serious incident seeing as they've been ordered to go back in March.
