Contribution to the website of Montrose FC
Soccer Mad Boffin Dr Alex Gillett has contributed an article about his Grandfather, footballer Giles 'Gil' Gillett, to the website of Scottish club Montrose FC.
After national service with the BAOR (British Army of the Rhine) Giles played professionally in the late 1940s/early 1950s, initially with English team Middlesbrough before transferring back to his native Scotland where he spent two seasons with Leith Athletic before signing for Montrose.
Included on the website are digitized archival documents including a copy of Giles' Montrose contract and player registration, as well as a match programme (Montrose vs Heart of Midlothian FC) and photographs, all of which may be of interest to people researching Scottish or post- WW2 football
