Last year the Inverclyde Community Development Trust worked closely with local school pupils, teachers, players and fans in order to highlight and celebrate the history of Greenock Morton.
In the short space of time since the project began, we have gathered a great deal of information on the club and on the town of Greenock in general. the conclusion to this project was the highly successful book titled "We are Morton" Which is still available for free at 7/12 John wood Street Port Glasgow.
As the Morton project is now complete we begin to move forward with our Identity project (focusing on the experiences of migrants passing through or settling in Inverclyde). We are in the process of sorting through the mountains of information and artefacts we have acquired. While doing so we have stumbled across a replica shirt from the years 1969-71.
Rather than have the shirt lay around the office we have decided that it's only right that it go to you, the fans.
So, if you want to be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is answer the following questions:
- Name the founding member of Morton who owned a shop in the area of Greenock where The Wee Dublin End stands today.
- Who is the man in the above photograph?
- Which former player scored a record breaking hat-trick in the 1968/69 season? What nationality was he?
- Which highlander celebrated his Olympic victory with a celebratory lap around Cappielow?
- From which language does the name "Cappielow" or "Capellow" originate?
Please send your answers to: firstname.lastname@example.org along with your name and telephone number so that we can contact you if you win.
Competition closes at noon on Friday 20 April 2012.
