Morton Club Together (MCT) has today announced that another significant milestone has been reached as we approach the end of 2020.
Following the £10,000 payment made to the club this week, MCT has now contributed £100,000 towards the Greenock Morton first team budget.
Having only been set up in April 2019, huge progress has been made in the 18 months since.
With nearly 700 members, MCT have been able to commit to providing £10,000 towards the first team budget during the 2020/21 season, a significant amount during a difficult period for all football clubs.
MCT Director and Founder Graham McLennan said, “To have contributed £100,000 already to the Greenock Morton first team budget is a phenomenal achievement and a testament to the dedication and commitment of our members.
“2020 has been a difficult year for us all, and for our members to have continued their support, and indeed increased it, has been overwhelming.
“We are extremely grateful to everyone who continues to support and are looking forward to an exciting future for Greenock Morton.”
Fellow MCT Director Graham Barr added, “This time last year, we had 370 members and were able to contribute £6,000 per month to the Greenock Morton first team budget.
“One year on, we have reached the significant milestone of £100,000 contributed and we have nearly double our membership to just under 700.
“The growth of MCT has been exceptional over the last 18 months, and we are excited to see this continue into 2021.”
Current Morton Chairman Crawford Rae commented, “What a fantastic milestone MCT have reached and what a superb figure that the fans have put into Greenock Morton over the last 15 months.
“A massive congratulations to everyone at MCT and huge gratitude from the Club.”
