Truth In Reid Rumours

In the last couple of days posts on the Pie and Bovril and greenockmorton.org forums have both linked Morton with a move for free agent Alan Reid.

I thought these were just the usual rumours that circulate on football messageboards until I read an article in today's Scottish Sun. The article in question is about how all the players in the Ton and Partick Thistle squads are growing moustaches for the Movember campaign ahead of Saturday's match between the two sides. The story is accompanied by pictures of both squads sporting fake moustaches and Alan Reid is right behind James Grady in the Morton photograph (pictured, below).

Bryn Halliwell - who was with the club for a month at the start of the season - is also in the picture.

Reid made two sub appearances for us as a trialist last year. He later attacked Davie Irons in The Sun, claiming he said he'd get a contract then failed to deliver: greenockmortonfc.blogspot.com - Shafted.

He also had a spell on loan with us in 2001/02 in which he made 11 appearances and scored 2 goals.
