Important Match Information

Before tomorrow’s cinch Championship opener against Ayr United, a minute of silence will be held as we remember a true Morton great, Benny Rooney.

Benny was inducted into the Greenock Morton Hall of Fame earlier this year and is regarded as one of the best ever Morton managers.

The thoughts and condolences of all at the club go out to Benny’s friends and family.
