Programme Sales

Alistair Wyllie’s love for Morton is so great that he’s prepared to miss the first half of every single home fixture here at Cappielow.

It is a tough sacrifice to make but the devoted fan knows it is for the greater good of a club that he has volunteered for since 1973.

Just 17 when he started helping out with the Ton, he’s done everything from selling bingo tickets, lottery tickets, and flag day sales.

The 59-year-old from Skelmorlie arrives at 11.45am to look after the 50/50 draw ticket sales and programme selling, with around 20 youngsters, all keen Morton fans, helping with the selling.

Alistair said: “You get to know the managers over the years; the nicest was Jock Stein, who always bought a ticket. He was a supporters’ manager. Most of them say hello but few would buy a ticket these days.

“Anything I am asked to do I will for anyone at Cappielow; it’s part of my life and I love it. You meet a lot of good people. They are diehards but they are genuine folk.”

“It’s for the love of the club, but don’t get me wrong – I also love the closed season. It’s nice to get a break!”
