Forbes Inglis has lived and breathed the Gable Endies for most of his life and from the moment his father joined the Club's Board in the mid 1950s he was probably destined to write this book. Over 248 pages in Goals and Gable Ends he tells the story of the Montrose FC and their almost continual fight to survive financially.
He also describes how one of the Club's international players has had his success attributed to someone else, writes about a betting scandal and explains the connection between the burgh of Montrose and Russian football.
