Monty memorial collection

Club look to suitable memorial in memory of Monty

Martin James, Shrewsbury Town's supporter liaison officer, has been asked if donations can be made to the club for a memorial to Michael Evans, know better by many of his fellow Town fans as Monty.
Monty's funeral will take place at Montgomery Church this coming Thursday, January 30 at 11am (sat nav SY15 6PT). 
Martin said: "There will be a collection at the funeral itself, but if other supporters would like to make a direct donation they can do this in one of two ways. 
"By coming into reception at the Greenhous Meadow and leaving the donation for my attention, or at the Brentford game when we will have collection buckets at each of the buffets and in reception.

"Once all monies have been collected I will announce the amount raised and I will be in touch with supporters who were close friends and acquaintances of Monty down the years to discuss what suitable memorial should be funded." 
Monty made many friends through his support of Shrewsbury Town and would often walk to matches from his home in Montgomery.
He sadly died earlier this month.
