Duxbury’s move was clearly money motivated and his agent sold him short. Montrose was moving to a higher level of football and went with Jim’s blessings as I understand it, and got us a fee as he’d signed a new contract during the season.
No hard feelings towards Montrose from me and while I don’t share the same level of ill will towards Duxbury as you do the circumstances of his leaving did leave a bitter taste. I’d happily see Montrose come back if he can find his fitness but Dux burned a bridge with the way he left. Maybe if he’s left his agent I could see it.
