 6th goal against Darvel - animated

12th February: Thistle made a bad start to the season; they worked hard and played well, but had no luck - and no wins, often losing by a single late goal. To break the spell, Saturday before Christmas they notched up their first victory away against Beith, who they whipped by 2 goals to nil! This shot them from bottom of the table to a more respectable 3rd from bottom. After the win against Cumbernauld on the 28th, a draw against Shotts and a win against Hurlford through a spectacular goal by keeper Meechan, they can continue to climb up the table over the next weeks. But the last 2 matches away, they again lost by just the one goal, last time to leaders Troon (where I was born!). They are 12 points now behind the leaders Troon (with 25 from 13), though to my way of calculation Bellshill are the real leaders still with 17 points from 7 starts.

Latest Thistle Squad: Kenny Meechan, Billy Davidson, Jim George(jnr), John Sheridan, G. Sheridan, Scott Cameron, Alan Colsh, Scott Barrie, Michael Hart, Billy Ferguson, Leonard Marshall. Subs: Hannah, Robert Wraith, McIntyre. Manager: Jim George, Coach: Gerry Meighan. President: Andy McPherson
Other players in or previously in the squad: David Fulton, Gow, D. Meechan, Gordon Smith, Alan Blaikie, Stewart Hendren, Stuart Gray, Clark, Scott Cameron.
