Friendly result – Larkhall Thistle 4 Petershill 3

The Jags got a great result yesterday with a win in the friendly against the highest placed Central team in the juniors at the moment.

Larkhall Thistle v Lesmahagow, 27th December 2014

This was the only fixture on the cards from the First Division today and that gave the chance of the winner moving up to second place in the league. An unlikely turn of events for Thistle after their poor start to the league and this game had it all as it swung one way then the other.

Larkhall Thistle 3 Thorniewood 2

Thistle got a bit of practice in with this friendly at Dalziel Park against Thorniewood and more than matched their higher league opponents with a good win. Graham Gracie and Alan Colquhoun were fit to play and David McPhee slotted in well in the right back position, getting the third and decisive goal as it turned out.

Ex-Thistle players Alan Fleming and Joe Doyle were the centre half pairing for Thorniewood.

Next game is on Saturday at home to Lesmahagow, weather permitting of course.


Game OFF

Today’s game with St Anthony’s has been postponed due to a flooded park.

Next game is next Saturday 27th against Lesmahagow so switch off the old films for a couple of hours and get down to Gasworks to see the derby!
