Larkhall Thistle produced a performance of real heart and determination against their higher league rivals today and lost out by the narrowest of margins. The Jags were cheered off the park for their efforts by a crowd who appreciated that every one of them had given everything.
Thistle romped to a big win today against struggling Perthshire. After a first half performance that saw the Jags in front but not entirely set the heather on fire, they blew the Shire away with a tremendous second half showing.

Bobby Wilson was a Scottish Schoolboy international who joined Airdrie from Larkhall Thistle in 1943, he then appears to have rejoined Thistle as a coach when he finished playing – probably in the mid 1950s. He was also at Workington AFC.
Do you have any more information about Bobby, especially what job he did, and if he is still alive?
Neil Fissler is a football journalist in London doing research for a Who’s Who on Workington AFC and any help would be appreciated so if you know anything at all about Bobby Wilson please reply using the comment box below or email ian @ larkhallthistle.co.uk
Thistle made their first visit to Dunterlie Park since the teams were both in the Super League Premier Division in season 2005/2006 and came away on the wrong end of a scoreline that more than flattered the home team.
