Thistle continued their pre-season preparations with a stiff test against Superleague Premier Division Petershill tonight. The Jags were looking to improve on the shaky start they made on Saturdaywhen they lost three home goals to Abbey Vale.
Thistle got back into pre-season action less than a week after the World Cup final, in the return fixture against Dumfries side Abbey Vale. Thistle had won 5-0 in the corresponding first friendly last season but didn’t have it all their own way this time.
Thistle handed over four sets of kit to Airdrie Trust Kit Amnesty on behalf of Kit Aid, for full story and pictures see the link below.
Thistle now have 15 signed players in the squad for the forthcoming season and are holding trials with a view to adding to the squad before the start of the season.
The following players have left the club:
David Aguilera García (returned to play in Spain), Scott McLachlan (re-signed for Royal Albert), Hugh Kelly (signed for Fauldhouse United),
Robert Borg and Adam Cassidy (finished playing), Stuart McIntosh (reinstated amateur)
Thanks and best wishes to all from all at the club for the future.
The club are delighted that they have today been able to donate approximately 90 jerseys that they no longer use to the charity Kit Aid.
Kit Aid supply football strips to deprived adults and children, mainly in African countries. The strips donated by Larkhall Thistle include both first team kits from previous seasons and youth sizes from the days when we ran boys teams.
As there are nearly 5 full sets of jerseys, we could have actual teams playing with either the red and white or blue/black tops with the Thistle badge on them.
The Larkhall Thistle Annual General Meeting was held on Monday 16th June and the officials were elected as follows:
President: Chris Lenson
Vice President: Steve Johnston
Secretary: Fiona Tierney
Treasurer: Hugh Kerr
Season Tickets will be priced as last year – adults £60, Juveniles / Senior Citizens £30. Please note that this may change if the SJFA decide to increase gate prices at their AGM.
Thistle made a presentation to Spanish star David Garcia – who was leaving to return to Spain.
The Player of the Year awards were held yesterday in the club house, click on the link below for details and photos.
This year’s AGM is on Monday 16th June at 7.30 pm.
A good attendance of members is requested.
Thistle and Maryhill produced an entertaining last game of the season despite having nothing to play for, the Jags made a few changes but although they didn’t reach the heights of last week, ended the season with a decent performance.
