Larkhall Thistle v Glasgow Perthshire 22nd February 2014


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

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 @

Arthurlie v Larkhall Thistle 8th February 2014

Stuart McIntosh challenges for the ball
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.

Larkhall Thistle v Shotts – Game Off

Today’s game with Shotts has been postponed. Thistle were due to play Shotts in the West of Scotland Cup today but Shotts are playing in the Scottish Cup, which takes priority so the game is off. There are no teams in the league available to play as all of them already have games scheduled so no game today.

Next game is Arthurlie away on Saturday 8th February.
