Maryhill v Larkhall Thistle 24th May 2014
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.

Benburb v Larkhall Thistle 17th May 2014

Benburb v Larkhall Thistle 17-05-2014
Benburb decided to let the fans in for free today but the small travelling contingent from Larkhall would have gladly paid to see the kind of performance the Jags produced.

It could have been a drab end of season affair but Thistle had other ideas and got full revenge for their recent home hammering from the Bens.

Thistle came from behind and blew Burgh away with four goals in a devastating seven minute second half spell, but only after the visitors had gone down to 10 men.

Nothing to play for, but…

Thistle are in seventh place in the league and as has become normal have more games left than anybody else with three still to play. If they win them all they will hold on to 7th spot but can’t finish any higher, a disappointing end to what looked like a promising campaign for most of the season.

Each week, the match report has nominated a Man of the Match and this has been compiled into a table for the season so far, based on two points for MoM and one for anybody else mentioned in the Best for Thistle on the Day summary.

So it’s no consolation for not having promotion to go for, but with three games to go most of the first team squad are still in with a shout. Here’s how the table looks after the Benburb game:

MoM – Website
Innes 10
Gracie 9
Kelly 9
Brown 8
McLachlan 8
Reynolds 7
McEwan 6
Cassidy 6
Garcia 4
Canning 4
Moss 3
Marshall 3
McKeever 2
Clarke 2


We are in negotiations with Audi for a brand new top of the range A6 for the winner but if that falls through there will probably be a momento of some description from the wee trophy shop up the main street.
