Thistle have re-signed midfielder-turned left back Hugh Kelly after his release from Fauldhouse United. Hugh is a highly experienced junior player and will be a great addition to the playing staff at the club.
Everybody at the club would like to welcome Hugh back.
James Duris has been released from his second spell at the club at his request, we wish him all the best and thank him for his efforts.
Thistle drew with a good well organised Electric Bar side who play in the Central Amateur League on the plastic at Dalziel Park. It was a chance to look at some players and try out formations but the Jags had to come from 2-0 down to grab a draw, Mark Canning (penalty) and Matty Clarke with a mazy dribble getting the goals.
Thistle came from behind twice in a bad tempered game that saw both sides reduced to 10 men for a second half bust-up. The Jags created enough clear cut chances in the second half to win three games and can count themselves unfortunate to be stuck on four points after four home league games in a row
Thistle’s next league game is the difficult looking fixture away at joint leaders Lesmahagow, who will be desperate to get revenge for their 3-0 loss at Gasworks in the Sectional League Cup.
