The funeral of former Thistle defender Willie Holland will be held at the Cooperative funeral parlour at 10am and then onto Larkhall Cemetery for the committal.
Thistle made the short trip across the Clyde to play high-flying neighbours Wishaw. In a week of remarkable turnarounds in the big football, Wishaw followed in the steps of Rangers Liverpool and Germany as they blew a two goal lead.
It is with deep sadness that the club have to announce the passing of Willie Holland.
Another local lad who played with the Jags, Willie was a tough-tackling full back and played at Gasworks Park with some fine players such as Alex Love, Andy Lawless, Davie Kirkland and Billy Thomas.
Our sincere condolences from everyone at Larkhall Thistle are extended to the Holland family at this sad time. At this point funeral details are not to hand but we will put details on the website when information becomes available.
Rest in peace Willie.
On a very sad note the club have great regret in announcing the passing of Charlie Brown who played for the Jags and went upstairs with Clyde.
Charlie lived all his days in Larkhall and our heartfelt condolences are sent from the club to his wife Nan and family at this sad time
At last a home game, only Thistle’s third home game since the beginning of November 2015.
Special guests today are Jimmy MacAnenay and Mick Lyons, who were part of one one of the Jags most entertaining team which included three junior internationalists, Jimmy and four players who went on to have a successful careers in senior football.
