Renfrew v Larkhall Thistle, Central League First Division

5

Thistle made their first visit to Renfrew’s new ground, another fine old junior stadium gone and replaced by a soulless astroturf community facility on the edge of a retail park. It’s all about survival though and Renfrew have secured their future for a few years at least even though the only familiar thing was the sight of the planes taking off and landing.

There was some late season snow in Neilston as the two teams fought out a tightly contested game with little frills or much to satisfy the purists.

Euroscot Eng Central League Cup draw

Thistle were drawn at home to local rivals Royal Albert in the 2nd round of the Central League Cup, always a difficult game. Let’s hope it is played on a Saturday but it’s more than likely to be midweek.

Whoever is victorious play the winners of  St. Rochs/Blantyre Vics in the 3rd Round. No doubt where we want to go to next if we beat our neighbours!

Joe Tierney

It is with much sadness and regret that the club have to announce the passing of committee member Joe Tierney, husband of  Club Secretary Fiona. Joe passed away on Tuesday night.

Our heartfelt condolences are extended to Fiona, son Stephen and daughter Julie and the family at this sad time. Our thoughts are very much with them all.

Rest in peace Joe.

Carluke Rovers v Larkhall Thistle, Central League First Division

Carluke Rovers v Larkhall Thistle 2 April 2016 - summary

Thistle looked to build on last week’s excellent performance at title-chasing Wishaw with another trip to North Lanarkshire to play fellow mid-table side Carluke. In the end, sadly the game was more like the St Anthony’s one a couple of weeks ago.
