The club have great pleasure in announcing that Frank B Craig your local electrical goods retailer will be the match sponsor for Saturday’s game in the Scottish against local rivals the Albert.
We are sure Frank and his party will enjoy their day and Larkhall Thistle wish to record their appreciation for his support.
Thistle received a bye in the 1st round, which despite only having 31 ties produced some outstanding ones such as Lesmahagow v Irvine Meadow, Wishaw v Cumnock and St. Rochs v Kilwinning Rangers.
Ties due to be played on 24th September.
Thistle made the Halloween trip to Gorebridge to conclude their second round Scottich Cup match with Arniston Rangers, and as events unfolded one travelling Jags supporter was heard to enquire who the guy in the middle was dressed as a referee.

Thistle have been drawn at home to Haddington Athletic in the first round of the Scottish Cup. Haddington play in the East Premier League, the division below the Superleague and are currently sitting sixth after five games. It will be a stiff test for the Jags as the two teams look fairly evenly matched on paper.
As commented by regular poster Exiled, Thistle lost 3-1 there in the Scottish Cup in 1970 when they had a very good team and a massive support, the round after beating Preston Athletic (now a Senior team) 4-0 at Prestonpans.
The tie takes place on Saturday 26th September at Gasworks Park.
Thistle began their Scottish Cup campaign in the second round today after getting a bye in the first. The two teams looked fairly evenly matched on paper and the bookies couldn’t separate them either, but the Jags had gone out of the cup to Ayrshire opposition in each of the last three seasons so this was going to be a difficult task.

Thistle went down to the latest money men from Ayrshire, but not before putting up a fantastic first half showing and restricting Hurlford to goals from set pieces – one of them straight out of the comic capers category.

Thistle produced a performance of grit and determination to emerge from this Scottish Cup tie with a win against the odds. The Jags had been 100/30 outsiders in the per-match betting but were the equal of their higher league opponents in every department.
