Due to Thistle’s and Darvel’s pitches both being waterlogged in places, this friendly will now be played at Loudon Academy 3G pitch, kick off 2pm.
The academy is easy to find, follow the A71 until you pass Loudon Gowf Club and at the roundabout take the third exit on right. You will find the academy on your right.
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 looked like they were going to be blown away on their return to Darvel, with the Ayrshire side well in command in the early stages. The Jags fought back well though, click below to read Hugh’s full report of the game.
