Scottish Cup 1st Round Draw

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.



Larkhall Thistle v Hurlford United 18th January 2014

Hurlford on the attack in the first half

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.
