I hope so irrie, it will be interesting to see how many fans we take through although due to work i won't be able to make it myself.

Irrie, there was more at our game yesterday (5200) than any of the SPL matches.

Better be careful with comments like that Jagz, the lads from the east end are a wee bit on the sensitive side when it comes to size of the crowds tongue.gif

Anyway don't you know that the SPL is "booming" and making large profits rolleyes.gif since Rangers left according to the Dundee U. chairman!!

Glad to see the "Jags" going back to wearing the old strip, funny, when I think of them, it's always with them wearing the red & yellow. They are playing well so I hope the crowd continue to increase. "Mon the Harry Rags"

It was never a case of not wearing the Red and Yellow through choice Mac, it was a production problem with the manufacturers (Puma) that caused a delay in the new home strips being delivered.

Hello JAGZ1876

It's me, Danny Harris, coming to this topic to haunt you!

Thanks for your questions regarding my Granny and my Dad.

I don't have any record of how much she was paid for washing and ironing the Partick Thistle strips. It is safe to say she would have been paid 'washers' if you will excuse the pun, because my first wage as an engineering tradesman in 1952 was 5.00. So she would probably have been employed when Thistle first moved up to Firhill from Partick. My Dad was born in Firhill Road in 1909, so he was a lifetime Jags supporter, like his father before him.

I remember seeing one of my Dad's season tickets a few years ago, so I will have another search for it. He died in 1959 at the age of 50, so obviously this season ticket will be from the fifties.

It was actually my grandfather who took me to see my first footbal match at Firhill. It must have been about 1934 or 1935, prior to me starting school at Oakbank School in 1936. I know this because my grandfather never tired of telling people that I asked him what that man was doing in the tent. That man was Jerry Dawson, the famous Rangers goalkeeper.

He would rattle off the names of some Thistle greats, long before my time, but unless I see their names being referred to in some publications, I keep fogetting them

One or two Thistle characters my Dad and I both had the pleasure to see, were players like Peter 'Ma Baw' McKenna. If a team mate wouldn't pass the ball to him he would just go up and take it off him. I kid you not!

Another was Jimmy Mc Gowan. A wonderful servant of Thistle's at right back. He used to get a cheer all to himself if he kept the ball in the park! I went to his testimonial game in the 1950's It was a full house.

I could go on, but I better stop, and end by saying that I saw the great Liverpool manager, Willie Shankly, play as a guest for Thistle towards the end of World War II, and I was at the match which changed Andy Kerr from being a top class defender into a forward. He was playing right back for Thistle against Hearts, who had a great team in those days. Andy got injured and played on the left wing. Substitutes weren't allowed in those days. He scored two goals and the game ended 4-4. He went to Kilmarnock shortly after that and played centre forward.

I know I said I would shut up, but I must finish with this wee story. I actually played for a five a side team in the early 1960's One of my team-mates was the great Thistle international winger, Johnny McKenzie. Eat your heart out all you old Partick Thistle fans! Hey Hey!

Regards to all

Danny Harris

Hi DannyH I remember all the players you mention. My da and granda started taking me to Thistle games in the early 50s and i have been a fan ever since. My da went to Oakbank probably just before you. Cheers.

Great post DannyH, you should try to get a photograph of your dad's season ticket book on here (Although i'm still in the dark about how to post pictures on here) and can you remember the opponents and score in Jimmy McGowan's testimonial?

Hello Again Jagz1876

This game was played in the mid-1950's, so I have forgotten some important facts.

I can't remember the score, but I am sure the guest opposing team was a Glasgow Select team, and not all necessarily players who were still playing first team football. I remember a very overweight, George Young of Rangers fame playing, and a young wing half who still played for Third Lanark, named Kelly. This guy could run for 90 minutes and still look fresh. He had the well deserved reputation of being a human dynamo. Also in that team was a Celtic player. I am sure he was Neil Mochan. What I do remember about him was that he came on to the pitch looking immaculate, played a great intellegent game, and finished the match without a hair out of place!

It was one of those games that nobody cared about the result. We were all there, including all the players, to let Jimmy McGowan know that we all loved and respected him. There are not many present day players who get the same affection from supporters and players from all the other Glasgow Clubs. It was a privilege to have been there.

Regards to All

Danny Harris
