When relatives get in touch, it's truly amazing what tales lie behind some of our Jagsmen, and the story of Bert Haugh certainly falls into that category. An international man of some mystery, Bert was very much a man of the people who fearlessly walked a rockier path for a greater good, in spite of the F.B.I. His legacy prevails.

I will second that. What an incredibly interesting multi-dimensional biography.

On the 16th April, 1921, eleven men took to the field and defeated the Rangers by one to nil, thus securing the Scottish Cup for Partick Thistle.

Campbell, Crichton & Bulloch; Harris, Wilson & Borthwick; Blair, Kinloch, Johnstone, McMenemy & Salisbury.

"Now, what I think should happen is that people who support Thistle memorize these names, because these are people who are outstandingly important, and it should be part of the curriculum in Maryhill primary schools."  (Robert Reid, April, 2021)

You should listen to that man, he's very wise, used to be a head teacher you know. We're a' Robert Reid's bairns!

Of course, there was more to it than those eleven could physically have managed, for the Thistle took an astonishing eleven matches to eventually secure the trophy, creating all sorts of unique records along the way. In total, 18 squad members contributed to the herculean struggle, almost wholly fought in the mud, wind and rain. These men are profiled in the stories herein, as well the two group leaders, George Easton (manager) and Sandy Lister (trainer).

The pen pics in the story were written for The Day The Scottish Cup Came Up To Maryhill → and are slightly tweaked here to accommodate the single piece approach. They are listed in the order in which they appeared in that original story.

Right then, pens and paper at the ready, children of Maryhill. Are we sitting comfortably? Good. Then we shall begin…

Nice concept! Crichton mind. A 2-3-5 layout might look the part?

If I try to get 5 names across a t shirt it will look like an eye test chart :)

Or how about  "has anyone seen Matt Wilson?". Same colour scheme and font?

I suppose, though,  you could ask the same question about loads of former players.

For the first time, image galleries have been added to match hubs on the Archive (thanks to Stuart Deans for the cracking new photies from Parkhead) with the Motherwell & Rangers games from '21 being the first to receive this treatment.  It would be good to see more of this sort of thing on the Archive, so anyone in a position to get involved with that would be encouraged to do so.

Sorry to be a stickler - too many ampersands. Remove those after Campbell,Harris,Blair,Kinloch and Johnstone.

It's a style that has been used for a long time on things like band t shirts. John & Paul & George & Ringo for example. I'm using it three times for defence, mid and forwards.

Have you not forgiven them for hanging that monkey yet EKJ?

I hate to think what they would've done to our Napoleon,  Jimmy McMenemy.  They no doubt wouldn't understand a word he said either!!

I say send Doncaster to live there.  I'm not a fan of capital punishment,  but hopefully they've still got their rope!!

Shortly we'll be introducing 32 pages for each of our managers / co-managers from the entire history of the club. As a prelude to this, our latest 'Partickle' chronicles all of our managerial comings and goings, illustrated and precisely dated in one handy overview. 20 mins read...
