The Thistle Archive - short Dunfermline quiz

Recommended Posts

Was looking through the brilliant The Thistle Archive this evening and thought it might be fun to pull a few Dunfermline related questions together in advance of this weekends game. Anyway, here’s the questions - answers and memories of the games/personnel are also welcome!

1. Our last game v Dunfermline in the 20th Century was a 2-1 home loss in the third round of the Scottish Cup, taking place on 23 January 1999.  But who were the managers for both teams that day?

2. Which current Thistle player is the most recent ex-Par to make it to Firhill?

3. The 2002/03 Premier League finished with Thistle avoiding relegation by ending tenth in the twelve team league. Dunfermline finished fifth, but how many more points did they manage to accumulate compared to us?
 
4. Between his spells as a Dunfermline and Partick Thistle player, what other four teams did Jackie McNamara play for?
 
5. Jorge Cadete played his last Thistle game on Saturday, 20 March 2004 away to Dunfermline. What was the final score in the match?

Hi EEJ. Thanks for the quiz. This is top of the head stuff to get the ball rolling. I am relying on memory supplemented by guesswork and have not checked any of the answers which are probably mostly wrong!

1) Tommy Bryce and No Idea-Stephen Kenny or Dick Campbell??

2) Presuming it is not Joe Cardle or Ryan Williamson. Wild stab at Kyle Turner.

3) Not a clue. Go for 10.

4) Celtic, Wolves and Falkirk I am pretty sure of. Will go for Hearts or Hibs, but I have a feeling that they are both wrong.

5) I think that it was a pretty horrible defeat and that Stevie Crawford pulled us apart. 4-0 to the Pars?

Hoping to score more than nul points.
