Who Are The Jags Players In This Photo?

Recommended Posts

Not much of a crowd there... The only match I can see where Freebairn, Brown and Cunningham played together at Porkheid is a League Cup game, August 21, 1961. We lost 3-2, crowd 27,000.

In that season we finished 7th, and four players reached double-figure goal counts for us: Joe McBride 21 (1 hat-trick), Neil Duffy 14, Tommy Ewing 11 (1 hat-trick), and George Smith 11.

Interesting: Davie McParland played in most games (usually at no. 11), didn't score in the League Cup, scored 7 between September and December, and then nothing until the end of the season, but fortunately those other guys were in good form.

Incidentally, 5 games against the Porkheiders that season (including Glasgow Cup): 5 defeats. Goals for: 7, goals against: 18.

Some things don't change much.

had an other look, think it's bobby carrol under sandy brown's arm, might be billy hainey under john freebairn's left hand,  neil duffy between freebairn and chalmers, and willie fernie between chalmers and billy cunningham

An easy one. The main point of posting this one is: remember those (thankfully short-lived) blue shorts?!

Who was it who came up with the idea that was a good colour combination.....??

 

(Actually, I secretly quite like it.)

Ronnie Glavin of course. That was a cracking top and I had a replica, but it used to bug me when I was young that our replica tops (when thy were mainly yellow) always seemed more orangey yellow than what the actual team wore. The first time the replica was decent was when we changed to stripes.

A cracking top indeed, especially with that collar; I wasn't quite so keen on the rounded neck version.

Started watching a series last night called The English Game about the early days of football. An English mill owner in Lancashire has a football team and brought 2 skilful Scottish guys down to try and beat Old Etonions in a cup game by playing the passing game. The club they came from - Partick ! Is it fact or fiction ?

It is fact, plenty to read here:- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Partick_F.C.

There's more about him in the Herald today and this week's Radio Times on the TV series coming soon.  

Brother Jarvis ("Jerry") Suter played 157 games for the real Thistle!

Not to be confused with Partick Thistle FC.

Yes, I think the article makes it pretty clear there were two 'Partick' teams for a while

the early years of PTFC and their use of the old strawberry field / Muir Park are written up here:- https://ptearlyyears.net/grounds1/muir-park

interesting stuff, and if we are going to be confined to our houses for a few months, we can do worse than investigate the origins of the team

Easy one: spot the substitute's substitute.

PS: Just noticed, looking at the badges, is this photo left-right reversed?
