Farewell Malky McCormick

Recommended Posts

Jags fans of a certain vintage will remember when the back page of the club programme always featured a McCormick cartoon, often in praise (albeit of the faint variety) of the Jags and lampooning the gruesome twosome.

I still have this one which followed a(nother) less than dynamic start to one season…..

I am glad to say that I fall into that certain vintage .I remember the cartoon on the back page of the program fondly,a good reason to visit my loft to bring back happy memories..

Sorry to hear this news.

The (Killie supporting) McCormick's cartoons were an eccentric symbol in a rather eccentric era for Thistle.

I loved them, but they reinforce what a colourless era we're going through at the moment.

Nae characters in the game any more......

Saw him as an after dinner speaker once, he was a real character and extremely entertaining.  RIP Malky.

A recognisable style and a great talent from a bygone era.  We could all do with a greater ability to laugh at ourselves and he held up a mirror that made that possible.

RIP

He did a magazine of cartoons for Save the Jags. I've a couple of copies stored away in a boxful of Jags memorabilia.

Hadn't realised his son had been brain damaged after an attack tn Kilmarnock in 2004. Sounds as though that affected Malky and his wife.pretty badly afterwards, sadly.

RIP Malky, and thanks for all the laughs.
