Players of the 90's


DANNY LENNON - APPS 2 GLS 0
Made his Thistle debut in the same match as Scott Mclean and Peter Lindau, against Stenhousemuir on December 18th 1999. Has been an ever present since then and adds some real quality to the Thistle midfield. Is now club captain.

PETER LINDAU - APPS 2 GLS 1
Super Swede Lindau His arrival on loan from Ayr United coincided with Thistle's best form of season 1999/00 and that is no coincidence. He made his debut, as did Scott Mclean, against Stenhousemuir on December 18th and his debut goal, Thistle's last goal of the century, earned Thistle three points. In total from 8 appearances he netted 4 times including a double in a 4-2 win over Ross County. Returned to Ayr United at the end of his loan spell but was back at Firhill, this time permanently, in time for the start of the new season. He wasn't quite so succesful in 2000/01 but still managed ten goals and many people were disappointed when he turned down the contract on offer at the end of the season to play in Norway.

RONNIE LOWRIE - APPS 1 GLS 0
Signed as on experienced back up to Andy Murdoch and Craig Nelson, Lowrie played one game, a 1-1 draw with Hamilton at Firhill, during season 91/92 before joining Pollok Juniors. Enjoyed great success at Newlandsfield as a player and is now continuing that success as a manager with the same club.

DEREK LYLE - APPS 3 (4) GLS 1
The find of season 99/00. Scored prolificly for the U18's and looked the part when he made the breakthrough to the first team. Tipped as the player to look out for in seasons to come, he's never been able to get a regular first team slot under Lambie's management, however, he thrived on regular first team football while out on loan to East Stirling and QOS, and eventually made the switch to the Doonhamers in the summer.

ANDY LYONS - APPS 77 (6) GLS 16
Unquestionably Murdo MacLead's best piece of transfer businessas Thistle manager. Andy signed from Wigan Athletic and although he didn't manage a debut goal against Raith, he managed double in each of the next two games, a 2-1 win at Falkirk and an unforgettable 5-2 success at Tynecastle against Hearts. A stunning free kick fired Thistle into an early lead in the ill-fated two-legged play-off with Dundee United. Injury led to some inconsistency the following season as the whole club suffered a relegation hangover and worse was to follow 12 months later as The Jags dropped to the Second Division. The pain of that relegation was all to clear on the face of a player who became a big favourite with the Firhill faithful. Was one of a large number of players to depart Firhill following that relegation.

KEVIN MAGEE - APPS 1 (11) GLS 0
Very popular player with the Thistle fans despite only starting one game, the ill-fated Scottish Cup tie with Cowdenbeath, in close on two seasons at Firhill. He made his debut against Meadowbank Thistle when he replaced the injured Declan Roche early in the match and left the field to a standing ovation when he himself was replaced shortly before the end. He featured sporadically the following season in the Premier League before leaving to join Preston North End. A succession of injuries hampered his progress at Deepdale and subsequently he had spells at, among others, Dundee and Livingston.

Alex Martin

ALEX MARTIN - APPS 4 (18) GLS 1
Brought to Firhill by John McVeigh from Airdrie with the reputation as a young striker with the ability to plunder goals. His Thistle career got off to the best possible of starts with a goal on his debut against Hamilton. However, that was his only goal in Thistle colours spending most of the remainder of that season on the substitute bench. Featured just once when Tommy Bryce took charge of team affairs before he accepted the offer of a free transfer.

BRIAN MARTIN - APPS 2 GLS 0
Arrived at Firhill from Stirling Albion near the end of 1999. Previously with St Mirren and Motherwell, where he gained international honours.

STEVIE MASKREY - APPS 34 (1) GLS 3
Vastly experiencec striker who was signed by Murdo MacLeod from Kilmarnock in an attempt to add some firepower to Thistle's promotion challenge of season 96/97. An extremely hard working player he netted on his debut against Queen's Park in the Challenge Cup but managed only a further two goals as the Thistle promotion push never really materialised.

SCOTT MILLER - APPS 9 (2) GLS 1
Joined the club from Clydebank at the start of 99/00 season. It took him until October to score his first goal for Thistle and not many more followed after that. It was a poor season for the club overall and Miller did little to impress the fans. Towards the end of the season it would have taken a barrowload of goals from him to win the fans over - none came and he got the biggest cheer of his Jags career when he left at the end of the season. Moved to Second Division rivals Stenhousemuir and got a little revenge by playing in the side that beat Thistle twice that season, although he himself didn't manage to score.

CALLUM MILNE - APPS 115 (3) GLS 2
Another of John Lambie's highly successful low key forays into the transfer market. Signed from Hibs in September 1993 he quickly established himself as a reqular in the Thistle defence as The Jags staged another of their relegation escape acts from the Premier League. Only scored twice for Thistle, the first an absolute cracker against Dundee United at Tannadice. His total number of appearances for Thistle would have been much greater had it not been for serious knee problems; he played only 4 times in season 94/95. Twice suffered the pain of relegation with Thistle and in the inevitable clear out following the drop at the end of the 97/98 season he was given a free transfer.

JOHN MITCHELL - APPS 11 (3) GLS 1
First broke into the Thistle first team in the mid 1980's but was never quite able to live up to his full potential. Could on occasion prove to be a match winner from midfield but was too inconsistent. Moved to Clyde as part of the deal that brought Colin McGlashan to Firhill. A broken leg severely hampered his progress with Clyde and, moved to the Juniors with Shotts.
