John Lambie

The Board and members of The Jags Trust send their sincere condolences to the Lambie Family.

It was with deep sadness that the football family received the news that John Lambie, a Thistle legend had died on 10 April 2018.

The mould was definitely broken when they made the man, the footballer, the manager and pigeon fancier. John Lambie was a larger than life character and everyone who rubbed shoulders with him had their own story to tell.

On Saturday 21 April 2018 The Jags Trust Board welcomes to Firhill, the Chairperson, Office Bearers and Committee of Hamilton Supporters Trust.

At this poignant moment it is very fitting that these two teams meet for the SPFL Premiership match at the Energy Check Stadium @Firhill.

Lambie steered Thistle through some agonising parts of our history but he also in true Thistle style experienced the triumphs.

 

Johnnie Lambie’s Red n Yellow Army!

Derek Harvey

It was with great sadness that the Trust has learned of the passing of Jags fan Derek Harvey.

Derek was first introduced to the mysteries of Maryhill's Finest when studying at Glasgow University, but it was his meeting with, and marriage to, Maggie Forsyth that committed him to Partick Thistle. Joined by their daughter Fiona, the trio were a fixture at Firhill and at away matches until the end of last season when the long-term effects of his illness curtailed his movements.

Our sincere condolences are extended to Maggie and Fiona during this difficult time and details of the funeral service can be found below.

HARVEY DEREK. Peacefully, at The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice, on 22nd August, 2017, aged 65, in the company of his wife, Margaret (Maggie) Forsyth and his daughter Fiona. A service will be held at the Linn Crematorium, Lainshaw Drive, Glasgow, G45 9SP on Wednesday, 30th August, 2017 at 12 noon. Family flowers only. A retiral collection will be taken for the work of The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice.

Please be aware that red & yellow colours at the funeral is optional, however they will be on prominent display.

Supporters Direct Update

Please see the below email received from Andrew Jenkin, the Head of Supporters Direct Scotland with an update from the recent Supporters Direct AGM.

 

"Good morning all,

I hope this finds you well.

I’m pleased to say following our consultation with members and the Supporters Direct AGM on July 2nd, Supporters Direct Scotland (SD Scotland) are pleased to announce SD members voted unanimously in favour of SD Scotland incorporating locally in Scotland. The new organisation will be run and directed from within Scotland and all football activity including SD Scotland’s work supporting Supporters Trusts, Supporter Liaison Officers and the Scottish Supporters Network will be transferred to this new organisation which is to be established and registered as a Community Benefit Society and owned by its Scottish members.

The new organisation will incorporate a new governance structure which will reflect the wide scope of its current activity and allow SD Scotland to serve its membership and mission with the SD Scotland Council becoming the Board of the new entity. The revised structure will also encourage and allow for individual membership and participation. The SD Scotland Council anticipate incorporation will allow SD Scotland to continue and grow the level of support and representation it offers fans and communities across Scotland.

SD Scotland will continue to participate in the UK football agenda and will maintain a structured relationship with SD which sees both organisations extract the benefit of working together, but with autonomy. SD Scotland will be working through a transitionary process with the aim of having the new structure in place by the end of 2017. 

We trust you’ll find this welcome news – please do not hesitate to contact with any further questions at this stage."

As per Andrew's email, anyone who has any questions they wish to be forwarded to Supporters Direct Scotland can get in touch either using the contact form from our website, or by emailing secretary@jagstrust.co.uk.
