1876-77 Tentative Steps


If the first season saw the club feeling it’s way in the football world, the following 1876-77 season almost saw the club’s hopes extinguished before they had really got under way. No matches were reported in the press until the last month of the season, when a match was organised between the Partick Thistle second team and the second team of local rivals Partick Ramblers. Two reports were filed for this game – in the North British Daily Mail Ramblers reported the score as being “a victory for the Ramblers by two goals to none” while the Glasgow News had “a victory for the Ramblers by two goals to one, disputed to none” filed no doubt by a Partick Thistle official.
