The Edinburgh Evening News previewed Partick Thistle’s chances in the 1906-07 season…

“It would seem as if improvement on last year’s form so far as this club is concerned depends on the additions made to the fighting strength, and these do not appear remarkable. It is interesting to observe in this connection that John Campbell, who played forward for the Hibernian last season is among the number and thus returns his “first love.” It is confidently anticipated that he will reproduce his old form, and that being so no better acquisition to the playing strength of the team could be desired. Campbell is now married, and residing in Glasgow. Thistle have gone to the junior market for others, and induced the following forwards to join the senior ranks: Aitkenhead (Maryhill), James Doherty (Cambuslang Hibernians), A. M’Gregor (Ashfield), and they have also engaged P. McMillan of Clydebank. who was one of Dumbarton’s team last season. Noted men who will be seen out are Howden, Gibson, and Kennedy. The forward W. Gray has gone to England, and arrangements are likely to be made for the transference of Rangers’ back G. Gilchrist., who went to Ibrox from Shawfield.

Partick Thistle’s lot are W. Howden, T. Harvie, A. McKenzie, J. Lyon, N. Gibson, G. Allan. D. Walker, H. Wilson, D. Melville, S. Kennedy, B. Gray, J. Sommen, P. McMillan, W. Aitkenhead. R. Gray, J. Campbell, J. Doherty, A. McGregor.”
