We are absolutely delighted to be able to announce that this afternoon Alan Archibald was confirmed as the new, full-time, manager of Partick Thistle Football Club.
Archie, or from now on ‘the gaffer’, hardly needs any introduction to the Thistle fans and has impressed hugely during his stint as interim manager.
Alan will continue to be assisted by Scott Paterson.
We’ll have more details and reaction here on ptfc.co.uk over the course of the weekend but Club Chair David Beattie commented;
“I’m absolutely delighted to be able to confirm the appointment of Alan Archibald as Partick Thistle manager and Scott Paterson as his assistant. I look forward to working closely with them as we continue to work hard at providing a Club that we can all take pride in.”
