Dale joined Thistle in the summer of 2011 as a Modern Apprentice having previously been on the books of Celtic.
Dale is a versatile youngster who can play in a number of positions across the defence and defensive midfield having starred in various roles with the Development Squad.
Dale made his first competitive appearance for the Thistle first team when he replaced an injured Jordan McMillan in the early stages of a draw away to Dundee in just the second game of the 2014/15 season. Dale put in a brave performance as 10 man Thistle managed to salvage a well earned point.
Dale played a further twice before the signing of Jake Carroll saw him go on a short term loan to Ayr United in late 2014.
