Charlene O’Hara receives Denise Murray Memorial Award

On 27 March last year, the Murray family lost a beloved mum, daughter and sister, and Partick Thistle lost one of its most loyal and dedicated supporters in Denise Murray.

Denise was hugely respected by everyone who had the good fortune to meet her and is sadly missed at Firhill, particularly by those who sat next to her in the Jackie Husband Stand and those who travelled on the City Centre Supporters’ bus which she ran with her dad Duncan and sister Janis.

To keep her memory alive, Denise’s family and friends have created a memorial award that recognises the outstanding contribution made by an individual or group to Partick Thistle or the club’s wider community.

They were proud on Saturday to invite their good friend Ross Nisbet to present the first ever Denise Murray Memorial Award to Charlene O’Hara for the endless hours of work she’s put into re-establishing the Partick Thistle Disabled Supporters’ Association.

The Murray family believe that Charlene possesses all the Jags’ best qualities: doggedness, determination and spirit and heart in abundance.

On behalf of everyone at Partick Thistle Football Club, a sincere thanks to the Murray family and our heartfelt congratulations to Charlene for this richly deserved award.
