Eagle-eyed Thistle fans may have noticed a stunning new addition to the South Drive wall at the junction with Firhill Road.
The familiar face is, of course, club legend Davie McParland, resplendent in full colour including the famous red and yellow. The new artwork was created by the skilled hands of painter Bobby McNamara. The first layer was applied earlier this week with a second coat to follow to finish the eye-catching new addition to South Drive.
The stunning new mural forms part of a wider celebration planned to mark Davie’s remarkable contribution to Thistle, not only in 1971, but as a long-serving player before becoming manager. He remains the player with the second highest number of Thistle first team appearances of all time, behind only Alan Rough.
Full details of the club’s tribute to Davie McParland, in the 50th anniversary year of our 1971 Scottish League Cup win, will be announced soon.
