Kris Doolan Testimonial

Partick Thistle Football Club would like to thank everyone who contributed to such a wonderful occasion at Firhill yesterday for Kris Doolan’s testimonial.

In glorious Sunday afternoon sunshine, a sizeable red and yellow support enjoyed seeing the Partick Thistle legends defeat a Celtic XI by eight goals to six thanks to a late double by the man himself.

Partick Thistle Chief Executive Gerry Britton said: “What a brilliant afternoon and fitting tribute to Kris. From start to finish it was the perfect day and fantastic to see so many happy and familiar faces.

“There’s a whole host of people who deserve a huge vote of thanks, starting with our visitors, the Celtic legends, for providing the opposition in what was such an entertaining match.

“For the home side, the sheer size of squad only underlined the level of respect and admiration all those who played on the day have for Kris. It was terrific to see so many popular former Jags return, especially those who travelled long distances, so our sincere thanks to them too.

“There’s something special about looking up to a sunny Jackie Husband stand and seeing so much red and yellow, with a real family feel yesterday, so another thank you must go to each and every supporter who turned out to give Kris the day he deserved.

“Of course, none of it would have been possible without the sheer hard work of the Kris Doolan testimonial committee and its many helpers – too many to mention but Graham Wilson and Craig Liddell deserve great credit for putting on such a great event.

“Finally, to Kris Doolan. Everyone at Partick Thistle sincerely thanks you for your 10 years of service, total professionalism and of course 121 goals – or is it now 123? You have your own place in the club’s history and you will be forever welcome at Firhill. We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did – thanks for everything.”
