Macklin Motors driving Academy team forward

The Thistle Weir Youth Academy can today confirm Macklin Motors Nissan has joined its growing band of sponsors for the season ahead.

The Glasgow dealership, located just a five minute drive from Firhill Stadium, have agreed a deal that will see the Macklin Motors Nissan logo appear on the front of the home and away match strips of the Academy’s under 18s squad until 2022. The Macklin Motors logo will also appear on the front of the shirts of two grassroots squads.

The Port Dundas Road dealership, with an iconic eight-storey glass tower visible from the M8, have been proud partners of Partick Thistle since 2017 and now extend that commitment to the Thistle Weir Youth Academy.

Scott Allison, Thistle Weir Youth Academy director, said: “I’m really excited to welcome Macklin Motors Nissan Glasgow to the Academy. To receive the valued support of another local business within the Academy is a terrific boost for us.

“It’s been a great week for the Academy so far with squads returning to training earlier this week and the good news just keeps coming. We now have our under 18s back on the training pitch and hopefully it won’t be too long before we seeing them back playing competitive games displaying the Macklin Motors Nissan logo on their shirts.”

Paul Jordan, After Sales Manager from Macklin Motors Nissan Glasgow, said: “When the opportunity came up to sponsor the Academy under 18 match kits, it was a no-brainer for us. We’ve proudly supported Partick Thistle for three years now and we’re incredibly excited to extend that support to the under 18s side, to hopefully enjoy seeing players graduate from the Academy into the first team at the club.”
