Supporters fund centre circle

As work on the Firhill pitch continues in earnest, the club would like to offer its thanks to the forum for its fundraising efforts which have raised £3,600 which will go towards paying for overall pitch renovation.

The fundraising efforts, organised by Phil Bowen, called for Thistle fans to “pay as you enjoy” by pledging a minimum of £1 per point that Alan Archibald’s team managed to accrue from February 26th onwards – a total of 15.

The figure of £3,600 is not just a number either, as Phil Bowen explains:

The total transferred is now £3,600. This is an important number. It is 3.6% of the anticipated cost of replacing the drainage and re-laying the pitch. By a happy coincidence, the ten yard radius circle marked in the middle of the pitch represents 3.6% of the total area of the playing surface. Therefore, on behalf of forum members, I claim the centre circle as ours. I would be grateful if the club could look after it for us!

The club would like to take this opportunity to thank Phil and all of the forum members who contributed.
