Thank you, Jamie Sneddon!

In yesterday’s squad update, it was announced that Jamie Sneddon would be leaving Partick Thistle this summer. After seven years of service at Firhill, the club would like to say a special thank you to Jamie for his efforts as a Jag.

Sneddon came to Maryhill in 2017 under Alan Archibald signing as a 19-year-old following a couple of seasons featuring for Cowdenbeath at first team level, playing a crucial role as they beat East Kilbride in the League 2 play-offs.

He would make his Jags debut in July 2018, coming on as a half-time substitute for Aaron Lennox as Thistle beat Stenhousemuir 2-0 in their opening game of the competitive season. He went on to make 16 total appearances that term.

Gametime was limited during the 2019/20 campaign but Jamie returned to the fore the season after as Thistle competed in League 1. He only played 13 games due to injury but kept eight clean sheets and featured in every game of the team’s eight game unbeaten run which took them to the title.

Sneddon returned to the second tier as the bona fide number one for Ian McCall’s side and excelled during the 2021/22 season ending that campaign with 21 shutouts in 43 matches including a league-high 17 in the Championship.

Eight of those 21 clean sheets came consecutively from October to December in 2021, a new club record for competitive shutouts on the trot which had stood for over a century.

Jamie kept five further clean sheets and made plenty more saves during the 2022/23 season, however, it was something he did at the other end of the pitch which proved to be his most memorable moment of the campaign.

With the Jags trailing 1-0 at Cove Rangers in injury time, our number one was sent forward to add an extra body into the mix for a last gasp corner. Stuart Bannigan swung the set piece in and Jamie was the player who rose highest to meet the delivery and head it into the corner of the net to rescue a point for Thistle. Celebrated wildly by players and fans alike, it was chosen as the SPFL Goal of the Month for December 2022.

This season, Jamie has made 27 appearances and kept six clean sheets with his final appearance for the club coming in a 3-3 draw away to Inverness in February.

Once again, everyone at the Wyre Stadium at Firhill would like to wish Jamie all the very best for the future and thank him for his terrific service to Partick Thistle.
