The John Lambie Stand

John Lambie’s achievements at Firhill are the stuff of legend. His love for Thistle endured to the end of his life and his death was a blow to fans and Club alike.

The Partick Thistle Board of Directors has decided that there can be only one suitable tribute in recognition of everything that John Lambie achieved for the Club during his time here. Therefore, the Club can today announce that, from this day forward, the North Stand will be officially renamed The John Lambie Stand.

David Beattie, Chairman of Partick Thistle Football Club, said: “On behalf of the Thistle Board, it is an honour to announce that that the North Stand will be renamed The John Lambie Stand. Given his contribution to the club during four separate spells in charge, we are unlikely to ever see John’s like again.  It is a fitting and lasting tribute to someone who has had a more positive impact on the Jags than almost anyone else in the Club’s history.

“I am pleased that John’s family has accepted our invitation to attend Saturday’s game. I know how much the fans’ support has meant to them and it will be great for them to be amongst so many friends, home and opposition support, for the minute’s applause before kick-off on Saturday.”

There will be new signage on the gable end of The John Lambie Stand for the game on Saturday. Signage is planned for the stand’s front fascia however our contractors have advised that investigation is required to determine structural suitability, which is being currently being undertaken.
