Introducing Partick Thistle Football Club’s special 1971 Scottish League Cup winning commemorative kit, in partnership with O’Neills and Greaves Sports.
The iconic red and yellow kit has been produced to celebrate the achievements of our Hampden heroes and is available for supporters to purchase now – online and in-store at Greaves.
The replica 1971 strip has been released exactly one week out from the 50th anniversary of our famous 4-1 final victory over Celtic and will be worn by the current men’s first team on that very date, when we play Dunfermline Athletic at Firhill next Saturday.
The home jersey is priced £45 for adults and £35 for kids. In addition, a limited run of numbered kits, demonstrated below my members of the 71 cup winning squad, have been made and released as a nod to the four goalscorers of 50 years ago – autographed by each.
You can take your pick from 10 (Alex Rae), 11 (Bobby Lawrie), 7 (Denis McQuade) or 9 (Jimmy Bone) – these specially made limited edition kits are also priced at £45 for adults only.
We have another item which is an absolute keeper, as a replica of Thistle legend Alan Rough’s 1971 goalkeeping kit is also available for purchase by Jags fans, priced £50 for adults.
Paying tribute to 1971 manager David McParland and the suit colours he wore that day – navy and pink – a retro track jacket, retro polo, training half zip and training tee have been produced in those colours, complete with gold Thistle.
Finally, the 1971 range is complete with a choice of scarf, mug, pin badge and mini car kit.
Gerry Britton, Thistle Chief Executive, said: “Once again our friends at O’Neills and Greaves Sports have really knocked it out the park, with a range for fans which more than does justice to our legendary League Cup winning team.
“It was important we as a club marked this special year, paying an appropriate tribute to both sets of cup winners, and we hope fans enjoy this special 1971 kit as much as they enjoyed our 1921 replica back in April. I’ve definitely got my eye on one of the number 9 Jimmy Bone tops!”
