Partick Thistle completed the signing of winger, Blair Lyons, from Montrose on a two-and-a-half-year deal on 27th January 2020 with the 23-year-old returning to the Gable Endies on loan for the remainder of the 19/20 campaign.
Lyons joined Montrose in 2019 from Stirling University where he had greatly impressed with his pace and skill while also studying for a Sports Science degree.
At the time of signing with the Jags, he’d played 20 league games and netted six goals in the process from the wing playing in the same team as on-loan Jags midfielder, Mouhamed Niang.
Greatly aided by Blair’s creativity Montrose were able to secure a fourth-placed finish for the second year running in League One, winning over 50% of their games.
When the season was cut short in March, Blair had 10 league goals in 26 games seeing him sit fifth in the divisional scoring charts. That form earned him a spot in the League One Team of the Season.
Contract Expiry: May 2022
