Play was even for a while then Kilmarnock took a half-time lead. There were three second half goals, 2 for the visitors.

5. Sat-01-Oct-1892 [h] W4-0 Laurieston (Scottish 2nd XI Cup 2nd Round)
GH 3/10/1892. (Predicted SR), Brown, McLindon, Willis, Logan, McKenzie, King, Currie, Proudfoot, Moffat, Kennedy, McKeown. Confirmed line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.

7. Sat-15-Oct-1892 [a] W5-1 Motherwell (William Dolphin Benefit)
MT 22/10/1892. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced. Testimonial for a local player William Dolphin but he died 2 days before the match was played.
The visitors were too much for their opponents and left the stain of a 5-1 defeat in their train.
8. Sat-22-Oct-1892 [h] L1-7 Heart of Midlothian (Scottish 2nd XI Cup 3rd Round)
GH 24/10/1892. CURRIE. Line-up as yet unsourced.
There was no denying Hearts were the better team. They led 6-0 at half-time. Rice in goal for Thistle was at fault for the first 3 goals as Hearts ran riot, although the score flattered them. Currie got the goal.
9. Sat-05-Nov-1892 [h] D0-0 Westbourne (Friendly)
GH 7/11/1892. Thistle (predicted) per SR (4/11/1892): Walters, McLindon, Willis, Edgar, McKenzie, Scott, Currie, Proudfoot, McKeown, Mulvey, Kennedy. Reserve - Wood. Strangely, the opponents are listed as Northern Strollers in the preview, but listed as Westbourne in the post-match report. We guess that the preview would be most likely to be wrong!
10. Sat-19-Nov-1892 [h] L0-5 Rangers (Friendly)
SR 25/11/1892. Thistle (predicted) per SR (18/11/1892): Walters, McMoreland, McLindon, McKenzie, Edgar, Scott, Proudfoot, Currie, Mulvey, Boyd, Kennedy. Thistle played with 10 men in the 1st half. 2 x 30 mins were played.
Thistle played with 10 men in the first half and trailed 3-0 at half-time. Restored to 11 men after half-time a fightback was expected but it never came. Rangers were far too good for them.
11. Sat-26-Nov-1892 [a] L0-1 St Mirren (Friendly)
PRG 3/12/1892. Thistle (predicted) per SR (25/11/1892): Walters, McMoreland, McLindon, Scott, McKenzie, Wood, Proudfoot, Currie, Mulvey, Boyd, McKeown.
12. Sat-17-Dec-1892 [a] L0-9 Battlefield (Glasgow 2nd XI Cup 1st Round)
SR 19/12/1892. (Predicted) Walters, McMoreland, McLindon, McLoure, McKenzie, Edgar, Currie, Proudfoot, Mulvey, Boyd, Cochrane. Confirmed line-up as yet unsourced.
Thistle played a scratch team besides being 2 men short. 2-down at half-time, Battlefield piled on the agony and scored seven more.
13. Sat-21-Jan-1893 [a] L1-6 Third Lanark (Friendly)
SR 23/1/1893. (Predicted) Walters, McLindon, McKeown, McKenzie, Munn, Edgar, Proudfoot, Taylor, Mulvey, Cochrane, Boyd. Confirmed line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
Forced to pick up two subs from around the ropes (2 of the team failed to appear), Thistle were no match for the Thirds and trailed 4-1 at half-time. Only poor shooting prevented an even bigger score.
14. Sat-11-Feb-1893 [h] W2-0 Vale of Leven (Friendly)
SR 10/2/1893. (Predicted) Walters, McLindon, Willies, Thomas, McKeown, Mitchell, Boyd, Cochrane, Rice, Mitchell, Proudfoot. Confirmed line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
15. Sat-04-Mar-1893 [a] L1-2 Vale of Leven Rovers (Friendly)
NBDM 6/3/1893. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
16. Sat-11-Mar-1893 [h] L3-4 Third Lanark (Friendly)
SR 13/3/1893. (Predicted) Walters, McLindon, Campbell, Thomas, McKeown, Thomas (?), Proudfoot, Sinclair, Gillatry, Cochrane, Boyd. Scorers as yet unsourced.
A closely fought match but one of poor quality. Thirds led 3-1 at half-time with a fourth just after the restart. Thistle fought back however with a couple themselves but that was all they managed.
17. Sat-25-Mar-1893 [a] L3-7 Volunteers (Friendly)
SR 24/3/1893. (Predicted). Walters, McLindon, Campbell, Thomas. McKeown, Gillatry, Cochrane, Boyd, Sinclair, Freebairn, Boyd. Confirmed line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
Thistle had pretty much their own way in this match against Greenock junior team the Volunteers.
18. Sat-15-Apr-1893 [h] W5-0 Glasgow Perthshire (Friendly)
SR 17/4/1893. Line-up and remaining scorers as yet unsourced.
Against the wind Thistle ran up a 4-goal lead and a large tally after half-time was expected but Perthshire tightened their defence and only one more goal was scored by James.
19. Sat-22-Apr-1893 [a] L3-5 Glasgow Thistle (Friendly)
SR 24/4/1893. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
Thistle had the wind at their backs in the first half and led 3-0 at half-time. Against the wind it was a completely different story and the home team dominated, scoring 5 without reply.
