SR 6/1/1896. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
Thistle enjoyed a brief spell of supremacy then the roof fell in. It was 4-0 at half-time. Just as well the Govan team had 5 first-team regulars missing!
6. Sat-25-Jan-1896 [h] L0-3 Battlefield (Glasgow 2nd XI Cup Quarter Final)
SR 27/1/1896. Line-up as yet unsourced.
7. ?Sat-21-Mar-1896 [a] L0-3 Barrhead Springhill (Friendly)
SR 27/3/1896. Line-up as yet unsourced. Date played not confirmed in report (Friday edition). Assumed to be 21/3.
Thistle has most of the play in the first half but drew a blank. Roles were reversed after half-time the difference being Barrhead found the net three times.
8. Sat-18-Apr-1896 [a] L3-7 Benburb (Friendly)
SR 20/4/1896. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
The Junior team led 3-1 at half-time, Thistle's goal described as “lucky.” Thistle competed more after half-time but they still lost goals with regularity. At 6-1 Benburb “tried some gallery work” (Victorian showboating?) and conceded twice only to score again.
