scorers in CAPS
1. Sat-08-Aug-1931 [h] W7-0 Morton (Scottish Alliance)
GH 10/8/1931. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
2. Sat-15-Aug-1931 [a] W4-1 Falkirk (Scottish Alliance)
FH 22/8/1931. Wilson, Hogg, Fitzsimmons, Miller, Murray, McGillivray, TURNER (3), Cope, WYLLIE, McGourty, Simpson.
The first and best goal of the game came for Falkirk (1). A hat-trick by Turner and a single strike by Wyllie made for an emphatic win, indeed the Falkirk keeper kept the score down. A strong Thistle side had much more to offer on the day.
3. Tue-18-Aug-1931 [h] W4-3 Celtic (Scottish Alliance)
GH 19/8/1931. WYLLIE (2), TURNER, McGOURTY (pen). Line-up as yet unsourced.
Celtic had the better start and took the lead from the pen spot but Wyllie scored twice then Celtic scored again for 2-2 at half-time. Turner and McGourty (penalty) extended the lead and Thistle were on top for most of the second half. A late Celtic goal made it look closer.
4. Sat-22-Aug-1931 [h] W5-3 Falkirk (Scottish Alliance)
FH 26/8/1931. Wilson, Hogg (R), McFarlane, Miller, Hogg (A), McGillivray, TURNER (2), Pope, WYLLIE (2), Murray, JENKINS.
Thistle hit Falkirk with two quick goals from Turner and Jenkins but Falkirk hit back and levelled before half-time despite some fine goalkeeping by Wilson. They went ahead (53) but 2 goals in 2 minutes by Wyllie then Turner made it 5-3. Thistle went top.
5. Sat-29-Aug-1931 [a] W4-1 Leith Athletic (Scottish Alliance)
SC 31/8/1931. WYLLIE (2), JENKINS, McGOURTY. Line-up as yet unsourced.
Wyllie got the only goal of the first half. He scored again after half-time as did Jenkins and McGourty. Leith sored (83). The scoreline flattered Thistle. Leith were better than the score would suggest.
6. Sat-05-Sep-1931 [h] W1-0 Beith (Scottish Alliance)
GH 7/9/1931. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
7. Fri-11-Sep-1931 [a] D0-0 Rangers (Scottish Alliance)
GH 12/9/1931. DR 10/9/1931 (predicted) Wilson, Hogg (R), A N Other, Miller, Hogg (A), Boardman, Turner, Jenkins, Morrison, Murray, Simpson.
8. Sat-19-Sep-1931 [h] W4-2 Hamilton Academical (Scottish Alliance)
SC 21/9/1931. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
9. Sat-26-Sep-1931 [a] D2-2 Kilmarnock (Scottish Alliance)
KH 1/10/1931. Wilson, Hogg (R), Fitzsimmons, Hogg (A), McAllister, McGillivray, Pope, MILLER, Wyllie, Murray, JENKINS.
Thistle had the best of the early exchanges then Kilmarnock got on top and took the lead. In a rare attack Jenkins headed home a Pope cross to level then poor defending gifted Miller an open goal for 2-1 at half-time. A goal following a free-kick was protested as hand-ball but it stood.
10. Sat-03-Oct-1931 [h] W2-1 Aberdeen (Scottish Alliance)
APJ 5/10/1931. Wilson, Hogg, Fitzsimmons, Miller. Hogg (A), McGILLIVRAY, Turner, POPE, Wyllie, Murray, Jenkins.
League leaders and unbeaten, Thistle survived early Aberdeen pressure then Pope put them 1-up. In the 2nd half Jenkins skied a good chance then Aberdeen equalised but McGillivray got a late winner, the Dons' defence looking none too clever.
11. Wed-07-Oct-1931 [a] L0-2 Dundee (Scottish Alliance)
DC 8/10/1931. Wilson, Hogg, Fitzsimmons, Miller, Boardman, McGillivray, Pope, Jenkins, Wyllie, Murray, Simpson.
Dundee smashed Thistle's unbeaten record with a strong display. They were second best for most of the game. A 35-yard run and the ball was slipped past the advancing Wilson. Dundee hit the post then the bar before a scrambled second.
12. Sat-10-Oct-1931 [h] D1-1 Heart of Midlothian (Scottish Alliance)
SC 12/10/1931. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
13. Sat-17-Oct-1931 [h] L1-3 Third Lanark (Scottish Alliance)
GH 19/10/1931. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
14. Sat-24-Oct-1931 [a] W5-3 Third Lanark (Scottish Alliance)
GH 26/10/1931. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
15. Sat-31-Oct-1931 [h] W5-1 Ayr United (Scottish Alliance)
GH 2/11/1931. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
16. Sat-07-Nov-1931 [a] D2-2 Motherwell (Scottish Alliance)
MT 13/11/1931. Wilson, Hogg, Fitzsimmons, McAllister, Donnelly, Miller, Pope, Grove, WYLLIE, Murray, McGillivray. Player credited with first Thistle goal as yet unsourced.
Motherwell took the lead (20) then controversy struck when a shot was allegedly fisted past the keeper (possibly by Wyllie) for 1-1. Wyllie scored after half-time (off-side vigorously protested) but a late goal gave vexed Motherwell some consolation.
17. Sat-14-Nov-1931 [h] W3-0 Airdrieonians (Scottish Alliance)
CL 21/11/1931. MILLER, WYLLIE, POPE. Line-up as yet unsourced.
18. Sat-21-Nov-1931 [a] W1-0 Airdrieonians (Scottish Alliance)
CE 25/11/1931. Wilson, Hogg (R), Fitzsimmons, HOGG (A), McAllister, Miller, Ness, Grove, Morrison, Murray, Jenkins.
Strangely, Airdrie had the best of the chances and more of the play. The goal that separated the teams was a cracking 30-yard free-kick from Hogg which nestled in the top corner. Still top of the league.
19. Sat-28-Nov-1931 [a] W3-1 Heart of Midlothian (Scottish Alliance)
SC 30/11/1931. MORRISON, POPE, MURRAY. Line-up as yet unsourced.
10,000 saw 2nd v 1st - and Hearts' first home defeat of the season. Poor defensive work made it easy for Morrison, Pope and Murray to give Thistle a 3-0 lead at half-time. Hearts improved after the break and had a goal disallowed (not over the line) but they did score before the end.
20. Sat-05-Dec-1931 [h] L1-2 Rangers (Scottish Alliance)
GH 7/12/1931. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
21. Sat-12-Dec-1931 [h] W2-1 Queen's Park (Scottish Alliance)
GH 14/12/1931. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
22. Sat-19-Dec-1931 [a] L0-3 Aberdeen (Scottish Alliance)
APJ 21/12/1931. Wilson, Hogg, Fitzsimmons, Boardman, McAllister, Miller, Pope, Grove, Wyllie, Murray, Jenkins.
Sitting top of the league but with more games played than the chasers, Thistle were largely on the back foot and they found themselves 2-down at half-time. A quick third settled things although Thistle had their chances after half-time.
23. Fri-25-Dec-1931 [h] L3-4 St Mirren (Scottish Alliance)
GH 26/12/1931. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.

27. Sat-06-Feb-1932 [h] L0-1 Motherwell (Scottish 2nd XI Cup 1st Round)
MT 12/2/1931. Wilson, Hogg, Fitzsimmons, Elliott, McAllister, Boardman, Jenkins, Pope, Simpson, Murray, Turner.
A well taken goal after about 20 mins put Thistle behind. The visitors were good value for their lead at half-time. Thistle had lots of pressure in the second half but could make nothing of the Motherwell defence.
28. Sat-13-Feb-1932 [a] L0-3 Celtic (Scottish Alliance)
GH 15/2/1932. Line-up as yet unsourced.
