scorers in CAPS
1. Sat-12-Aug-1933 [h] D1-1 Hamilton Academical (Scottish Alliance)
GH 14/8/1933. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
2. Sat-19-Aug-1933 [a] L1-3 Kilmarnock (Scottish Alliance)
KH 24/8/1933. Johnstone, Campbell, Craven, Gemmell, McCartney, Brown, Donaldson, Anderson, Turnbull, Regan, Pinkerton. Scorer as yet unsourced.
A deserved win, if flattering scoreline, for Kilmarnock. In his profuse adoration for all things Kilmarnock, the local scribe forgot to report how the match actually went and who scored!
3. Sat-26-Aug-1933 [h] L0-4 Aberdeen (Scottish Alliance)
APJ 28/8/1933. Johnstone, Kennedy, Craven, Gemmell, Brown, McBurnie, Regan, Fraser, Duncan, Hastie, Pinkerton.
Young Dons in form at Firhill. They scored (37) and a 25-yarder beat Johnstone for 2-0 at half-time. Only 9 Thistle players came back on after half-time due to injury and it was one-way traffic. Thankfully Aberdeen took it easy and only scored twice more.
4. Sat-02-Sep-1933 [a] D4-4 Galston (Scottish Alliance)
GH 4/9/1933. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
5. Fri-08-Sep-1933 [a] L0-7 Celtic (Scottish Alliance)
GH 9/9/1933. Line-up as yet unsourced.
Thistle were second best apart from a better performance early in the second half. They never recovered from a hat-trick by a Celtic forward inside the first 20 minutes and it was 4-0 at half-time. Regan went close a few times but 3 more goals after half-time rubbed it in.
6. Sat-16-Sep-1933 [a] W5-3 St Johnstone (Scottish Alliance)
PRA 20/9/1933. Gourlay, Bennie, Craven, McBride, McCarthy, Brown, Persie, White, WYLLIE (2), REGAN, PINKERTON (2).
Saints scored early on then Pinkerton levelled. Soon Thistle went behind but Pinkerton scored again. A third goal for Saints after half-time put 3-2 up but Thistle came on to a strong game and two from Wyllie and one from Regan saw them home deservedly on play.
7. Sat-23-Sep-1933 [h] W4-1 Queen of the South (Scottish Alliance)
GH 25/9/1933. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
8. Sat-30-Sep-1933 [a] L1-2 Beith (Scottish Alliance)
GH 2/10/1933. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
9. Sat-07-Oct-1933 [h] L1-4 Heart of Midlothian (Scottish Alliance)
SC 9/10/1933. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
10. Sat-21-Oct-1933 [h] W6-0 Bo'ness (Scottish Alliance)
LG 27/10/1933. Gourlay, Fairbairn, Craven, Miller, Baigrie, Gemmell, Alston, STEWART, McLEOD (2), HASTIE, PINKERTON (2).
Bo'ness opened well and had some chances but once Pinkerton scored it was one-way traffic. Poor defending let in Stewart then Pinkerton converted a pen for 3-0 at half-time. A header by McLeod then goals by Hastie and McLeod again made for a big win.
11. Sat-28-Oct-1933 [a] L0-4 Motherwell (Scottish Alliance)
MT 3/11/1933. Gourlay, Stewart, Turnbull, Pritchard, Baigrie, Gemmell, Alston, Wyllie, McLeod, Hastie, Regan.
Thistle faded after a good start. Gourlay came out but failed to reach a cross and it was headed in (23). A second goal (39) put Motherwell in control. Two more goals (49 and 65) and Motherwell "won looking round". Thistle only showed in attack occasionally.
12. Sat-04-Nov-1933 [a] L2-6 Third Lanark (Scottish Alliance)
GH 6/11/1933. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
13. Sat-11-Nov-1933 [a] L1-2 Bo'ness (Scottish Alliance)
LG 17/11/1933. Gourlay, Miller, Craven, Brown, McCartney, Gemmell, ALSTON, Wyllie, Regan, Hastie, Pritchard.
Bo'ness were the better side. The crossbar saved Thistle who couldn't beat the locals' off-side trap. They went behind just on half-time. A defensive error let in Alston to level but a header finished off a fine move for 2-1. Brown's penalty was saved late on.
14. Sat-25-Nov-1933 [h] W3-2 Rangers (Scottish Alliance)
GH 27/11/1933. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
15. Sat-02-Dec-1933 [h] W8-1 Galston (Scottish Alliance)
GH 4/12/1933. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
16. Sat-09-Dec-1933 [h] L1-2 St Mirren (Scottish Alliance)
GH 11/12/1933. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
17. Sat-23-Dec-1933 [a] L1-3 Heart of Midlothian (Scottish Alliance)
SC 26/12/1933. KENNEDY. Line-up as yet unsourced, but also included Baigrie, Gourlay and Craigie.
Thistle matched Hearts in all aspects of the game except the "cut and thrust at close quarters". Kennedy was a threat all afternoon and opened the scoring (1) but overall Hearts took their chances, the pick of the goals being a 25-yarder that beat Gourlay.
18. Sat-30-Dec-1933 [h] W6-0 Beith (Scottish Alliance)
APJ 1/1/1934. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced. Date uncertain. May have been played 29/12.
19. Sat-06-Jan-1934 [a] L0-2 Aberdeen (Scottish Alliance)
APJ 8/1/1934. Gourlay, Brown, Craven, Baigrie, Donnelly, Gemmell, Alston, Craigie, McKay, Regan, Pinkerton.
Lamentably weak finishing in the first half denied dominant Aberdeen the lead by half-time. They finally went ahead just after the break and Thistle improved but Aberdeen's second came with 10 minutes remaining.
20. Sat-13-Jan-1934 [h] W5-0 Queen's Park (Scottish Alliance)
GH 15/1/1934. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
21. Sat-20-Jan-1934 [a] W3-1 St Mirren (Scottish Alliance)
GH 22/1/1934. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
22. Sat-03-Feb-1934 [a] W3-2 Queen of the South (Scottish Alliance)
GH 5/2/1934. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
23. Sat-10-Feb-1934 [a] L0-5 Celtic (Scottish 2nd XI Cup 1st Round)
GH 12/2/1934. Line-up as yet unsourced.
24. Sat-17-Feb-1934 [h] W3-2 Airdrieonians (Scottish Alliance)
CE 21/2/1934. Johnstone, Prior, Craven, Baigrie, McAllister, Pritchard, McLEAN, Wyllie, STARK (2), Hastie, Pinkerton.
The goalless 1st half was even in chances but it was Thistle who got on top by half-time. Airdrie scored (47) but Stark levelled (57). Again Airdrie went ahead only for McLean to make it 2-2. Stark got the winner (85). Airdrie remained "one of the degenerates down at the foot of the table"(!)
25. Sat-24-Feb-1934 [a] L1-3 Rangers (Scottish Alliance)
GH 26/2/1934. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
26. Sat-03-Mar-1934 [h] D5-5 Kilmarnock (Scottish Alliance)
GH 5/3/1934. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
27. Tue-20-Mar-1934 [h] W1-0 Hibernian (Scottish Alliance)
DC 21/3/1934. Wilson, Prior, Craven, Brown, Baigrie, Pritchard, Smith, McKay, McLeod, HASTIE, Regan.
Despite the excellent conditions for football it was a scrappy, dull affair. Hastie scored the only goal of the game in the first half. On chances created, it should have been more. Wilson played with a dislocated figure in the second half but Hibs' forwards were poor.
28. Tue-27-Mar-1934 [h] L2-3 St Johnstone (Scottish Alliance)
DET & PRA 28/3/1934. Johnstone, Prior, Craven, Baigrie, McAllister, Pritchard, Regan, "Newman", CRAIGIE, WYLLIE, Pinkerton.
A header from a long ball punted into the box with seconds to go gave St Johnstone the dramatic win. Thistle had equalised twice before half-time through Wylie then Craigie. Stubborn defending thwarted Thistle after half-time and the winner was so late the game wasn't restarted.
29. Sat-31-Mar-1934 [a] W5-1 Airdrieonians (Scottish Alliance)
GH 2/4/1934. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
30. Mon-02-Apr-1934 [h] W5-1 Third Lanark (Scottish Alliance)
DC 3/4/1934. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
31. Sat-07-Apr-1934 [a] L3-5 Hibernian (Scottish Alliance)
SC 9/4/1934. REGAN, WYLLIE (J), WYLLIE (G) (pen). Line-up as yet unsourced.
Regan pounced on a loose ball (10) but Hibs equalised, Thistle having stopped looking for off-side. Hibs got on top and it was 3-1 at half-time. Wyllie (J) scored soon after half-time. Hibs scored twice more before Wyllie (G) converted a late penalty.
32. Thu-12-Apr-1934 [a] D2-2 Queen's Park (Scottish Alliance)
DC 13/4/1934. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
33. Thu-26-Apr-1934 [h] W5-2 Celtic (Scottish Alliance)

34. Sat-28-Apr-1934 [a] W2-0 Hamilton Academical (Scottish Alliance)
