scorers in CAPS
1. Sat-11-Aug-1934 [a] W1-0 Aberdeen (Scottish Alliance)
APJ 13/8/1934. Gourlay, Young, Murray, Baigrie, McAllister, Pritchard, Miller, Wyllie (J), WYLLIE (G), Stewart, Regan.
7,000 saw Aberdeen have the greater share of the play but their finishing was weak. Wyllie scored with 10 minutes to go and a draw was the least the homesters deserved but a late goal ruled off-side was all they could muster.
2. Sat-18-Aug-1934 [h] D1-1 Hamilton Academical (Scottish Alliance)
GH 20/8/1934. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
3. Sat-25-Aug-1934 [a] W3-0 Queen of the South (Scottish Alliance)
GH 27/8/1934. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
4. Fri-31-Aug-1934 [h] L1-6 Rangers (Scottish Alliance)
DC 1/9/1934. BALLANTYNE. Line-up as yet unsourced.
5. Fri-07-Sep-1934 [a] L0-5 Heart of Midlothian (Scottish Alliance)
SC 8/9/1934. Line-up as yet unsourced.
Despite Thistle fielding a strong XI for this Friday night match, Hearts' superiority at half-back and better finishing made for a big score but the margin was slightly flattering.
6. Sat-15-Sep-1934 [h] W5-1 St Johnstone (Scottish Alliance)
PRA 19/9/1934. REGAN (2), HASTIE (3). Line-up as yet unsourced.
The match was more or less won and lost by half-time. Hastie scored (1) but after some persistent pressure Saints equalised then had a goal disallowed. They fell away badly however and goals by Regan (2) and Hastie made it 4-1. Hastie completed his hat-trick in the 2nd half.
7. Wed-19-Sep-1934 [a] D3-3 St Johnstone (Scottish Alliance)
PRA. 22/9/1934. Wilson, Young, Thomson, Baigrie, Prior, Pritchard, NEISH, Lyle, HAMILTON (2), Stewart, Regan.
Goals following a free-kick and a smart low shot gave Saints a 2-goal lead. Hamilton scored off a post for 2-1 but a lob over Wilson made it 3-1 at half-time. Neish tucked away a parried save and Hamilton drove home for a point. Thistle were unlucky not to score a 4th.
8. Sat-29-Sep-1934 [h] W3-1 Kilmarnock (Scottish Alliance)
KH 5/10/1934. Duncan, Young, Prior, Robertson, Murray, Pritchard, NEISH, Wyllie, Lyle, Hastie, REGAN. Remaining Thistle scorer not reported.
Killie started well and hit the post early on but Neish opened for Thistle soon after. Kilmarnock equalised but a mistake at the back let in Regan for 2-1 at half-time. Lyle's penalty was saved, the keeper injured in the resulting scramble. A Regan cross was headed in for 3-1. Tough match.
9. Sat-06-Oct-1934 [a] D4-4 Kilmarnock (Scottish Alliance)
KH 12/10/1934. Johnstone, Young, Prior, Baigrie, McAllister, Pritchard, HASTIE, NEISH, McLENNAN (2), Stewart, Regan.
In dreadful weather and against the elements Hastie gave Thistle the lead but Kilmarnock hit back with 3 goals by half-time. Things looked worse soon after the break when a penalty made it 4 but in a remarkable fightback Neish and McLennan (2) earned a hard-won point.
10. Sat-13-Oct-1934 [h] W3-2 Queen's Park (Scottish Alliance)
GH 15/10/1934. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
11. Sat-27-Oct-1934 [a] D2-2 St Mirren (Scottish Alliance)
GH 29/10/1934. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
12. Sat-03-Nov-1934 [h] W3-2 Hibernian (Scottish Alliance)
SC 5/11/1934. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
13. Sat-10-Nov-1934 [a] D3-3 Motherwell (Scottish Alliance)
MT 16/11/1934. Gourlay, Young, Kennedy, Prior, McDonald, Pritchard, NESS (2), Wyllie (J), WYLLIE (G), Ballantyne, Stewart.
Ness and Ballantyne shone as Thistle took the lead through Wyllie (G). Almost immediately Motherwell levelled then Young went off injured. Motherwell scored after half-time but Ness equalised then the process was repeated for 3-3. An entertaining game and a 10-man fighting point.
14. Sat-17-Nov-1934 [a] D1-1 Dundee (Scottish Alliance)
DC 19/11/1934. Gourlay, Prior, Duncan, Wyllie (J), Anderson, Pritchard, Ness, McCallum, WYLLIE (G), Stewart, Bain.
Dundee deserved their first half lead but the second half saw Thistle take command and "waltz round a woefully weak home team". Wyllie scored the equaliser but it should have been more. The Dundee keeper and bad luck were to blame.
15. Sat-24-Nov-1934 [a] W3-2 Beith (Scottish Alliance)
GH 26/11/1934. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
16. Sat-01-Dec-1934 [h] W9-2 Motherwell (Scottish Alliance)
MT 7/12/1934. Gourlay, Prior, Black, WHITE, Quigg, McAllister, Neish, HASTIE (5), WYLLIE (J), STEWART, BAIN.
A 2-goal lead for Motherwell gave no indication what was to come. 7 goals in a remarkable scoring burst through Stewart, White, Hastie (4) and Bain made it 7-2 at half-time. Wyllie headed home a Neish free-kick (47) and Hastie scored from close in (75) to end the fun.
17. Sat-08-Dec-1934 [a] D2-2 Hibernian (Scottish Alliance)
SC 10/12/1934. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
18. Sat-15-Dec-1934 [h] W2-1 Beith (Scottish Alliance)
GH 17/12/1934. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
19. Tue-25-Dec-1934 [h] W3-0 Aberdeen (Scottish Alliance)
APJ 26/12/1934. Johnstone, Prior, Thomson, Kennedy, Quigg, Pritchard, NEISH (2), Wyllie (J), Stark, Hastie, BAIN.
It took Thistle until just on half-time to break down the Dons defence when a Neish shot was diverted into his own goal by the keeper. Brilliant saves by Johnstone maintained the lead then Neish and Bain scored in the dying minutes.
20. Sun-30-Dec-1934 [a] W4-2 Queen's Park (Scottish Alliance)
GH 31/12/1934. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
21. Sat-05-Jan-1935 [h] L0-2 Heart of Midlothian (Scottish Alliance)
SC 7/1/1935. Line-up as yet unsourced.
22. Sat-12-Jan-1935 [a] D1-1 Rangers (Scottish Alliance)
GH 14/1/1935. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
23. Sat-19-Jan-1935 [h] W1-0 Celtic (Scottish Alliance)
GH 21/1/1935. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced.
24. Sat-02-Feb-1935 [a] W6-3 Hamilton Academical (Scottish Alliance)
SP 3/2/1935. Line-up and scorers as yet unsourced.
25. Tue-26-Feb-1935 [h] D1-1 Celtic (Scottish 2nd XI Cup 1st Round)
GH 27/2/1935. Gourlay, Prior, Bulloch, Elliott, Quigg, Baigrie, Neish, Wylie (J), Lyle, HASTIE, Regan.
Celtic were on top in the first half and led 1-0 at half-time. After the break Thistle turned the tables and a goal by Regan earned a replay. 14,000 saw an equitable draw. A testament to the popularity of what was known as the "sixpenny gate".
26. Sat-02-Mar-1935 [a] L1-3 Galston (Scottish Alliance)
SP 3/3/1935 & KH 8/3/1935. Line-up as yet unsourced. (1 og.)
Galston had the nippier forwards. It was even until Galston scored on 30 minutes. A second goal followed then Thistle missed a penalty. The second half was mostly the home team who scored again. Thistle scored late on (an og) and the game ended in an ill-tempered melee.
27. Wed-06-Mar-1935 [a] L0-5 Celtic (Scottish 2nd XI Cup 1st Round replay)
GH 7/3/1935. Gourlay, Prior, Bulloch, Baigrie, Quigg, McLeod, Neish, Wyllie (J), Lyle, Hastie, Regan.
11,000 saw a disappointingly one-sided replay in which Celtic were on top throughout. Only Gourlay emerged with any credit. They opened the scoring (9) then a penalty was blasted over but the ref ordered a retake for 2-0 (19). 3 goals in the last 10 minutes made for a poor exit.
28. Sat-09-Mar-1935 [h] W6-0 Galston (Scottish Alliance)
KH 15/3/1935. WYLLIE (J) (3), WYLLIE (G), STEWART, McDONALD. Line-up as yet unsourced.
A week later revenge was sweet. Stewart scored in 4 minutes then Wylie (J) (2), McDonald and Wyllie (G) made it 5-0, the Galston defence all over the place. Wyllie (J) scored from 25 yards (66). Galston "displayed a woeful lack of courage".
29. Tue-19-Mar-1935 [h] W2-1 St Mirren (Scottish Alliance)
GH 20/3/1925. STEWART (2). Line-up as yet unsourced. The line-up also included Prior, Quigg and several trialists.
St Mirren took the lead (17) but Stewart levelled (35). He scored the winner (67).
30. Wed-27-Mar-1935 [h] D3-3 Dundee (Scottish Alliance)
DC 27/3/1935. Gourlay, Black, Prior, Quigg, White, Baigrie, Lyle, Wyllie (J), STEWART, PRITCHARD (2), Brown.
The first half was drab, the second much better. Pritchard gave Thistle the lead (20) but it was 1-1 (35). He scored again (55) but it was 2-2 soon afterwards. Stewart scored (67) but once again it was all level (70). A rousing finish saw the Dundee keeper save a point.
31. Tue-02-Apr-1935 [h] D3-3 Queen of the South (Scottish Alliance)
GH 3/4/1935. LYLE, REGAN (2). Line-up as yet unsourced.
32. Mon-29-Apr-1935 [a] L0-6 Celtic (Scottish Alliance)
GH 30/4/1935. Line-up as yet unsourced.
