Celtic attacked from the start and kept Thistle defending for the first 10 minutes, but their opener was not long delayed. Thistle came back into it and were rewarded in 30 mins when Doonan smashed the ball into the roof of the net following a corner. Celtic's winner came in the second half.

MT 3/11/1944. Henderson, Cummings, Crawford, Hamill, Brown, Gillespie, Glover, Cupples, DOONAN, Murphy, Lang.
Motherwell's stiffest league test to date saw them take an early lead then Cummings saw his pen saved. Doonan grazed the bar on half-time but he equalised with “a grand goal fully deserved” (55). Ten mins later a solo effort won the points in a thriller.
9. Sat-04-Nov-1944 [h] W3-2 Airdrieonians (Glasgow District Reserve Football League)
ACA 11/11/1944.NEWALL. Line-up as yet unsourced. Remaining scorers not reported.
Trailing to a goal scored (32), Newall got Thistle back on level terms a minute later. Airdrie took the lead on the stroke of half-time but two goals (uncredited) in the second half earned Thistle the points.

A hat-trick by Motherwell's No 9 was the highlight but it could have been worse - they missed two penalties (one saved). There were some decent performances from Thistle but they were second best. Husband was lamed after 15 mins and was unable to kick the ball.
1944-45 Reserves summary notes

P26 W16 D0 L10 (1.846 ppg)

Historical PT Reserves average: 1.462 ppg (@ 22-Aug-2023)
  • The points-per-game measurements (ppg) above are calculated on the same principle as the first-team's all games category, and are based on 1 point for a draw and 3 points for a win across all eras.
  • Final League Position: cannot be verified. Completed fixtures ranged from 21 to 24 (Thistle 24). Bizarrely, some clubs played 4 extra fixtures (2H & 2A). Statistical quirk: in 24 games, Thistle did not draw any of them.
