MP 8/8/2007. Samushonga, Sellars, Montgomery, Little, Robertson, Trialist, Trialist, Trialist, Gallagher, Russell, Trialist. (Culter, Cullen, O'Keefe, Gibbon, Smith, Trialist.)
Men against boys! A strong, physical game and the young Thistle side struggled against the older and more physical junior side.

8. Sun-23-Sep-2007 [a] L1-3 East Fife (Scottish Reserve League U-19)
MP 26/9/2007. CULLEN. Line-up as yet unsourced.
Down to earth with a bump, the Fifers were a different proposition. Cullen gave Thistle the lead but they went down 3-1 in the end.
9. Sun-30-Sep-2007 [h] D3-3 Ayr United (Scottish Reserve League U-19)
MP 20/10/2007. ROBERTSON, EAGLESHAM, Trialist. Line-up as yet unsourced.

13. Tue-23-Oct-2007 [h] W3-0 Stranraer (Scottish Reserve League Cup section game)
MP 27/10/2007. Tuffey, Strachan, McKinley, Little, Trialist, Harkins, Chaplain, Di GIACOMO, Keegan, ROBERTS, McStay. (O'KEEFE, Robertson, Eaglesham.)
DiGiacomo slotted a Roberts pass past the keeper for 1-0 (8). The scorer then turned supplier to cross for Roberts to head in (32). All three subs replaced more experienced players at half-time and a Roberts cut-back was tapped in by O'Keefe. Should have been more.
14. Sun-28-Oct-2007 [a] W1-0 Ross County (Scottish Reserve League U-19)
MP 24/11/2007. POTTS. Line-up as yet unsourced.

MP 24/11/2007. MURRAY, DI GIACOMO, CONNOR, DONNELLY. Line-up as yet unsourced.
A comfortable win on Lesser Hampden's new synthetic surface. Murray opened the scoring (30) then Di Giacomo made it 2-0 (34). Goals by Connor (52) and Donnelly (88) made for an easy win.
16. Sun-04-Nov-2007 [h] W1-0 Stenhousemuir (Scottish Reserve League U-19)
MP 24/11/2007. O'KEEFE. Line-up as yet unsourced.
17. Sun-25-Nov-2007 [h] L0-3 Alloa Athletic (Scottish Reserve League U-19)
MP 1/12/2007. Line-up as yet unsourced.
Three second-half goals by Alloa meant the first defeat in the league since September.
18. Tue-27-Nov-2007 [a] D3-3 Airdrie United (Scottish Reserve League Cup section game)
MP 1/12/2007. Tuffey, Brown, O'KEEFE, GIBSON, Robertson (M), Little, Connor, Strachan, DI GIACOMO, Donnelly, Murray. (Eaglesham, Vezza, Cullen.)
Airdrie scored (4) when a parried save by Tuffey was knocked in. Donnelly flighted over a free-kick for O'Keefe to head home (25). It was 2-1 just on half-time but Donnelly set up Gibson (66). 71 mins saw Airdrie score again only for Di Giacomo to chip the ball over the keeper (74). It could have gone either way late on.
19. Mon-03-Dec-2007 [a] L0-2 Queen's Park (Scottish Reserve League U-19)
MP 15/12/2007. Line-up as yet unsourced. Thistle entered the winter break after 13 league matches sitting 10th with 18 points (W5, D5 L5, F15, A19.)

23. Tue-05-Feb-2008 [a] D1-1 Hamilton Academical (Scottish Reserve League Cup section game)
MP 12/2/2008. Hinchcliffe, Vezza, Brown, McSTAY, Robertson (M), Little, McKinlay, McKeown, Harkins, Ardalany, Murray. (Quinn, Eaglesham.)
Thistle had a number of 1st half chances but it was goalless at half-time. Close things and good goalkeeping continued but a shot from the edge of the box put Hamilton ahead against the run of play (60). Harkins had a "goal" ruled off-side but McStay's 25-yarder (88) was the least they deserved on play.
