Bobby Watson
● Bobby Watson, 1989 (OTF)

born in Scotland

Robert Brynes M. Watson was born on Wednesday, 15th May, 1946, in Airdrie, North Lanarkshire. He had one spell as caretaker at Firhill.


(Mon-17-Oct-1988 ↔ Thu-10-Nov-1988; 24d)

Following the sacking of Billy Lamont, director Bobby Watson, who had managed at Airdrie and Motherwell, took over as interim manager. Playing 'The Sash' in the dressing room suggests he was not a Partick Thistle man. The sooner we were rid of that rubbish the better.

(42y,5m,7d) Sat-22-Oct-1988 [a] W4-1 Queen of the South (SFL First Division - game 11)
first – last of 3
(42y,5m,21d) Sat-05-Nov-1988 [a] L3-5 Raith Rovers (SFL First Division - game 13)

Hamilton gaffer John Lambie had been approached (whilst Lamont was still manager), but he turned the offer down. Post-Lamont, Eddie Hunter of Queen's Park did likewise. A new improved offer meant that John Lambie would be our next gaffer.

Bobby was in charge of Thistle for 3 games in total, as well as managing at Airdrie (1978-1982) and Motherwell (1983-1984).
