MANAGERIAL SPELL

(Tue-04-Jan-2005 ↔ Tue-27-Mar-2007; 2y,2m,23d)

After the failed Whyte-Britton experiment, the board sought a John-Lambie-type character, and Dick Campbell was given the Thistle job just after New Year, 2005. A three-and-a-half year contract demonstrated a great deal of faith that he could deliver. He would be assisted by former fan's favourite, Jimmy Bone.

(51y,1m,17d) Sat-08-Jan-2005 [h] D0-0 Heart of Midlothian (Scottish Cup 3rd Round)
first – last of 116
(53y,4m,3d) Sun-25-Mar-2007 [h] L0-1 Airdrie United (SFL First Division - game 30)

Disastrously, they could not save Thistle from another ignominious drop down to the third tier of Scottish football. By the skin-of-his-teeth through the play-offs, Campbell returned Thistle to the First Division the following season, but struggled to win the fans over, and he couldn't survive a poor run of form early in 2007. Following a weekend loss at home to bottom side Airdrie, he was summoned to a mid-morning board meeting two days later, and sacked with more than a year of his contract still to run. Bone took the reins 'til the end of the season.

Dick was in charge of Thistle for 116 games in total, as well as managing at Cowdenbeath (1987), Dunfermline Athletic (1999), Brechin City (2000-2005), Ross County (2007), Forfar Athletic (2008-2015) and Arbroath (2016 to date).
