● Peter Cormack, 1982 (PAN)

born in Scotland

Peter Barr Cormack was born on Wednesday, 17th July, 1946, in Edinburgh. He had one spell as manager at Firhill.


(Fri-05-Dec-1980 ↔ Sat-12-May-1984; 3y,5m,7d)

Third choice Cormack, who'd been playing at Hibs, was getting his first chance at management, and it seemed like a decent appointment, even if there was an element of rookie doubt. “Peter Cormack was the complete player and can become a first-class manager” said one Bill Shankly. On a personal level, Bertie Auld expressed happiness for Peter, but threatened legal action all the same. What a cheek! £19,000 was demanded, but £2,000 settled the mattter.

(34y,4m,19d) Sat-06-Dec-1980 [h] L0-1 Celtic (SFL Premier Division - game 17)
first – last of 182
(37y,9m,25d) Sat-12-May-1984 [a] W2-1 Falkirk (SFL First Division - game 39)

Alas, relegation and failure to gain promotion tried the patience of the Firhill faithful, who pressed for change. Unusually, Cormack announced his intention to resign a few months before actually doing so, basically quitting rather than taking up a part-time appointment. Somewhat nobly, he stated that he would remain in place until 31st May. The final game of the season was his last involvement.

Peter was in charge of Thistle for 182 games, as well as managing at Anorthosis (1985-1986), Botswana (1986-1987), Cowdenbeath (2000) and Greenock Morton (2000-2002).
