  • Alas, the FH is unreadable in places, hence the gaps in both elevens, also affecting one Thistle sub. Alan Hansen #6 isn't readable, but on Monday, 6th August, 1973, the ET wrote: "ALAN HANSEN, teenage brother of Partick Thistle's international full-back John, will make his debut for the Jags tonight against Stenhousemuir at Ochilview, writes JIM BLAIR." Brilliantly, Thistle fan Ian Campbell was there and eyewitnessed the debut! With regards to the substitutions made, the FH merely states that Thistle's subs were "largely used". We've therefore presumed to include the 5 who are readable from the 6 listed. It's not ideal, but it's the resolve which gets closest to the truth.
