You Couldn't Make It Up!

by Jack Little

On 23 November 1929 Thistle 'A' (reserves) beat Motherwell 'A' 5-1 at Fir Park in a Scottish Alliance match. Among the scorers was Reid (possibly Peter?) who grabbed a hat-trick. The Motherwell Times 29/11, lamenting the local team's performance, added that Reid was a Motherwell newsagent. Talk about ensuring you get your name in the papers! [Co-incidentally the "big" team beat Motherwell 6-1 at Firhill on the same day.]
