You Couldn't Make It Up!

by Jack Little

Jimmy Walker's decision to return to his native USA early in 1954 prompted Thistle to present him with a wristwatch. Several were set aside by a company for Thistle to choose from but before that could happen their premises were broken into and watches to the value of £100 (around £2,700 today) were stolen. He was, however, given a presentation by the Thistle Supporters' Club at half-time in the cup-tie with Airdrie on 30/1/1954.
