You Couldn't Make It Up!

by Jack Little

For readers of an older age group…Thistle sign a comedian! There have certainly been a few comedians at Firhill over the years - but not as suggested by Peter Hendry in the "Evening Times" on 8/9/1962. In his report of the Thistle v Clyde game (5-1!) he described the 1st goal by George Smith in 3 minutes as having been made by a 30-yard run and pass by "wee Dickie Henderson". He did, of course, mean Dickie Williamson. Perhaps he was thinking about the comedian's 3rd TV series that had recently finished.
