We are delighted to announce that the first Thistle Pin available for purchase (£10 including P&P), exclusively by our members, is… the Doolan Pin!

This one really is a cracker. Kris helped us by picking out his favourite photo from his time at Thistle (a Donald Wilson classic), and we are really pleased to have been able to immortalise him in this unique piece of memorabilia.

This limited edition run means that only 121 of these are available for purchase: one for each of Kris’ goals in his time at Thistle. Of course, we all know he scored 122, as that goal against Morton should have stood. So we’re keeping the 122nd pin for the man himself!

To reserve your Doolan Pin, you need to be a member of The Jags Foundation. We sent out an email to all our members this morning with a link to the form to reserve your place. If you are a member and didn’t receive this email, please email us ASAP to avoid the risk of missing out.

If you are successful in reserving a pin, we will confirm this by email within 48 hours of you completing the form, and will send you a further link to pay for your Pin.

What’s the latest with the McParland Pins?

On 4th July, we reached 600 members of the Foundation, and the free McParland Pin was our “thank you” to those who helped us to reach that milestone. Many of you have already claimed and received your Pin, but some have not.
After the Arbroath cup game this evening, we will be making the McParland Pin available to all of our members until they run out.
So if you’re among the first 600 members, and don’t have your McParland Pin yet, act now to avoid disappointment! You can collect your pin:
  • at the Jackie Husband stand stall before kick-off
  • at the John Lambie stand stall at half-time
Or you can email membership@thejagsfoundation.co.uk no later than 7pm on Wednesday 31st August to request delivery by post.

Any left-over McParland Pins will be available for collection at the EGM on Thursday 1st September for any member who doesn’t yet have one. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!

What about September’s Pin?

We’ve also taken delivery of the September Pin, which will be made available for reservation soon. Keep an eye on your emails, our socials and the website so you don’t miss out!

And remember, Thistle Pins are a members exclusive opportunity. So sign-up to join The Jags Foundation if you haven’t done so already!

As the Thistle Pins initiative grows, we would like to thank Steelmen Pins for their help with developing and delivering our version of their original idea. They have been fantastic and we hope to sustain this partnership for many more Pins in the future.
