This evening we are proud to announce that the third Thistle Pin depicts none other than Jackie Husband!
Jackie had an association with our football club that is simply without parallel. Player, captain, coach, physio and kit-man. With the exception of a short spell as Queen of the South manager, Jackie Husband spent his entire adult life at the Jags in one capacity or another. His name proudly takes its place on the stand that replaced the Shed and he will always be known as Mr Partick Thistle.
We worked closely with Jackie’s family to pick out an image of him that holds special meaning for them and are delighted with the result. We are also grateful to Andy Imrie (Andy the Photo Doctor) for colourising the original black and white photograph, bringing this memory vividly to life for the current generation of Thistle fans.
