“For we have a promise that we shall fulfill…”

Off the back of our successful summer barbecue and World Cup gatherings, TJF will be hosting a pre-match party at The Record Factory ahead of our Fifth Round Scottish Cup match against Rangers.

Pre-match entertainment

Doors will open from midday on Sunday 12th February, running through until around 3pm. The Record Factory is situated towards the foot of Byres Road, literally round the corner from Kelvinhall Subway Station.

This event is open to members and non-member alike, and children are welcome.

There will also be a free buffet, compliments of TJF.

Camera Obscura bassist and TJF member Gavin Dunbar #633 will feature as our DJ.

Onwards to Ibrox

Part of the reason for holding a pre-match fans event for a fixture like this is so that Thistle fans can then travel safely and with confidence to cheer on the team.

Our intention is to travel from The Record Factory onto Ibrox as a group by public transport, providing safety in numbers.

If you need any assistance on the day, make sure to speak to one of the TJF board members at the event, and we’ll make sure you’re looked after by your fellow fans. We want to encourage as many Jags fans as possible to buy a ticket for this fixture.

RSVP and acknowledgements

It would be helpful if Jags fans could complete this survey beforehand, so that we have a decent indication of numbers before the event.

We are extremely grateful to Paul McJimpsey for making the venue available for this event.

Other events

We are aware that the Club is also running an enhanced pre-match hospitality package on the afternoon of the Cup game, and obviously would encourage anyone so inclined to take-up that opportunity.

TJF has been working with the Club to ensure that our event does not in any way detract from their own match day plans. To that end, the announcement of our event at The Record Factory, originally planned for last week, was delayed, to give the Club a “free run” at publicising their hospitality package.

We are grateful for their co-operation on this, and hope that both events are a roaring success (and backed-up with a famous and long overdue victory on the South Side of Glasgow).
