The Foundation is delighted to announce the launch of Thistle Pins.

What are Thistle Pins?

Thistle Pins are limited edition pin badges, depicting Thistle heroes past and present. We’ve teamed up with Peter Smith at Steelmen Pins, the architect behind a similar scheme at Motherwell, to deliver this members’ exclusive and original series of Thistle-related memorabilia.

How will Thistle Pins work?

Each month, we will release a new pin, which only members will be eligible to buy. There will be a limited run of each (100 pins) so collectors should join the Foundation if they haven’t already!

What is the McParland Pin?

We have now reached 600 active members of the Foundation, and we wanted to thank each member for their support. Therefore the first Thistle Pin – the McParland Pin – will be gifted to those existing members who helped us to reach that milestone.

How do I claim my McParland Pin?

We will be sending an email to all active members, linking them to a form to claim their McParland Pin. If you cannot find the email, or have forgotten your membership number, please contact us directly at

We strongly encourage members to opt to collect their pin in person where possible. You’ll have the opportunity to collect from our stalls on match days or at the Summer BBQ later this month.
