12 February 2019  – Dennistoun Thistle 1 – 6 North Kelvin United – Milton – KO 8pm

Tonight we played our first friendly! It was a bit of a nervous affair for everyone involved. It was Chris’ first game as a manager and many of the players first but for a first run out it actually wasn’t too bad!

North Kelvin United is a well-established Saturday afternoon side and it was great of them to agree to give us a run out for our first game and they left us with plenty of things to work on for the future.

The team started out strongly and kept the game tight to begin with, but in the last twenty minutes the score line went from 1-3 to 1-6 as the team tired.

As with any new team not knowing your teammates well and communication issues also came into play but there were lots of positives to take away from the game with some great spells of play and even getting our first goal on the board.

We’re looking to play lots more friendlies in the run up to the 2019/20 season beginning, so if you have a team that’s looking for a bit of competition then let us know and we’ll be happy to arrange something!

We’re also still looking for players, fans and sponsors too, so if you’d like to be involved in some way or find out more about the club then please get in touch by emailing dennistounthistle@gmail.com and we’ll be happy to talk.

Alternatively if you just want to keep up to date with us as the season goes on then why not follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram?!
