Match Report


Ahead of their famous Sportsman’s Dinner at Bo’ness Town Hall, The Thistle had the massive task of playing top opposition in the form of West Lothian league rivals, Uphall Station at Albyn Park.

Having gone behind after 25 mins, Thistle rallied.  Heeps scored from two free kicks with deadly accuracy before half time.  Into the second half, Uphall equalised due to slack defening at a corner.

Orr then restored the viitor’s lead with a conversion from a Heeps cut-back, before McCrae made the victory all the more convincing with a cracking strike, courtesy of a S McLean cross.

The Thistle will now travel to face Stirling & District AFA side, Drumpellier in the second round of the Cup.




Scorers: Heeps (2), Orr, McCrae
