Thistle coaching staff show how it is done

Thursday 29th November 2012

Partick Thistle manager Jackie McNamara, assistant manager Simon Donnelly and coach Alan Archibald all took on goal making roles in the Jags’ reserve side’s 4-4 draw with Annan at Galabank on Tuesday night.

The Firhill boss, who is now 39, hit a 30 yard pass to striker Mark McGuigan to level the score at 1-1, however Thistle were 2-1 down at half-time when McNamara substituted himself.

Annan scored again before Donnelly, who turns 38 on Saturday, set up the second for McGuigan with a clever flicked pass before 34 year old Archibald set up McGuigan to complete his hat-trick and make the score 4-3.

Thistle youngster Dale Keenan tied the scores with 10 minutes to go.
