St Mirren entertain Dundee United in a Scottish Premiership game on Wednesday, live on BT Sport with a 7.45pm kick-off.
The Paisley side competed in the first ever season of the Scottish Football League in 1890/91 and finished in eighth place. Here are 10 other things you may, or may not know, about Saints.
1 St Mirren are named after the patron saint of the town, although the spelling is slightly different as the founder of the church on the site where Paisley Abbey sits was known as Saint Mirin.
2 The club were founded in 1877 and moved to their former Love Street home in 1894, where they played their games until 2009.
3 St Mirren won the Barcelona Cup back in 1922 when they saw off Notts County in the final - the cup was played to mark Barca’s move to their Les Courts ground.
4 David McCrae is the club’s all-time top goalscorer, having hit 251 goals from 1923 to 1934.
5 The Paisley side scored 100 league goals as they romped to the Division Two title in 1967/68. Peter Kane scored 25 goals, Jim Blair got 18 and Bobby Adamson weighed in with 17.
6 St Mirren are the only club to have dispensed with the managerial services of Sir Alex Ferguson. Fergie was in charge from 1974 to 1978 and earned promotion to the Scottish Premier Division but was dismissed after several disagreements with the club’s board.
7 St Mirren were the first and only Scottish winners of the Anglo-Scottish Cup when they defeated Bristol City 5-1 on aggregate in season 1979/80. It was revenge for losing to the Ashton Gate side two years earlier.
8 Midfielder Hugh Murray is the club’s record appearance holder, playing 462 games during a 15-year stay that began in 1997.
9 St Mirren’s first goal at their current home on Greenhill Road was scored by Dennis Wyness in a 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock on January 31, 2009, after Kevin Kyle had given Killie the lead.
10 St Mirren have won the Scottish Cup on three occasions, most recently 1-0 against Dundee United in 1987.They claimed the League Cup for the first time in their history when they beat Hearts 3-2 in March 2013 and lifted the Challenge Cup in 2005/06, beating Hamilton Accies 2-1 in the final.
