Thistle boss Stuart Davidson has thanked all the fans for their support this year - and says that the recent 5-1 win over Bonnyton was the perfect Christmas gift.


Davidson gave a heartfelt thank you to the Largs fan base who have been by his side through thick and thin this season and backed the team after a testing start to the season.
He said: "The fans as you can see against Bonnyton in our last game are fantastic - and they have been like that all throughout the season.
"For the amount of fans we have got they are loyal and even when the bad games are happening I still get messages of support.
"It is very much appreciated - and that 5-1 win was a terrific way to bow out for 2021 and we now eagerly look forward to see what 2022 brings."
Largs have ended 2021 in excellent form with wins over the likes of Dundee North End, Glenafton, and Yoker as they look to hit top gear after the holidays.
And the good news too is that Thistle have reported a clean bill of health after a range of injury problems had bedevilled the squad in the first half of the season following the hectic midweek schedule to open the season.
And the Largs boss has put out a special thank you to the fans for their backing in the campaign.
Davidson said: "The fans as you can see against Bonnyton in our last game have been fantastic - and they have been like that all throughout the season.
"For the amount of fans we have got they are loyal and even when the bad games are happening I still get messages of support.
"It is very much appreciated - and that 5-1 win over Bonnyton was a terrific way to bow out for 2021 and we now eagerly look forward to see what 2022 brings."
Largs next come up against Cumbernauld at Barrfields Park in the PDM Buildbase Premier Division on January 8 as they look to move up from 16th position in the 20 team league.
Reflecting on the Bonnyton victory, Davidson said: "I would have taken 1-0 as going into the break it was all about getting the points again.
"It was great to score five goals and I was very pleased with the way we conducted ourselves and the effort from the boys.
"Five goals in any game is really good and although we were against ten men you sometimes struggle against ten so we did really well.
"We knew Bonnyton would be well organised and make it difficult in the first half - it was all about us trying to get ahead first in the game but that didn't happen.
"Our reaction to their opener was great - and in the last 15 minutes of the first half we could have been ahead, and then in the second half we stepped it up a gear.
"It was a well worked opening goal for Blair MacIntyre and it was another great finish from Blair MacIntyre and he obviously got the free kick against Yoker and it is good to see him add goals to his game.
"Sean McLeod got the second goal - he will go down the right wing and put balls into the back post or in the box for other people but what is good about Sean is that he has the desire to get on the end of moves like he did against Bonnyton. It was a great run and finish.
"It was good to see Stuart Faulds on the scoresheet as well - he should be getting more goals as well but it was good to see another midfielder score. And I thought Sid McBryde, although he didn't score, was also excellent.
"Will Sewell will always get chances and he will keep going and keep going and his finish with the volley was brilliant. Again, his overall game is really good and he is keeping guys like Scott Adam and Keir Milliken out of the team so he must be doing something right.
"And Laurie finished off the fifth goal well - after he was set up against by Sid.
"After the first half hour I thought the three midfielders were great and were setting up some great moves."
The injury scene has also cleared up with the one long term injury in defender Cory Hughes having returned to training.
Davidson said: "Going into the festive period and having everyone fit is good going into the new year and we have training throughout plus we will be giving the boys some extra stuff to do.
"Getting the four wins in a row is good for momentum as we go into the break - and we can now look forward to our next game against Cumbernauld in the new year."
