Thistle's new signing Alan Frizzell launched his second spell at the Barrfields club in style by scoring nine minutes into his debut.


The 27 year old was delighted to play his part in Largs winning silverware as they triumphed in the John Grant Tournament to make it a winning start to the season.
Supporters were impressed with Frizzell's debut against Maryhill and hailed it as a man of the match performance.
The cultured forward is returning to Largs after featuring for a number of clubs including Clydebank, Greenock and Troon, after an initial 62 games in his last spell between 2014-16.
Frizzel burst onto the scene with great pace and scored some memorable goals first time round at Barrfields, and told the News he is thrilled to return.
Frizzel said: "It's great to be back!
I first signed for Largs when I was 18 under Sandy MacLean - it was a great dressing room to be involved with the likes of James Marks, Barry McLaughlin, and Barri Stanton.
"Willie McClure and Kevin Struthers were the best double act. It was a terrific dressing room to be a part of and what a laugh we had."
The Thistle forward played his part in the club's promotion winning season under Bryan Slavin and current boss Stuart Davidson in 2015-16.
He said: "We started that season flying and won nine games in a row at the start.
"I remember we beat Clydebank 2-0 at Barrfields near the end of the season which was a pivotal result as Clydebank had also made a very good start to the season."
And Frizzell's performances caught the eye of Bankies manager Budgie McGhie who signed him up the following season.
The forward said: "I really enjoyed my time at Clydebank and we also got promoted - I was close to former Largs player Nicky Little, and either played as a striker or left of the front three."
Alan joined his hometown club in Greenock Juniors under Tom Molloy and Shaun Dillion.
He said "I was working offshore for the best part of three years and Tom and Shaun then took me to Kilbirnie Ladeside for the last four to five months of last season.
"We had a really good run and beat some top teams. We were right up at the top of the form league table but the early start to the season killed us. If the season had started at Christmas it would have been a different story.
"And now I am back at Largs Thistle and it is full circle for me - and I couldn't be happier.

"I am really looking forward to playing with Coogs (Liam Coogan) and Scott Reid upfront and I am glad that Arnie (manager Stuart Davidson) has given me the opportunity. I really wanted to stay in the Premier League."
Scott works at Faslane as an electrical engineer so getting back from matches and trains at a reasonable time was another big pulling factor: "It is great to be home for 9.30pm after a training session - fed and watered!
"The hope is to push on from last year with Largs - the club ended up finishing in a good position last year in tenth.
"I am fit and like to run behind the defenders and get on the scoresheet - my mantra is to run fast, and score goals!"
And now that the league fixtures have been announced, Frizzell says he is greatly looking forward to the opening game of the season as Largs host Glenafton on July 30.
He said: "I have played with Glens manager Ryan Stevenston and he has been right to the top of the game and has all the contacts - he will have assembled a top team so it should be a great challenge for our opening encounter of the season."
Frizzell himself has also played for the first team at Greenock Morton.
He said: "I was at Morton my whole life until I went to Largs Thistle first time round and made the first team under manager Alan Moore.
"I also worked under David Hopkin who was at that point the reserve team manager.
"I had to make a decision when I was at Morton as a lot of players do and took my apprenticeship but I have a lot of good memories from Cappielow over the years."
And Frizzell is now returning to another old stomping ground in Barrfields Park where he hopes to bring his wealth of experience he has amassed over the years to positive effect.
He said: "It was great to open the season with a tournament win - and it is always a nice feeling to win a cup.
"All the boys wanted to get their hands on silverware and I hope that positive vibe continues into the season.
"Arnie knows that I will work my socks off and show plenty of graft, and I hope that I can stay fit, and with all the boys we can push on from last season and have a successful season."
