It may have been a stop start season for Thistle but skipper Scott Adam  was on sensational form before the season stopped in December.

Notching a spectacular hat-trick against Blantyre, and playing his part in some big wins for the Barrfields club in the top flight, the birthday boy told the News he is itching to get back.
He said: "It has been a stop start season and we can't wait to get back to playing.
"The first few weekends after lockdown I have been at home and it was fine but now you are just desperate to get back to playing football. All the boys miss it.
"I think it became inevitable that football would stop when it did as all the guys at our level are working and mixing with people and although we are all sticking to the protocols it was inevitable that play would have to stop. 
"With football cancelled this season, the hope is that when things do return next season we can get back to having the fans in stadiums and we can use the changing rooms.
"Once we get it back together hopefully we can do it properly as it is quite tough having the manager do the team talks outside on the park, and I, as captain, like to talk to all the players too.
"Fortunately we didn't have the additional burden off all the travelling to away games as seven of our eight league games were at Barrfields, as it would have been really hard going to somewhere like Blantyre or Cumbernauld without being able to use their facilities."

Largs and Millport Weekly News:
Reflecting on the season to date, Adam said: "After a few moths of training, we got started in October.
"We had had a few friendlies against Johnstone Burgh, Beith and Irvine Meadow so we were in good shape but we had an absence of around two weeks which meant we were not up to speed by the time the season came round.
"We were narrowly defeated by Clydebank - I didn't think there was that much in it. We were on the wrong end of a couple of results as Irvine Meadow then won at Barrfields - we missed a couple of chances so at that point it wasn't looking too good as we were at the lower end of the table.
"The Cumbernauld 4-1 victory changed everything and was a cracking display. It was the start of the turnaround.
"The 2-1 win at Kilwinning was probably one of the main highlights of the season, and we stood up well to the challenge from the off.
"We showed our battling qualities and then they had a man sent off. Jack Haggerty scored a stunning winning goal and his confidence was high to hit a ball like that - it was a screamer.
" I had a personal highlight with the hat-trick against Blantyre which was important as it was a tough game and Blantyre kept fighting back. Everything came off for me and I was able to finish it off with a sweet volley.
"We have a lot of young players in our side but you can see that they have really came on this season.
"The one and only cup game we played in the Soccer Shop South of Scotland Cup was a 2-1 win over Dalbeattie Star. We were 2-0 up and they scored near the end but to be honest we may be should have won that game a bit more comfortably.
"Playing this season has been important as it has given the boys more valuable experience and it will be full steam ahead when football does resume. The new cup is good as it gives us the opportunity to play new teams who we might never played before."
And Adam was delighted to team up with his long time friend Keir Milliken upfront after the former Auchinleck and Beith forward signed up this season at Barrfields.
Adam said: "It is great signing up Milky. He is a big nuisance and good in the air and his holding up play is strong and he works very hard.
"It was a big bonus getting Milky in - he got a wee injury just before we stopped playing but hopefully should be back ready for action when we can play again."

Largs and Millport Weekly News:
The last league game played came in an exciting 2-2 tussle against old rivals Beith at Barrfields. Adam said: "We went 1-0 up and we were threatening - I missed a not bad chance and they scored an equaliser out of nowhere which was a bit of wonder strike, and then they took the lead early in the 2nd half. I set up Ben Black who grabbed the equaliser with a stylish finish."
Adam praised the Largs management team led by Stuart Davidson for getting the best out of the players.
The West Kilbride man said: "Arnie has put in a good coaching team around him and gets the optimum performance from the players.
"He is honest with them and you don't get that in a lot of managers - he tells you where you are going wrong and makes you work hard and also pays attention a lot to other teams and their weaknesses and works that into how we can effectively hurt the other team.
"It is tough just now when we are all out training on our own but the good thing is that we are all desperate to get back and hopefully with vaccines and lockdown easing we can all get back to playing the game soon."
