Thistle have made their first major signing of the new season with the exciting capture of talented forward Owen McGinty.

The former Rangers and Ayr United Colt signed up at Barrfields on Monday evening and is a big addition to Stuart Davidson's side heading into the new season.
McGinty has performed with some of the best young players in Scotland including Premiership star Billy Gilmour who was a former team mate at Rangers.
And now, he hopes to make a big impact this season at his hometown club under the watchful eye of Davidson and his coaching staff.
The 19 year old winger and forward said: "It is brilliant to be here - I am very proud to sign for my hometown club.
"I am looking forward to getting back playing and featuring week in week out."
Davidson said: "Owen has a good pedigree as a youth playing for Rangers and Ayr and has bags of talent and it is great to have him.
"He is going to work hard - it is good that he is a local boy and he supports Largs - that is what you want to see here.
"Hopefully there is more to come with our under 20s and other young players through our community club.
"It will hopefully bring the crowd in and hopefully he will do well."
McGinty was signed through a new fans initiative called the Thistle 94 club which will see supporters donate a recommended £10 a month throughout the season, and more can be donated if possible, to help boost the club funds - with various benefits.
The teen has worked with John Crawford, Thistle's legendary Scottish Cup winning manager of 1994, when at Ayr United and paid McGinty credit and believes if he puts his mind to it he can go far in the game.
Crawford said: "He is a very talented player with great feet, turn and change of pace and an ability to go past defenders for fun. 
"He can score goals and also contribute with assists, he has it all really.
"It is always great to see a good local talent demonstrate such natural ability.
"You always feel when Owen receives the ball he is going to make something happen."
* Thistle bring their pre-season to an end with a double header at home.
Largs overcame Irvine Victoria 4-0 with a free kick goal by McGinty and next face Premiership rivals Bonnyton Thistle on Saturday at 2pm.
Manager Davidson said: "In recent friendly games, the boys worked very hard at Glenafton and I was pleased with the performance. Will Sewell scored a double and earned those goals by working hard throughout. Stuart Faulds also scored a great team goal, and it was good to see Keir Milliken on the scoresheet.
"Then we beat Port Glasgow 3-1 - it was quite a feisty encounter which is what we want at this stage. Cory Hughes scored a couple - he has the desire and appetite for goals when he is in the box, and has been a great defender. I don't how bad the cut was but he was going to hospital just for a check-up.
"It was a good ball into the box from Craig Forbes before Faulds scored the opener against Arthurlie.
" We didn't cover the free kick well enough for their equaliser. 
"I thought the ball did cross the line in the last minute - and the players claimed for it - but other than that we only created half chances so we need to step it up for our final friendlies."
Largs kick off the league season v Rutherglen on July 17 at Barrfields.
