Largs Thistle skipper Scott Adam has praised the fans for their loyalty as the club managed a record-equalling fifth spot in the West of Scotland Premier League table.

'Addy' has been one of the longest serving players at the club, having joined in 2017. He put in a valuable shift this season, as the club enjoyed an impressive second half of the season.

Adam also admitted to 'mixed emotions' in relation to the season after a tough period before Christmas saw Largs bow out of all three trophies available to them.

With last Saturday's win over Rob Roy, Largs chalked up an eighth victory in their last nine matches, with more of the fast and creative play which has been their hallmark throughout 2024.

Speaking in the match programme skipper Adam said: "I have a lot of mixed emotions about a season that has had some poor results and some great ones. The biggest disappointment was our performance in the cups. In the Scottish Junior, we lost to Lochee United in a game we were in complete control of in the first half.

"The loss to Ashfield in the South Region Cup was a bitter blow, as we had already knocked them out of the Junior Cup a few weeks earlier.

"Then we lost to Glenafton in the West of Scotland Cup.

"All three of these ties were winnable and if we'd managed to get a victory in even one of them, we would have had something to play for in the second half of the season rather than just league points.

"At the time we had a few injuries to key players and maybe that affected the team."

Largs and Millport Weekly News:

However, Largs soon put the cup disappointment behind them to record some amazing victories in the second half of the season, with Adam scoring the winning goal as Largs defeated Clydebank 3-2 for their first away win there in five years.

He said: "We've shown in the second half of the season that a full squad is so important for a club like ours.

"We've been one of the form teams since Christmas with wins at places like Clydebank and Darvel. It's shown that we are a good side that can compete with some of the best teams in the division. 

"On behalf of myself and the lads, I'd like to say a huge thank you to all our fans for the brilliant support we have received all season.

"We might not have the biggest support, but we've certainly got the most loyal. Even when things aren't going as we hope, you're right behind us and we really appreciate it."
