8. Thu-01-Sep-2011 [h] L1-3 Raith Rovers (Scottish Reserve League Cup Semi Final)
MP 17/9/2011. Held over from 2010-11. Scully, O'Donnell, Griffin, McLean, Balatoni, Lindsay, Campbell, Bannigan, BURNS, Erskine, Black. (Keenan, Sekhon, Wilson.) Played at Glasgow Green.
After several close things by Thistle, it was Rovers who went ahead with a deflected shot (30). Burns fired home a cut-back (41). Thistle looked the more likely side after half-time but Rovers scored (70) and saw out the rest of the game comfortably with a third goal late on..
9. Sun-04-Sep-2011 [a] W4-0 Dundee (Scottish Reserve League U-19)
MP 17/9/2011. BLACK (3), McBRIDE. Line-up as yet unsourced.
10. Tue-13-Sep-2011 [a] L2-3 Ayr United (Scottish Reserve League Cup section game)
MP 17/9/2011. Scully, O'Donnell, Griffin, Bannigan, Balatoni, Lindsay, MacBeth, Campbell, BURNS (2 - 1 pen), Flannigan, Burbridge. Played at Troon Juniors FC.
In dreadful weather - heavy rain and strong winds - Burns opened for Thistle from the spot but it was level by half-time. Ayr made it 3-1 against the run of play but Burns scored again to reduce the lead. He almost equalised but his "goal" was disallowed for a foul on the defender.
11. Sun-18-Sep-2011 [h] L1-3 Stirling Albion (Scottish Reserve League U-19)
MP 30/9/2011. Line-up and scorer as yet unsourced. Played at Cumbernauld FC.
12. Tue-20-Sep-2011 [a] L1-2 Cowdenbeath (Scottish Reserve League Cup section game)
MP 30/9/2011. Scully, Brown, Griffin, Sekhon, Lindsay, Campbell, Bannigan, WILSON, Keenan, McGrotty, Black. (Moffat, Burbridge.)
Wilson put Thistle in front but it was 1-1 at half-time. They were probably worth a draw on play but a mix-up at the back led to a goal from a set piece.
13. Wed-21-Sep-2011 [a] L2-3 Glasgow Harp (Friendly)
MP 30/9/2011. McKEE, BURBRIDGE. Line-up as yet unsourced. Milton 3G pitches.
14. Mon-26-Sep-2011 [h] L0-2 Queen's Park (Scottish Reserve League Cup section game)
MP 30/9/2011. Scully, O'Donnell, Griffin, Bannigan, Sekhon, Lindsay, Campbell, Wilson, Black, McGrotty, Keenan. (Trialist, Burbridge, Moffat.) Played at Lesser Hampden.
A disappointing performance. Thistle couldn't get into the game at all. Poor defending let in Queens (5) and Thistle chased the game for the rest of the match, but making few chances. More poor defending and it was 2-0 (25). They were better after half-time but never looked like getting back on level terms.
15. Wed-28-Sep-2011 [a] L0-2 Airdrie United (Scottish Reserve League U-19)
MP 22/10/2011. Line-up as yet unsourced.
16. Tue-04-Oct-2011 [h] L1-3 Hamilton Academical (Scottish Reserve League Cup section game)
MP 22/10/2011. Scully, Brown, Griffin, Bannigan, Lindsay, Sekhon, CAMPBELL, Halsman, McGrotty, Black, Keenan. (Fox, Brown, Moffat.) Played at Glasgow Green.
With Thistle facing the gale in the first half, Hamilton had the best of things. Scully injured a hand trying to stop their opener (39). With Fox in goals after half-time Thistle levelled through Campbell (68) but two goals (85 and 87) won the points. On play, unlucky.
17. Sun-09-Oct-2011 [h] L2-3 Raith Rovers (Scottish Reserve League U-19)
MP 22/10/2011. SEKHON, McBRIDE. Line-up as yet unsourced.
Thistle were good value for their 2-0 half-time lead through goals by Sekhon and McBride but Rovers turned the tables in the 2nd half, scored twice and grabbed a winner with 5 minutes remaining.
18. Sun-16-Oct-2011 [a] W5-1 Berwick Rangers (Scottish Reserve League U-19)
MP 22/10/2011. BLACK (2), McGROTTY, MOFFAT, GRIFFIN. Line-up as yet unsourced.
19. Tue-18-Oct-2011 [h] W2-0 Ayr United (Scottish Reserve League Cup section game)
MP 22/10/2011. Wightman, Brown, Griffin, Bannigan, Lindsay, Sekhon, Campbell, WILSON (2), McGrotty, Moffat, Burbridge. (Halsman, Keenan, Black.) Played at Glasgow Green.
A first victory of the season for the reserves - with 11 teenagers. Wilson fired home a loose ball ((13) and Thistle should have added to their tally before half-time. An even 2nd half saw Black set up Wilson to secure the points (86).
20. Sun-23-Oct-2011 [h] W2-1 Cowdenbeath (Scottish Reserve League U-19)
MP 5/11/2011. BURBRIDGE, BROWN. Line-up as yet unsourced. Played at Petershill FC.
21. Wed-02-Nov-2011 [a] L0-1 Queen's Park (Scottish Reserve League Cup section game)
MP 5/11/2011. Wightman, Campbell, Griffin, Wilson, Lindsay, Sekhon, Halsman, Bannigan, Black, Moffat, Burbridge. (Keenan, McGrotty.)
Eleven teenagers again but despite playing neat football, they lacked a cutting edge. Several chances were made but none was taken. Poor defending let in Queens (61). Griffin went close, Queens hit the post then Thistle spurned several good chances.
22. Mon-07-Nov-2011 [a] W1-0 Hamilton Academical (Scottish Reserve League Cup section game)
MP 3/12/2011. Fox, O'Donnell, Griffin, Lindsay, Robertson, Campbell, BANNIGAN, Halsman, Stewart, Black, MacBeth. (Moffat, McGrotty, Keenan.)
23. Sun-13-Nov-2011 [a] L1-2 Queen's Park (Scottish Reserve League U-19)
MP 3/12/2011. McGROTTY. Line-up as yet unsourced.
24. Tue-15-Nov-2011 [h] L1-2 Queen of the South (Scottish Reserve League Cup section game)
MP 3/12/2011. Wightman, Campbell, Griffin, Bannigan, Lindsay, Robertson, Moffat, Halsman, Dargo, BLACK, MacBeth. (Sekhon, McGrotty, Burbridge.) Played at Glasgow Green.
New signing Dargo took just 7 minutes to hit the post then Queens did too. Dargo set up Black from 6 yards for 1-0 (29). Thistle had most of the play but Queens levelled (59) on the break. A header from a free-kick won the points (87).
25. Wed-23-Nov-2011 [h] L0-6 Greenock Morton (Scottish Reserve League U-19)
MP 3/12/2011. Line-up as yet unsourced.

MP 21/1/2012. Scully, Griffin, Lindsay, Bannigan, Robertson, Kinniburgh, Erskine, MacBeth, STEWART, ELLIOTT (2), FRASER. (Sekhon, Moffat, Keenan.) Played at Glasgow Green.
Thistle were on the back foot early on and Scully was busy. Elliott shot across the keeper for 1-0 (16) and headed in a corner (29). A lucky break of the ball at a corner set up Fraser for 3-0 (35). Thistle had most of the play after half-time but Stewart's goal (61) was all they managed.

2011-12 Reserves summary notes

P41 W19 D3 L19 (1.463 ppg)

Historical PT Reserves average: 1.462 ppg (@ 22-Aug-2023)
  • The points-per-game measurements (ppg) above are calculated on the same principle as the first-team's all games category, and are based on 1 point for a draw and 3 points for a win across all eras.
  • All games where the outcome is unknown (U) are excluded from the game count / stats summary.
  • Final League Position: unknown, no final table found. Probably just above mid-table, 36/69 pts.
  • Going by the printed tables in occasional PT progs, looks like there were 25 teams in the league, playing 24 fixtures, home or away. Only 23 of our matches have been found. We were due to play Arbroath w/c 22 Jan, however, there's no subsequent trace of that game. By the list of fixtures in the 18/2 prog, Arbroath have disappeared, so perhaps they withdrew from the league.
  • Final Scottish Reserve League Cup Position: 4th of 6, 12/30 pts.
