Bio Extra

Like many of the club’s members in the 19th century, Charlie’s ambitions to play football were perhaps not in line with abilities, and therefore other duties were performed for the love of Partick Thistle. Throughout the 1880s Charles served as Match Secretary, Treasurer and was the club’s representative at meetings of the Glasgow FA. As well as appearances in the second eleven, he made it onto the field as a first team player on two occasions in 1887, lining up both times as inside right to legendary club centre forward, Willie Paul. He played vs. Glasgow Thistle [a] W3-2 in April and vs. Renfrew [h] L1-2 in December. Won 1, Lost 1. For 4, Against 4. Perfectly balanced – just like his books!
