Did You Know 15 Courtesy of our football collegues in the south A few months ago a gentleman decided  to compile a grid of seasons + competitions at Senior non-league level (for HFL and predecessors, SOSFL and EOSFL). It was with the intention of seeing if anyone had won a "clean sweep" i.e. every trophy they could enter in a season [except the Scottish Cup proper, obviously]. They  found only 1 candidate, You guessed it Buckie Thistle 1953-54. Their achievement apparently being: * Highland League * North Qualifying Cup * Aberdeenshire Cup * Highland League Cup * Dewar Shield so it appears we are the only member of a very exclusive club and long may it continue

 

Did You know 16 :The poem the Rooks from the 1930s about the jags, very little information is know apart from this, poem courtesy of Scottish football archives, complied after a defeat to Huntly

 

There is a famous football team

It‟s name‟s known far and wide

They wear the famous green and white

Renowned from Wick to Clyde

--------------------------------------------

Their records made in seasons past

Will stand till times no more

The heroes‟ names will ever last

Their deeds thrill to the core.

-------------------------------------------

Let other teams their teams support

One thought consoles us all

These foes admit that Thistle are

Supreme in North football.

----------------------------------------------

Though some are fresh from Junior ranks

They‟re artists one and all

Possessing each the Thistle touch

They never waste a ball.

--------------------------------------

The master touch marks ever move

From back to forward line

Their parlour passing goes to prove

They‟re real Thistle all the time.

                 The end
