Club statement on the 3rd Round Scottish Cup Tie against Partick Thistle on 23.11.19

On behalf of Penicuik Athletic Players, Management and Committee I would like to thank each and every one of our fans who attended our match against Partick Thistle on Saturday. For us to take over 1300 fans to the game, which was the biggest away support in Scotland on Saturday, was tremendous. We would also like to thank Partick Thistle for their excellent help and hospitality given to us from our first contact with them regarding the game until we left on Saturday. It was first class and in no way were we treated other than their equal. Although the result did not go our way our fans created such a great atmosphere at the match you would have thought we had won. The scenes at the end when the players and management went over to thank the fans for their support will long live in the memory of many. The committee would like to thank the management and players for the effort they put in to Saturdays game. To lose a goal so early and play the way they did was a credit to themselves and made everyone connected with the club proud. Thanks also must go to all who organised the buses in order for us to take so many fans. Thanks also to those who arrived at the game by bus, train or car. Finally I would appeal to all you fans who attended the game and the fans who could not be there for whatever reason to come along  and support Penicuik on match days. If we could create a tenth of the atmosphere from Saturday it would be make Penicuik Park a very difficult venue for any visiting team. Once Again Many Thanks Neil Gordon Secretary
