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.
