Archibald named Thistle boss
Partick Thistle have appointed Alan Archibald as their new
manager on a permanent basis.
Archibald, 35, has been in caretaker charge of the Jags since
Jackie McNamara departed to take over as boss of Dundee United at
the end of January.
Thistle drew 2-2 at Morton in Archibald’s first match in charge
and they have since notched five successive wins to close within
two points of Morton at the top of Division One.
Long-serving defender Archibald, who has not played for Partick
since taking charge, will continue to be assisted by Scott
Partick chairman David Beattie said: “I’m absolutely delighted
to be able to confirm the appointment of Alan Archibald as Partick
Thistle manager and Scott Paterson as his assistant.
“I look forward to working closely with them as we continue to
work hard at providing a club that we can all take pride in.”
