Circumventing A Touchline Ban

Post by arover on Wed May 18, 2011 6:01 am

Anyone remember Chick Charnley? They don't make them like him any more.

One of the more peculiar sendings-off happened at a Partick Thistle home game in the mid-1990s (against Kilmarnock, I believe) when the referee sent off a construction worker, who was watching the game from the building site that was to become the Jackie Husband stand. It transpired that the hard-hat-clad man wasn't a genuine workman, rather he was the Thistle assistant manager, Gerry Collins, who was attempting to circumvent a touchline ban. Sadly, his voluble criticism of the referee and luxuriant moustache gave the game away. This is the kind of incident that could only happen at Thistle – it was at around the same time that midfielder and headbanger Chic Charnley was "approached" by a gent wielding a samurai sword during training.
