Partick Thistle Force Players to Make Their Own Way to Away Games After Scrapping Team Bus

Partick Thistle Force Players to Make Their Own Way to Away Games After Scrapping Team Bus

Partick Thistle players have been left stunned after the club’s hierarchy scrapped the team bus for away matches.

According to the Scottish Sun, Thistle players were forced to make their own way to Saturday’s Championship opener away at Alloa, which saw the Glasgow club grind out a 1-1 draw.

And it seems there will be no team bus for the upcoming away trip to Greenock Morton on August 23, with Thistle players and coaching staff forced to car-share their way to Cappielow.

It remains to be seen what plans will be put in place with a 200-mile round trip to Arbroath looming on September 13, and with a visit to Inverness Caledonian Thistle scheduled for September 28.

Gary Caldwell’s side avoided relegation from the second-tier on the final day of last season, and were expected to launch a bid for promotion back to the Premiership this season.

But will such severe budget cuts affect Caldwell and his playing staff on the pitch?

What do you think of the situation, and Thistle’s odds of being in with a serious shout of making the promotion shake-up come the spring?

Let us know in the comments section below…
