Partick Thistle chief executive Gerry Britton has vowed to do everything in his power to steer the club through the uncertainty of the next few months.

The Covid-19 pandemic has seen the postponement of football in Scotland, as well as most parts of the world.

The global situation has forced countries into lockdown, with social distancing being practiced far and wide to help slow the spread of the disease.

It is a hugely anxious time for a lot of people and businesses, with football clubs – especially smaller ones – no exception.

Many are very reliant on matchday income, but with football suspended for the foreseeable, the future for some is unclear.

Partick CEO Britton said: “There’s no way you could have catered for this. But the important thing for us, and I’m sure it’s the same for every club, is that we come out of this.

Everybody is dealing with closures and unemployment and just trying to get the basic services we have become used to, so it does give you a reality check.

“It refocuses what’s important for so many people in our community and in our fanbase. I’m privileged to have been involved for such a long time.

“I’ll do everything within my power to make sure that we do come through this at the other side in as good a position as possible.”

It’s been a rollercoaster season for bottom of the Championship Partick, who have had three boards, three managers and a near-takeover, but one thing that has been constant and unwavering is the support from fans.

Britton added: “There will continue to be challenges over the months to come but we feel confident when we know that we’ve got the type of fanbase that we have.

“They might not be as large in number as the other two big clubs in the city but they will back us to the hilt and we will do everything we can to repay that support.”
