Former Blackburn Rovers striker Lewis Mansell has left Partick Thistle by mutual consent.

The 23-year-old started his career at Blackburn, where he was a regular all the way through to U23s level. Despite over 60 games for the elite development side at Ewood Park, he couldn’t crack the senior setup.

He moved on loan to the Jags in January 2019 before a permanent move was agreed. In total, he made 33 appearances for the Firhill club, scoring on three occasions.

It frees up wages for Ian McCall to potentially use to improve his side, whilst also allowing Mansell to make his next move in football that bit easier.

Partick Thistle took to pre-season action for the first time over the weekend, beating Lowland League BSC Glasgow 3-0. Whilst the scoreline could have been larger, McCall will still be pleased with the workout.

The Jags’ competitive season kicks off on October 7 when they take on St Mirren in League Cup group stage action
