The Thistle Weir Youth Academy at Partick Thistle FC today announced solicitors Jones Whyte as its main "front of shirt" sponsor.

With youth football across Scotland currently suspended, the one-year deal will take effect from when it is safe for the Academy to return to the pitch. The sponsorship will see the Jones Whyte logo appear on the front of all Academy match strips from the under 11s squad through to the under 16s.

Greg Whyte, managing partner of Jones Whyte, commented: "Firhill Stadium, home of the Thistle Weir Youth Academy, is the closest stadium to our base in Bath Street so we are delighted to partner with our neighbours. We hope in years to come we see some of the Academy graduates playing for the first team where their journey began in a shirt with Jones Whyte on the front."

Thistle Weir Youth Academy Director Scott Allison added: "We’re pleased to welcome Jones Whyte on board as a partner. The support they have shown, at such a turbulent time throughout the world, is fantastic and we look forward to wearing their logo on our strips when football returns."
