Partick Thistle: Lottery winner Colin Weir withdraws funds amid ownership concerns

Recommended Posts


Lottery winner Colin Weir, who set aside £6m for Partick Thistle's new training ground, has withdrawn his financial support for the club.

Weir cites "uncertainties about its potential new ownership".

The Scottish Championship club had earlier issued a statement admitting that two team buses had been cancelled amid cost-cutting while talks continue.

"I can't provide the benefits of significant monies and a facility to an unknown entity or group," he said.

"Current uncertainties about its potential new ownership, combined with no substantive plan for the club's future and the instability caused by recent board changes, mean I feel unable to make any further investment in the club at this time.

"I have heard nothing from the board/majority shareholders group that gives me the confidence to continue with my support."
