There was exciting news for fans of Scottish and European soccer giants, Partick Thistle last night after ’70’s glam rock icons, The Sweet, announced that they are reforming for one night only to play a benefit gig to raise money for a proposed new set of pegs for the home dressing room.
The “Little Willy” band’s frontman, Brian Connolly, 107, told Dafty News: “We receive endless requests to get back together but we’ve always resisted the temptation to go down that route.
“However, when the newly-appointed team boss of The Jags, Danny “Gaffer” Soz, approached us, we knew we had to get our spandex costumes out once more and give it one last shot.
“At the end of the day, what better legacy than to say we were instrumental in paying for a completely new set of pegs for the lads to hang their togs on prior to battling for European and Scotch glory on the field of play”
The concert will be staged next Wednesday lunchtime in Maryhill Park with tickets starting at £1.50, going up to £3.00 for a place on the grass right at the front.
