    On the field, Thistle rounded off a satisfactory pre-season with a comfortable win over one of their Ross-shire Welfare league opponents in Cromarty. Goals from Colin Burry, Michael Brand, John Maclellan, Mark Reid and Darran Goller put the Victoria Park men to the sword with a 5-1 win. The result followed a 3-2 defeat against the Smithton Hotel for the Jags as a depleted Thistle XI travelled to Inverness for their friendly meeting this past Saturday.<br /><br />With the friendlies concluded, training for Thistle will now begin on Monday night at 7pm at the Links park.<br /><br />The fixtures for the Ross-shire Welfare league were fully announced this week, with Tain Thistle facing almost an entire season of away games on Saturdays following the random luck of the draw. Thistle's only home 1st round tie, against Inver in the Coronation Cup, will be played on a Monday night to avoid a clash with Tain Gala. At most, Thistle will play a small total of nine home games this season.<br /><br />The next poker fundraiser is scheduled for Tuesday, April 26th this coming week, with a 7.30pm start. Interested parties should contact the club or Bryan Campbell at the St Duthus Hotel.<br /><br />Darran Goller began his road to recovery from a hamstring complaint on Wednesday, playing 20 minutes against Cromarty. The striker scored within moments of being on the park and set up another goal shortly after, showing no effects of injury.<br /><br />Finally, Thistle defender Andy Murray has experienced yet another birthday this week, turning THIRTY-SIX today. Happy birthday Andy.<br /><br /><img border="0" align="none" alt="" src="http://www.tainthistle.co.uk/news/data/upimages/avatar-training.jpg">
