  • Ross returns to take the Jags' reigns

    Tain Thistle are pleased to announce the appointment of Robert Ross as Team Manager for the next two seasons. A former Jags player with 80 goals to his name for the Club since 1997, Robbie is an experienced player who knows the club well. He will be assisted by Allan Ross and former manager Arron Christie.<br /><br />Robbie made his debut for the club under Gordon Burry in 1998, after having responded to an advert in the local Post Office from a new team who were looking for football players. Although only 16 years old, Robbie netted his first goal on May 6th that year, against the Morven as Thistle fell to an 8-1 defeat.<br /><br />Playing at a time when Thistle were frequent underachievers, Robbie stood out as one of the brighter talents at the club, scoring 5 times in 1999 and finishing as the club's top scorer in 2000 with 18 goals. After five years with the club, however, he left in 2003 to represent neighbouring Portmahomack, alongside a handful of other Thistle regulars. Robbie finally returned in 2007 after the departure of manager Billy Russell, to assist new boss Arron Christie. That year, the pairing led Thistle to their first ever trophy, with Robbie scoring in the Pattison Cup final to take the trophy home. His crowning achievement came in 2009 when he finished as the club's top goalscorer during their league winning season.<br /><br /><img border="0" align="none" alt="" src="http://www.tainthistle.co.uk/news/data/upimages/323982_10151107721051873_1939832472_o.jpg" width=520>
