Bio

As one of the most recognizable faces of Tain Thistle, Robbie Ross (aka Razzle) has performed almost every role at the club, from striker to goalkeeper, to committee member to kit-man, to captain to manager.

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 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.

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.

Since his return, he has become something of a utility man, playing almost all of the 2008 season as the team's goalkeeper, before again finishing as the club's top scorer at the end of their 2009 league winning season. Most recently, Robbie's experience has seen him switching between forward roles and Thistle's defence, often playing as a sweeper.
