The 3rd Lanark Supporters Club

The Third Lanark Supporters Association ran officially from 1946 until 1971, even outlasting the football club by 4 years! Now that's devotion for you. Many of you will have fond memories
of the old Association, events and memorabilia produced.

Well, we have good's back !!! In an effort to keep
all of our fans old and new abreast of all the current and
exciting developments at the reborn Club a Committee has been formed to deal with the avalanche of interest recently in all things Third Lanark. On the 15th of September 2011 the 3rd Lanark Supporters Club Limited was incorporated at Companies House in Edinburgh. This is an independent fans club who will have a representative on the Executive Committee of the Third Lanark Athletic Club at all times. This will ensure that the rebirth of 3rds will always include the voice of the fans in all dealings and in perpetuity and will be written into the Club Constitution at the next Executive Meeting later in the month. This is the perfect opportunity to join the story of the rise of one of Scotland's most famous football & athletic clubs. The membership fee is set at £10.00 per season and this entitles each member to a Membership Certificate, Members Badge, Quarterly Club Newsletter and discounted offers on Official Club merchandise. All cheques to be made payable to: 3rd Lanark Supporters Club Limited. For further details please email the Supporters Club directly on :

Ups & Downs...

Three weeks into the new season now and the Club is in good shape, with the First XI holding their own,the Second XI improving weekly, the Under 16s now finding their feet. The 5 -a-side league has also begun and we have a new Third Lanark side competing Thursday nights at Goals in Shawlands, under Gary Smith.

Training has been really encouraging toowith new players joining every week, fitness trainers coming along and most importantly decent players all just really wanting to train!Last night at the Queens Park Recreation Ground was just such an occasion. Muddy,wet,windy and horrible, but the lads got stuck in to a feisty 7-a-side game. Afterwards however we were dealt a real blow as all of our training kit,match balls, cones,bibs,goal markers,boots,net pegs,First Aid kit as well as subscriptions & lottery cash were stolen from my car parked near Victoria Road. We had ammassed a decent amount of kit,our skipper Donald Reston and the First XI having donated a lot of this to our fledgling 2nd XI, so it has absolutely sickened all of the Players,Coaches and Committee Members that this has happened, especially considering the price of Match Balls !Whatever happens,we go on but this has been a cruel blow. It really does hammer home the need for us to return to our old ground of Cathkin Park...
