Modifiers Thistle Football ClubEdit



Modifiers Thistle Football Club, originated in 2004 but failed to make it into the Scottish League until Season 7. Two promotions in succession sparked a growing fan base. However, on-pitch performances have been below par. The current Manager is Craig Black, who is young and hoping to make a name for himself. Modifiers Thistle currently play at the CB Stadium in the West of Edinburgh which has a seating capacity of 17'000.

The Edinburgh-based club have endured many highs and lows over the 4 seasons in the Scottish League. The lowest being Season 10 when they failed to record a win until match number 14. One of the highest being the run of results after that first win ensured their Division 4 safety.

Modifiers Thistle have been struggling financially ever since their welcoming to the Scottish League. The tearing down of minor facilities and part of the CB Stadium have reduced the Maintenance total enough for the team to cope. This lack of funds has also been part of the reason why Modifiers have never really bought anyone with the good quality need to succeed in this competition. Manager Craig Black seems optimistic about this, claiming the team will benefit in the long-run. Many fans want changes to benefit the team now, but see no way of doing so.

Modifiers Thistle are sponsered by GAME and their kits are supplied by Lion.
