A Glasgow football club has become the first senior team in Scotland to receive lifesaving UEFA training.

Partick Thistle staff, players and volunteers were trained as part of the UEFA/ERC/SAFA 'Get Trained - Save Lives' campaign and they also installed two defibrillators.

The machines, one of which was donated by St Andrew's First Aid, were placed at Firhill Stadium.

Jim Dorman, director of Operations and Community Engagement at St Andrew's First Aid, said: “Partick Thistle came to us to purchase an AED to keep on their ground.

"We offered to donate a further defib and both are now kept in external cabinets at two of the stands at the ground.

"We would like to commend Partick Thistle FC for their commitment to keeping players, staff, and supporters safe and to leading the way in becoming a full team of lifesavers.”

Chris Ross, Partick Thistle FC CEO, added: “The defib donated by St Andrew’s First Aid will bring additional peace of mind to staff, supporters, and the public, knowing we have this equipment on hand.

"We are extremely grateful to the charity for donating this lifesaving equipment to the club.”
