PARTICK THISTLE chairman Jacqui Low's resignation - and subsequent reappointment - as director of Three Black Cats (TBC) was due to a technical error, the company's lawyers have said.

TBC, the company set up by the late Colin Weir, currently own a controlling stake in the Firhill club with a view to transferring the shares over to supporters as Thistle move to a fan ownership model.

Low serves as a director of TBC, as well as sitting as chair at Thistle. Documents from Companies House show that Low's appointment as director at TBC was terminated on 27 April 2020 before being reinstated two days later.

Partick Thistle Working Group, the organisation tasked with overseeing the transition to fan ownership, released a statement announcing their confusion over the situation.

"We are as surprised as any Thistle fan at the news of Jacqui Low's resignation as a director of Three Black Cats," it read.

"We don't currently know where this leaves us or how it will impact upon the move to a fan owned Thistle.

"We are presently attempting to clarify the situation and will provide a further update as and when we are in receipt of any information."

Since the Working Group's statement was released, a spokesman for TBC's lawyers have clarified that a technical error was to blame for the resignation and subsequent return of Low to TBC.

The spokesman for Murray Beith Murray solicitors said: "In addressing a technical issue unrelated to the company’s holding in PTFC, Ms Low is shown on Companies House as having resigned and having then been reappointed as a Director of Three Black Cats.

"There was a time lag in recording her continuing appointment with Companies House but that has now been done. We regret any issues or difficulties this may have caused Ms Low."
