Quartet sign on again at Firhill

Parttick Thistle player Jackie McNamara
Defender Jackie McNamara returns to Firhill after a loan spell last season

Ex-players Jackie McNamara, Simon Donnelly, Ian Maxwell and Craig Hinchcliffe have signed one-year deals with Partick Thistle.

Donnelly, Maxwell and Hinchcliffe were released by Thistle at the end of the season, while McNamara spent part of last season on loan at Firhill.

Maxwell returns as assistant manager and Hinchcliffe as player/coach.

Jags manager Ian McCall also revealed that they were hopeful of signing goalkeeper Bryn Halliwell.

"While Ian Maxwell and Craig Hinchcliffe might not play too big a part in the first team in the coming season that will not be the case with either Simon Donnelly and Jackie McNamara, both of whom I see being first team regulars," McCall told the club's website.

"I'm delighted that we have these four individuals back on board at Firhill. They will all play an integral role in helping take Partick Thistle forward."
