RYAN EDWARDS received the perfect 22nd birthday gift this week with a new contract at Partick Thistle and he intends to celebrate with a win over Motherwell today.

The Australian Under-23 international midfielder is making up for lost time at the Firhill club.

Edwards has featured in all 17 games this season and said: “Everything has gone as well as I’d hoped. It was all very stop-start for me last year. I was forever coming and going due to my international commitments.
“Thistle were also playing some good stuff at the time, so it was difficult to break into the team. However, I got a run of games towards the end of the last campaign and I’ve carried that on.

“I made sure that I had a good break and came back sharp for pre-season training. I’ve also won the club’s Player of the Month award twice, so it’s been a good start and I’m really happy.”

To round off an ideal week, Edwards will have to help Thistle do something that they haven’t managed in almost 21 years, beat Motherwell at Fir Park.

He added: “That would be nice. We’ve been using a really positive formation recently and, bar the defeat against Aberdeen, that’s seen us rack up consistently good performances and pick up results, too.

“Hopefully, we can go to Motherwell and force them to react to us and what we’re doing as opposed to the other way round.”
