The pride of the historic town of Paisley, St Mirren are one of the most famous clubs in Scotland and football tickets for their matches at their St Mirren Park stadium are always in demand. And at Ticket4Football.com – the specialised website – you can secure your own football tickets for games played by the club, which derives its name from St Mirin, the patron saint of Paisley.
St Mirren were founded in 1877 and achieved their first major honour in 1926 when they defeated Celtic in the final of the Scottish Cup. The Buddies won the second of their three Scottish Cups in 1959 with a 3-1 over Aberdeen at Hampden Park in front of 108,591 – the last time more than 100,000 fans watched any match in Scotland that did not involve either Celtic or Rangers.
And in 1987 Saints lifted the Scottish Cup again when an Ian Ferguson goal gave them a 1-0 extra-time win over Dundee United.
The club was transformed in the late 1970s under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson before he moved on to Aberdeen and Manchester United.
Famous ex-players include Tommy Bryceland, Archie Gemmill, Frank McGarvey, Tony Fitzpatrick and Billy Stark.
The current squad, managed by Danny Lennon, includes players from Ireland (David van Zanten), England (Michael Higdon), Slovenia (Jure Travner) and Australia (Aaron Mooy). In 1962 a crowd of 127,940 saw St Mirren lose to Rangers in the Scottish Cup Final, while their record home attendance of 47,438 was set in 1949 in a League Cup tie against Celtic at their old Love Street stadium.
However, in January 2009 the club moved to New St Mirren Park in Paisley, which has a total seating capacity of 8,023. To date the record attendance at the new stadium is 7,542, for the visit of Kilmarnock on January 31, 2009.
