St Mirren fans celebrate club’s League Cup win on streets of Paisley

St Mirren fans filled the streets of Paisley to celebrate their club’s victory in the Scottish Communities League Cup final.

An open top bus drove players and staff through the town as they showed off the trophy.

St Mirren defeated Hearts 3-2 at Hampden Park to win the competition for the first time in their history.

Manager Danny Lennon paid tribute to the crowd, saying: "We're certainly going to enjoy the occasion and it will live long in the memory. I'm delighted we've done it for Paisley."

Midfielder Paul McGowan said it was a moment he would cherish for the rest of his life while striker Steven Thompson, a boyhood St Mirren fan, said scoring in the final had made all his dreams come true.

The party began in the town's County Square with DJ Phil Clark playing all the fans’ favourite tunes ahead of the team's open-top bus tour.

The bus started its journey at University of West Scotland campus and travelled to the square via Neilston Rd, Causeyside Street, St Mirren Street and Gauze Street.
