A 40-feet wide banner wishing St Mirren good luck in the CIS Cup Final, on Sunday has been erected in the centre of Paisley.
Renfrewshire Council organised for the giant banner to be hung between buildings in High Street yesterday. And its message reads: “Good luck to St Mirren FC. Paisley is proud to support The Saints.”
It also features the logo of the recently-launched campaign to promote the Paisley with the strapline ‘Paisley is…marching in with The Saints’.
St Mirren play Rangers in the final of the CIS Cup at Hampden on Sunday.
Provost Celia Lawson said: “It’s a fantastic achievement for St Mirren to be in the final of a national football tournament. I’m sure they will do themselves, the fans and the town of Paisley proud when they run on to the turf at Hampden.
“St Mirren is synonymous with Paisley and any success they have rubs off on the town as well.
“Everyone get a great lift when Saints are on the up and especially when they bring a trophy home to the town.
“We wanted to show our support for the club before the final and there isn’t anything more obvious than a giant banner hung across the High Street.”
St Mirren chairman Stewart Gilmour said: “It’s a wonderful gesture from the council to show their support for the club. We’re proud to be from Paisley and we want to win the cup for the fans and the boost it will bring to the town.”
