One Hundred up for Louis Longridge

Queen’s Park’s ‘Mr Versatile’ Louis Longridge was presented with a one-off commemorative framed jersey by sponsors, and great friends of the club, David and Lynne McCartney, to mark his 100 games for the Spiders before kick-off at our home game with Morton on Saturday.

Before donning Black and White colours and making his debut against Partick Thistle in a League Cup tie in 2020, Louis played for Hamilton Accies, Raith Rovers, Falkirk and Dunfermline and he joined team-mate Tommy Robson in the 100 club in the recent game against Ayr United.

Head Coach Robin Veldman was delighted to see such a good influence in his playing squad reach that landmark as he explained: “Louis is an amazing professional who has a lot of experience and uses it to do a good job teaching and guiding our young players on and off the pitch. He also sets a great example with the amount of energy he puts into training and playing.

“He has been a midfielder throughout his career however we have used him as a full-back this season and whilst it was new to him, he has gone out and played in that position with desire. I believe he will be a coach in the future but at the moment I am happy to have him as a player.”

Louis, who has scored 11 times in Black and White colours and been part of a League 2 winning squad and a squad that secured promotion to the Championship via the play-offs, said: “I was delighted to reach 100 games for the club and to be presented with the framed shirt. I have enjoyed my time here and reaching three figures has allowed me to look back at what we have achieved.

“My favourite game of the 100 would be the Play-off Final second leg at Airdrie. We had played them seven times that season and had never got the better of them. To go to their home ground and win 2-1 after falling a goal behind was a terrific game.”
