Scottish Premier League club Partick Thistle are looking for a fan to take on the role of their yellow mascot Kingsley.

The spiky sensation caused a global reaction after the mascot, designed by Turner Prize nominee David Shrigley, was unveiled two seasons ago.

The “demented sun god of Scotland” was created as a part of a deal with US investment firm, Kingsford Capital.

Jay McGhee has retired from the position of Kingsley as he is about to become a father.

He told BBC Radio Scotland that the successful candidate would need to be good at conveying messages with their hands and know how to handle duct tape to keep the costume in tact.

To know more about Kingsley, here’s an interview with him to gain some much needed knowledge.

Partick’s officials want the successful candidate to be a part of multiple selfies with fans, board members and celebrities, to entertain superstars and children by larking around and be willing to work weekends.

There’s also the opportunity to go to interviews, TV studios and photoshoots too.

Besides meeting the celebrities, there’s also the benefit of being a Partick Thistle season ticket holder.

Ian Maxwell, Partick Thistle managing director, said about the position: “We’ve decided to turn to our fans to find our next Kingsley.

“We want to see passion, creative thinking and ideas that are a bit out there, just like the mascot should be.

“We have exciting plans for Kingsley next season that we hope will help keep the momentum around the club moving in the right direction.”

For those who are interested you will have submit a 2 minute video along with a CV and a cover letter.

The winner will be unveiled before Partick Thistle’s Betfred Cup game with Queen of The South on 23rd July.
