Bio Extra

In an inexperienced Thistle side of season 97/98 Lawrence was brought to Firhill by John McVeigh to add some badly needed experience to the side, which he more than did. Led the Thistle front line with great enthusiasm and no lack of talent and scored memorable winning goals against Hamilton and St Mirren. Left Thistle on a free transfer after relegation to join Stenhousemuir.
