Bio Extra

Brought to Firhill by John McVeigh from Airdrie with the reputation as a young striker with the ability to plunder goals. His Thistle career got off to the best possible of starts with a goal on his debut against Hamilton. However, that was his only competitive goal in Thistle colours, as he spent most of the remainder of that season on the substitute bench. Featured just once when Tommy Bryce took charge of team affairs before he accepted the offer of a free transfer.
