born in Scotland

Alexander Gair Stott was born on Sunday, 19th April, 1925, in Monifieth, Angus.

The 5' 10 (12st 4lbs) forward signed for David Meiklejohn's Thistle on Friday, 4th November, 1949, having most recently been with Dundee.

Aged 24, he made his debut appearance on Saturday, 5th November, 1949, in a 1-0 defeat at home to Heart of Midlothian in the SFL First Division.

Amazingly, Alex scored his first 3 goals for Thistle in the same match! His account-opening hat-trick was registered on Saturday, 19th November, 1949, in a 4-0 win at home to St Mirren in the SFL First Division.

He scored the last of his 85 goals on Tuesday, 12th May, 1953, in a 3-1 neutral-venue win against Heart of Midlothian in a Benefit match.

That turned out to be his last game for the club, having clocked up 124 appearances as a Jag.

His club-list included Portsmouth, Dundee, Partick Thistle and Hamilton Academical.

Alex died in 1998, aged 72 or 73. *
