Bio Extra

Not to be confused with the young winger of more recent times, but a striker, and not one of the most successful of John Lambie's forays into the transfer market. He was still a useful player whose hard work was never translated into goals scored. Had a long wait before scoring his first goal for Thistle, ironically a winner against Aberdeen the club from whom he was signed. After leaving Thistle he returned north to Peterhead.
