Bio Extra

This left-back from Blantyre Vics joined Thistle in the springtime of 1940 but made little impression, although his only first-team appearance in April 1940 was a positive experience, the Jags defeating Kilmarnock in a midweek Regional League West fixture at Firhill, by 5 goals to 2. Although he played as an amateur, he was "freed" in October 1941 and continued to play with the Vics. He rejoined the senior game in August 1947, signing for a couple of seasons with Third Lanark. Very much on the fringes with the top-flight side, he moved to Cowdenbeath where he was an ever-present in their Division B campaign of 1949-50. After 3 years in Fife, he signed for Morton in May 1952 and spent two seasons at Cappielow. Although he never appeared for the first-team in League action he featured in 6 of the League Cup games in 1953-54 as the Greenock side marched through to the Quarter Finals.
