Bio Extra

This left winger was always on the first-team fringes in the senior game, making 10 or so League appearances over the course of three seasons at Falkirk (1919-1921) and East Stirlinghsire (1921-22). He was playing with Largs Thistle in 1922-23 when he got the last-minute call to stand in for Willie Salisbury on 10th March, 1923. Around 10,000 were at Firhill to see Angus in action against his old club, Falkirk, in what was a quirky twist of fate. A header 3 mins before half-time was enough to win the points for 3rd top Falkirk. It was a keenly fought match with nothing much between the teams. Defences were largely on top and the forwards struggled to make an impact. Alex Donald hit the bar in the second half but that was as close as Thistle came, and they fell to 13th. There were no advances on that one-off appearance for Angus, and we're unaware of any further trial or guest games, even at reserves level.
