Bio Extra

Became John Lambie's first ever signing for Thistle when he and team mate Billy Abercrombie joined from St Mirren. Was expected to provide Thistle with some much needed fire power, but illness severely affected his time at Firhill despite remaining at the club long after Abercrombie had departed. Subsequently, was quite often seen watching Thistle from the Jackie Husband Stand.
