Bio Extra

Signed from Campsie Black Watch, he played fairly regularly in his first two seasons, although he was not consistent enough for a regular place, and often appeared as a substitute. In his last full season he became a regular goalscorer at last, his tally of five goals in the Scottish Cup being particularly enjoyable. Left Firhill to join Hamilton, before moving on to Dunfermline.
