Bio Extra

This Girvan Academy pupil was a youth player with both Ayr United and Hamilton Accies, but got his first taste of mens football with Maybole Juniors. He joined Thistle in the summer of 2007 and, aged 18, came off the bench twice in League games towards the end of that season. Played in 4 of the pre-season games in 2008, and was loaned to Albion Rovers in October, playing several times for the third Division side during his 3 month spell there. Back at Firhill he made the bench in May 2009 in a match against Airdrie, but never featured again.

He was released in the summer of 2009 and moved to Nebraska in the United States to begin a scholarship at Bellevue University. He returned to Scotland in June 2010 and joined Queen's Park. On his memorable debut at Hampden in July, he put in a man-of-the-match performance against Livingston, his hat-trick enabling the Spiders to pull off a shock 3-2 win in the Challenge Cup tie. He made 13 competitive appearances for QP, before heading back stateside to Bellevue for a further two seasons.

Back in Scotland again, Eaglesham signed a two-year contract with Scottish Junior Football West Premier League side Glenafton Athletic in January 2013, but a cruciate ligament injury ended his footballing ambitions just months later. Moved to LA and took up bodybuilding as well as becoming a youth football coach.
