Bio Extra

Was an early season arrival from Aberdeen in 1993 and, despite suffering a badly broken nose in a League Cup tie with Morton, he soon became a permanent fixture in the Thistle defence, remaining so for the next 5 years. Few players suffered the heartache of that dreadful relegation at Tannadice more than Gregg Watson did. Went on to play in the lower leagues after a spell at Livingston where he won a Second Division Championship medal.
