Bio Extra

Hugh spent just over a full season at Meadowside, featuring in 18 of the competitive fixtures if 1903-04, almost always in the #5 position. It was a more than decent season for the club, who finished 6th= in what was a very entertaining and competitive top-flight competition, Third Lanark taking the title and Hearts taking the runners-up spot. Hugh made the switch to Bo'ness for season 1904-05, who were one of the instigators in reforming the Eastern Football League for that season. Hugh settled there for a number of seasons, and represented Linlithgowshire FA in inter-association matches. By 1910 he was playing works football with the Star Foundry Patternshop.
