Bio Extra

This right winger was a Glasgow boy who moved on from Battlefield to Dalry Thistle. As a player with the latter, he won two Junior Scotland caps in April 1925. In front of 6,000 at Colwyn Bay, he appeared in a 4-0 win over Wales before travelling on to Birmingham the following week as the Scots went down to England by 4 goals to 1, also in front of a 6,000 crowd. At the time, Thistle raided the Scots team for three players, signing the left-wing pair of Harry Corrance and David McLean, as well as offering a trial to J. Muir. As to his identity, only his forename initial is revealed at the Scottish Junior FA website. He was reportedly the son of a prominent Daily Record journalist.
