Bio Extra

A promising young right winger who found it near-impossible to break into Bertie Auld's excellent Partick Thistle side of mid-1970s. In the summer of 1978, tired of waiting for his chance, Jim made the switch to Hamilton Accies in Division 1 where he played 5 times in their League campaign of 1978-79. His next move, a year later, was a bold one; West German football with Atlas Delmenhorst! His German adventure lasted several years and he found success with Hessen Kassel (1981-1983) before moving on to Göttingen (1983-84) and CSC 03 Kassel (1984-85). Landed back home with Motherwell in August 1985, with whom he played a couple of times in the Premier League, before landing at Cumnock Juniors in 1986 where he finished his career.
