Bio Extra

Popular winger, signed from Queen's Park, who played in the poor team which Benny Rooney constructed. One of the few constructive, exciting players in the team at the time, it was a disappointment when he was soon transferred to Falkirk in return for Alan Mackin. From Falkirk he moved to Kilmarnock and Stirling before signing for Clyde in 1990. As many ex-Jags do, he has given various Thistle defences a hard time of it.
