Bio Extra

This half-back from Laurieston had a 6-week spell at Thistle in September/October 1889, registering 4 wins and 2 defeats. Played once in competitive action as the Jags won 4-1 at Summerton Athletic to get their Glasgow Cup campaign off to a winning start. It's unclear what the exact arrangement was, but a 5-0 defeat at Cowlairs signalled the end of it. Erroneously listed as 'Paisley' on occasion.
