Bio Extra

Young central defender who signed was from lpswich Town by John McVeigh in August 1997. Marked his Thistle debut with a late equalising goal against Airdrie and showed plenty of promise despite the struggles of the team. Missed the latter half of that season with injury and never recaptured his early Thistle form when he returned to the Thistle side. Was handed a free transfer at the end of season 98/99 and spent a couple of years under his old boss McVeigh at Raith Rovers before joining Stranraer.
