Bio Extra

An inside right who signed for the club in February 1917. Played 7 games in a 2 month spell, and was never seen again in the first team, although, according to historian John Litster, he was a registered Thistle player in the two seasons which followed. Perhaps he was a soldier stationed in the area?

We can only find one man who fits the time frame for this player and that's Lawson Samuel Humphreys (son of Charles Humphreys) who was born in the third quarter of 1894 in the birth district of Colchester, Essex. His mother's maiden name was Lawson. He married Amy Elizabeth Bright of Brentwood (daughter of Alfred Bright) in 1929. His death was registered in Braintree, Essex, in 1980. All this information was found on Find My Past.

Whether this is our man or not we cannot say for certain, but he seems a likely candidate, and we will watch out for any linking statement.
