Bio Extra

Ross had his first taste of Development League football towards the end of the 2015/16 season, before establishing himself as the first choice Development team left back in 2016-17. With a cultured left foot, Ross proved a dependable full back with a wicked cross which caused defences problems time and time again. His first-team debut in May 2017 was verging on criminal, with the disgracefully disinterested David Amoo (being playing out of position at full-back) having to be hauled off after 30 minutes of an end-of-season League game at home to Aberdeen in which Thistle were 4 down after just 26 minutes play. Poor Ross probably still has the mental scars of the 6-0 defeat and the chorus of boos which reverberated around Firhill. He featured just once more for the first team a couple of months later in a pre-season loss at Dumbarton, but that was that. He parted ways with the club in the summer of 2018 and seems to have given up the game.
