Bio Extra

American central defender who joined Thistle from Dundee in September 1994. He was sent off on his debut for the club, but went on to become an important player in the Jags defence alongside the likes of Stevie Welsh and Gregg Watson. A big, strong defender, his two years at Firhill ended disappointingly when he was given the equivilant of three red cards in the tunnel after the final whistle for comments he made to the referee about Rod McDonald being sent off (and reported for crossing himself in front of the Rangers fans!). It resulted in an eight game ban, and he didn't play again that season.
