Bio Extra

Was a major surprise as the man chosen to succeed John McVeigh. Tommy had plenty of experience of football in the lower divisions and it was thought that that experience plus his talent on the field would be a winning combination. Initially things looked to be going well as Thistle topped the division but a run of 7 consecutive defeats left the team and the manager struggling. The end came on March 8th, ironically just after Thistle had defeated Alloa. Tommy briefly remained as a player before rejoining Queen of the South. He spent another season playing at Abroath before retiring from the senior game at the age of 40. Tommy continued to play and manage in the juniors into the 2000s.
