Bio Extra

William was a winger who could play on the left or right and came to prominence with the very strong Maryhill side of the mid 1900s. The Hill sides of the day would supply a decent number of players to the senior grade and, indeed, future-JAG William McIntyre was a team-mate of our man. William's sterling performances were recognised at the highest level of the junior game when he was selected to play against Junior England in April, 1906. Alas, the Scots lost 2-0 in front of 3,000 at Villa Park. He was snapped up by the Queen's Park in November 1906, and turned out for the Spiders in 26 league games over the course of his first two seasons. He fell away from the first team scene though, and latterly had to be content with appearances in the second eleven.

On Christmas Day 1909, William played a trial game for the Partick Thistle reserves and signed early in the new year. He was back in Maryhill and would play at Firhill Park, the brand new home of Partick Thistle. His only first team appearance came in a pleasant Monday evening game against Celtic, played on 18th April for the benefit of Thistle's famous international goalie, Willie Howden. The match was originally due to be played (Friday) 3rd January 1908 but was postponed due to fog and rearranged for more than 2 years later! The game took ages to warm up but never reached any great standard. Towards the end of the 1st half Willie Gardiner put Thistle ahead after a defensive error. In the 2nd half Celtic scored with a fine solo effort also after a defensive error.
