Biography


A frontman who was only to play a cameo role during his days in dark blue.

The centre-forward was signed early in 1956 from Berwick Rangers. Manager Willie Thornton was no doubt attracted by the fact that Watt had scored at a prolific rate for the Shielfield side 13 goals in 17 appearances for the side newly elevated from the C Division - but the demands of the top division proved a step too far.

His debut in a 4-1 defeat by Clyde at Shawfield in January shortly after his £3,000 transfer was his only one that season.

Even although he managed seven goals from thirteen outings in what was a less than successful 1956-57 campaign, £1250 of their outlay for the player was recouped when he was sold to Queen of the South at the end of the season.

The striker failed to even figure in the Doonhamers' first team and was quickly moved on to Stranraer for whom he scored twice in six appearances before being freed at the end of April 1958.
