Born in March 1938, Tommy Mackle would begin his professional career in the green and white of Celtic after signing for the club from Johnstone Burgh in 1959. Unfortunately he couldn’t displace Bertie Auld from The Bhoys’ starting eleven, going on to make only 5 appearances for the Glasgow club before his departure in 1961, although he would manage to score twice for the club during that time, including a goal against Raith Rovers on his debut.

Spending most of the 1960/61 season on National Service in Germany, Celtic would free Mackle at the end of that term and while the winger would stay on with the army, Dundee would come in for his services. However, just as he had at Celtic, Mackle would have the unenviable task of trying to displace a star player from the Dundee line-up, this time in the shape of Hugh Robertson.

That task would prove too tall an order and after only 3 appearances for The Dark Blues during the 1962/63 season Mackle would move to Forfar Athletic. Remembered at the Station Park club as a solid midfield general, Mackle would arguably spend his happiest years in the game at Forfar, although he would end his playing career at the club against whom he had scored his first senior goal, Raith Rovers, where he retired at the end of the 1967/68 season.
