Biography


Signed from Edina Hearts in 1965, the rugged full-back was given an early first team baptism, making his debut against St Mirren in February 1965.

He kept his place for the next two games until Bobby Cox recovered from injury and saw no first team action the following season. It was only as Bobby Cox's career drew to a close that the Edinburgh born defender saw first team action agan.

Indeed, he figured in the first leg of the Fairs Cup semi final against Leeds United. He never quite established himself as a first team regular though, vying for the number three jersey with Doug Houston for the following two seasons.

In total, he made 44 appearances before his move to Rugby Park as part of the deal which took Jim McLean back to Dens Park as coach in 1970.

He made an unhappy start, being ordered off on his Kille debut! He only played five times in his one and only season at Rugby Park and moved to South Africa in 1971. There, he played for Highland Power, Arcs, ELU Boks, HP and Lusitano
