Player Profile

The Dykehead-born forward enjoyed two spells with Fosse, the first between 1897 and 1900 before returning to the club for a season in 1901 after a brief stint with Glossop.

A versatile option in the attacking line, he made over 120 appearances in all competitions and chipped in with almost 40 goals along the way.

He started his career north of the border with Wishaw Thistle before having trials with Motherwell and then moving on to Airdrie before making the move south to Leicester.

He was top scorer in his last season before the move to Second Division rivals Glossop but problems on the pitch, with just two goals, and off the pitch, which brought about a club suspension, saw him return to Leicester sooner than expected.

After his second spell with Fosse he moved back up to Scotland with Hamilton and his hometown club.
