Player Profile

Walsh was a Fife-born inside-forward who moved to City in 1956 after struggling to cement a regular first-team role against stiff competition in the Scottish League with Celtic.

His aim was regular first-team action and he got it, whilst repaying City for their trust in his abilities in front of goal with an impressive goal return of 80 goals in 176 league appearances at Filbert Street. He also has the honour of scoring the club's first-ever goal in European competition.

Starting out at Blairhall Boys Club, the forward moved on to Valleyfield Colliery and Bo'ness United before getting his big chance with Scottish giants Celtic. He got regular appearances for the Glasgow club but his performances were never enough to see him given a starting role week-in, week-out as he desired.

David Halliday brought him south of the border in November 1956 but it wasn't until March of the following year that he got his bow as the club secured the Second Division championship. Walsh was a regular starter for numerous years in the blue and white after that, grabbing the goals to keep his starting role. He won the club's top-scorer honours twice in the top-flight.

But his form deserted him towards the latter end of his career with City, and indeed his professional football career as a whole, and he finished off with a player-manager stint with Rugby.
