Player Profile

Dryburgh was actually a ice hockey player for Kirkcaldy Fliers, his hometown club, before starting his football career with Lochgelly Albert. Moves to Aldershot and Rochdale followed before he arrived at City in 1950 to spend four years.

His debut came in September of the same year at home against Notts County and he went on to fall just one appearance short of his century, netting a creditable 30 goals along the way. He was the first Leicester player recorded as scoring within the first ten seconds of a game - against Swansea in March 1953.

But he lost his regular starting role to Peter Small in City's Second Division championship-winning side and failed to recapture his impressive early Foxes form.
