Player Profile

The Lanarkshire wing-half was used mainly as back-up during seven seasons as a Fox but he still managed to amass 100 league appearances for the club following his move to Filbert Street from Liverpool, where it didn't work out for him.

He'd impressed in Scotland and caught the eye on Merseyside but he didn't even manage a league appearance at Anfield before his switch to Leicestershire.

He was given a more important role when he moved on to Watford, evident when he skippered the Hornets in an FA Cup clash with Leicester in 1936. He stayed at Vicarage Road after his playing days, becoming manager for just short of a decade.

His younger brother Andrew actually signed for City after completing military service but never got a senior outing.
