Bio Extra

Signed from Falkirk by Billy Lamont. Brian had previously played with Dundee and Chesterfield before signing for Thistle. His time at Firhill was mostly uninspiring, and he is probably best remembered for replacing John Brough in goals against Hamilton and keeping a clean-sheet. Living and working in Dundee, training was difficult, and Brian left the club at the end of the season.
