Bio Extra

Booth was born in Stranraer, but moved to Haddington, East Lothian, aged three, with his parents and elder brother, Tom. He was educated at Haddington Infant School, King's Meadow Primary and Knox Academy. He joined Hibernian aged 10, and played for the youth team that won a league and cup double in 2009. After loan spells with Arbroath and Brechin City in 2010, he broke into the Hibernian first team in 2011. He was selected less frequently during 2012 and was loaned to Livingston for the 2012–13 season and then to Raith Rovers the following season. Booth moved to Partick Thistle in January 2015, initially on loan. After three years at Firhill he signed for Dundee United in May 2018, leaving the club in August 2019.

After leaving Dundee United, Booth agreed a two-year contract with Bury that was due to be completed upon the lifting of a transfer embargo. The embargo was never lifted and Bury were subsequently expelled from the English Football League, which meant that the transfer never took place. On 16 September 2019, Booth signed for St Johnstone on a contract until January 2020. In December 2019 his contract was extended until the end of the season. Booth was one of three St Johnstone players to sign a short term six-month contract extension in May 2020, as the club formulated plans amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. On 28 February 2021, he started for St Johnstone as they won 1–0 against Livingston in the February 2021 Scottish League Cup Final.
