Bio Extra

Joined Thistle from Queen of the South in the summer of 1998 and a broken arm sustained in a pre-season friendly meant he had to wait some time before finally making his debut. He took a while to win over the fans but had an excellent first half of season in 99/00 and signed an extension to his contract. However, he found his first team opportunities limited after this and eventually returned to his former club, QOS, in November 2000 in search of first team football.
