Bio Extra

Made his debut at Stranraer in September of 1999. A long drawn out work permit application saga threatened his transfer from Namibian League Champions Black Africa to Firhill. Holder of 25 caps for his native Namibia, 2 of which were won while a Thistle player. He became a bit of a favourite with the fans in his season at Firhill, although his form was a bit erratic. Incoming manager John Lambie wasn't so impressed, and his contract wasn't renewed at the end of the season.
