born 14th Feb, 1924

Quoted from image:One of Hibs most versitille players, capped twice in 1949, against the Army last season and a reserve again this year. Plays anywhere in defence with equal brilliance. Joined Hibs 1943 from Newton Juvenilles but fell ill shortly after his 1949 caps-a few months in Switzerland affected a ???? polio cure and his cool, crisp kicking and steady tackling will bring him more honours yet. Since his “come back” he’s never lost his place.
