The lad hit the bar in the 77 final but I dont remember him lifting what was a pretty poor final. Played only a few times for the first team. Jock Wallace gave him a chance at strart of 77-78, but soon dropped after we lost first two league games. Only made a few first team starts after that - although seemed to be a prolific scorer for the Reserves.
