Time at club: 1965-1969 1976
The Scottish striker had two spells with the club and continued to be involved after he retired from playing.
He first joined Vale in 1965 playing in Stanley Matthews’ youth-orientated Valiants line-up. He was top-scorer in 1966-67 but lost his place after criticising manager Gordon Lee. He was subsequently loaned out to Chester in 1969 and left to join them on a free transfer shortly afterwards.
After spells in non-league, notably with Stafford Rangers, he returned to Vale Park for a £5,000 fee in 1975 and he marked his home debut with a hat-trick. He was the club’s top scorer for a second time in 1975-76. He left in 1978 to join Northwich Victoria.
After retiring as a player he continued to be involved with the club both as commercial manager (1982-85) as a match summariser on local radio.
