His main achievement was in the 1971–72 season, when he played for the Dumbarton team that won the Second Division. He was generally regarded as the strongest player in that team. He set the record for the most goals scored for Dumbarton in that season, scoring five goals in one game.
Most Dumbarton supporters were stunned when they sold him to Carlisle United early in the next season. He was not particularly successful at Carlisle, and now lives in Dumbarton.
