Mark Humphries was an horrendous player.
I remember him playing left back one day and every single ball (without exaggeration!) that he tried to play up the wing ended out of the pitch.
It was frustrating for a while until it became hilarious.

Lee Dair, almost forgot about him, another misfit that dwelt on his so called gers connection, what a useless tube he was.

Also Willie Gibson, he was a massive let down.

13 years between your reply and previous post. Have you been in jail for a serious offence?

Anyone remember Jack Dempsey, wee barrel chested midfielder who “ punched above his weight” literally.
He was what was called an “ enforcer”.
Wasn’t the greatest of midfielders but anyone giving any of our players “ a doing”......wee jack would step up!!
I remember the chant “ Dempsey gonna get yuh”.......well fierce Laughing

Pretty sure it was late sixties......most teams had at least one nutter and methinks ours was out on licence. Laughing

There's only one Dempsey listed in Neil Brown's list of former players, a Jim Dempsey who played at centre half.

My memory not great going that far back. Was it late sixties?
I started going around 1965..... Sad .

I loved the white shirt with two blue hoops. Same as Montrose only their hoops were thinner than ours.....IF I recall correctly.....those were the days💙. Very Happy

Jim played from 71 to 75 racking up 3 figures in appearances, he excelled in sending the opposition players several feet in the air.
