COVE RANGERS


Good afternoon and a warm welcome to the players, management and officials of Cove Rangers FC for today’s cinch League 1 clash. It is of course a North East derby with Peterhead winning the last encounter in the Premier Sports Cup beating Paul Hartley’s Cove side 3-1, with the Granite City outfit winning the last match on league duty between the sides at Balmoor. The form book has been hot and cold heading into this afternoon’s derby clash, however, Cove will be happy with a credible 1-1 draw over Montrose alongside progressing on penalties against Stenhousemuir despite getting a fright with proceedings after 90 minutes ending 1-1. A solid fortnight made up for a defeat away to Clyde beforehand and they will use today’s clash at Balmoor as the perfect opportunity to return to winning ways. Cove Rangers, meanwhile signed Ola Adeyemo prior to last weekend’s 1-1 draw at home to Montrose. Manager Paul Hartley spoke to the Cove Rangers website and said: “We are delighted to get Ola on board, he’s been in training for the last week or so and has really impressed. Ola has pace as well as strength, so gives us a different option at the top end of the pitch, it’s also good to have another striker in because nobody really knows how things are going to go as far as the squad being affected by the pandemic goes. It was important to add a bit more cover as well as competition up front, it’s now up to Ola to make the best of the opportunity he has been given. The onus is on him to impress us, in training as well as games, and force his way into the starting line-up.” Ola, who was with League of Ireland First Division side Wexford, was a youth player with St Patrick’s Athletic and began his senior career in 2013, with University College Dublin. He signed for Dundee United in 2014 and made his Premiership debut for them, against Kilmarnock, in October of the same year. He also spent a spell at East Fife during his spell at Tannadice. Ola then secured a move to English Premier League Watford in 2016, after a successful trial with their reserve side. Ola also played for Norwegian club Valdres FK and English lower league sides Walton and Lewes before returning to Ireland to sign for Wexford in July of last year. He is eligible to play for England or the Republic of Ireland and has trained with Nigeria’s Under-23 side.

DAVIE NICOLLS I’m very pleased with the last Saturday’s result against Clyde and I think the first half we were excellent, particularly the first 30 minutes. I think we were exceptional with some of the football we played, the goals we took and the goals that we made but I knew that Clyde would come at us and that’s what happened. They got their penalty then we allowed them space to get in a header for their second goal but I think if we had said it would be 3-2 at half time, we would have taken that, considering the way the results have gone in the past few weeks for us. In the second half we had a few good half chances and again the boys played some really good stuff and hopefully that will move them on a bit and stand them in good stead moving forward. The difference from previous games was that we were on the front foot from the kick off and I also think we took care of the final ball which was important. The boys took their chances and were pretty ruthless instead of before where we maybe huffed and puffed a little, particularly the East Fife game down at Bayview. In the first half we had countless chances in that game hitting the bar and sometimes you start thinking, is this ever going to work out again! We stuck at it and got their reward in the end. We went back to basics and had a good training session on the Tuesday, we set our team out and played a practice match. We could have gone more defensive but after a discussion together we decided to go for it. Sometimes there’s no point in sitting back as that just allows teams to come at you. The best form of defence is attack and that’s what we showed. We were pleased with Andy getting his first goal of his senior career, so we are all hoping he can now get us 30 goals a season.

GARDENING LEAVE

10


Taken from the 2019 book ‘A History of Scottish Football in 100 Objects by Andy Bollen, published by Arena Sport.

Gardening leave, as a concept, has existed for years in the corporate world. The term has now permeated Scottish football and has become a familiar news splash across the back – and sometimes – front pages. In big business, it’s used to describe an employee’s suspension from work on full pay during a notice period. It’s done for a number of reasons, usually to prevent their former employees from seeing anything confidential and using this information in their new job. It’s move into football shows how far big money and the importance of fiscal responsibility as infiltrated the game. Now, top football coaches at major clubs are treated like CEOs of huge corporations, those that work is based on building up relationships like trust and, if they are paid, not take those secrets with them. The best at their job will be part of an elite group and coveted by other companies or, in this case, football clubs.

scenes. Imagine you’re McCoist and finally, after years of waiting, you get offered your dream gig. You’ve served your apprenticeship and you know you’re ready to take it on. Then the club is sold. Craig Whyte comes in then Charles Green, then the Easdales and Mike Ashley. Hardly strong and stable is it? While his former colleagues perhaps hoped Ally’s beautifully tended garden would be blighted by an outbreak of Japanese Knotweed, he remained resolute and content to receive money to stay away. Where did it all go wrong for the club’s legendary marksman? McCoist had taken over at one of the most traumatic times in the club’s history on and off the park. He had to deal with liquidation, an administration and having to start from the bottom tier.

To some, mainly employment lawyers, it’s the way forward – the correct, fitting and appropriate way to treat employees who trigger a notice period. To fans, it’s a sure-fire sign that their club is run by idiots who are who are wasting much-needed cash which could be re-invested in the team. Scottish football fans, in the main, simply view gardening leave as rewarding a losing manager for not doing his job well enough.

What irked many Rangers fans was McCoist had significantly superior wage budget than everyone else in the Championship and should’ve been miles ahead.

Scotland’s most high-profile recipient of gardening leave is Ally McCoist. He was in the fortunate position, or was for a while, of having a more manicured lawn than the pitch at his beloved Ibrox. When McCoist’s three-and-a-half year spell as manager of Rangers ended in 2014, it was announced he was being put on gardening leave. McCoist claimed he was triggering his twelve-month notice period. His wage was reported to be around £750k a year, so why wouldn’t he?

When McCoist finally left is post, he was nine points behind Hearst in the Championship, with Rangers having played one more game.

Despite what seemed like the perfect job, the club record goal-scorer had a dismal run of luck behind the

The crowds were up as fans followed the side through the leagues, but they had grown tired and many disgruntled fans vented their anger towards the manager.

After the defeat in the 2014 Petrofac Cup semi-final at the hands of part-time Alloa Athletic, McCoist stated his concerns that a number of lifelong staff were being made redundant. So, the cheeky chap decided to take £750k from the club, in protest. McCoist showed some generosity by reneging on the last three months of his salary and reached a settlement with Rangers in 2015, allowing him to take a lucrative post with BT Sport as a football pundit.

A story of football in Peterhead from 1946 and including other aspects of life enjoyed by children brought up during and immediately after the 39-49 war years. “Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory” was first serialised in the Buchan Observer in 2002 and we are delighted that Blue Toon Talk brings you the Late George Ritchie’s wonderful account of his memories to a whole new generation of Blue Toon fans.

PART 48a –

Mounting Debts… Enter the Troubleshooter

Early in 1984 news broke of mounting debts within the club. Figures being quoted were in excess of £60,000 and shared between the Football and Social Club administrations. The football club’s portion of debt from “errors” relating to tax due on player’s wages. The new committee was now picking up the tab for the slckness of the previos administrators. The club had left individual players to declare their football earnings to the Tax authorities. This had not been done and the Inland Revenue now required settlement. Most Highland League clubs were in the same boat. In fact the greater the player’s earnings, the larger the reclaimed tax was likely to be. The club announced through the Buchanie a

special meeting of all interested parties at the Rescue Hall. The perilous position of the club was explained to an attendance of around 60 supporters. It was revealed that the Social Club debts were around £30,000 making the combined total around £60,000. Things had reached such a low at the club that the brewers were no longer supplying the premises and all goods were being purchased from a local shopping outlet and then only by cash transaction.

Mr Warrander, President of both clubs had resigned and his former colleagues on the management felt they could not continue without a fresh impetus of members on the Management Committee.


Goal Hero Nat Porter scores the only goal of the 1983/84 Aberdeenshire Cup Final Replay versus Keith.

rs After much discussion regarding debt responsibility, it was felt the club had too much of a historic past to simply give up. A new committee was formed with Len Stainton as President. Len, with a degree of honesty admitted he knew little and had never had much interest in the football side. He had been a staunch and generous supporter of the Social Club. On that basis and with his business acumen, it was felt such a person was required as President. The others on the committee included Bill Campbell, Tony Emslie, Jimmy Milne, John McGowan (Sec.), Bob Redpath (Treasurer), John Sinclair, my son Steven Ritchie, and myself as Vice-President. John Sinclair was a long time acquaintance of mine, we

did not later always see eye-to-eye regarding football matters. This did not however, prevent me from acknowledging the tremendous work he did for the club in later years and he fully deserved his elevation to Vice –President in the early 90’s. I called this new group the “trouble-shooters” and it did not take those new committee people long to find out why. We were only in position a short time when the players did us a moral boosting favour by winning the Aberdeenshire Cup. Winning in the final 1-0 at home after a 1-1 draw at Keith with the following players: J. Buchan; A. Buchan, Lawson, J. Taylor,Sievwright, Krukowski, Brebner, Duncan, Bain, Porter, G. Taylor. Subs: John Morgan and Michael Cruickshank. Scorer: Porter.

Another high-profile gardening leave story centres around the months leading up to Brendan Rodger’s May 2016 appointment by Celtic.

and reportedly paid him a salary of £2.3 million a year for the privilege.

Having been removed from his post as head coach of Liverpool in October the previous year, Rodgers was on gardening leave and supposedly on track to earn £10 million over two years for weeding and mowing his lawn - £100k a week not to work.

Gardening leave makes it sound like a sweet, relaxing euphemism. “Oh, he’s on gardening leave?” So nice, colourful and harmless. But at senior management level, it can be brutal and unforgiving. In effect, it’s about removing influence from talented, oncepowerful people.

In truth, it shows how amazing these guys are that they manage to get paid for doing nothing. Celtic stumped up £3 million to bring Rodgers to Parkhead

Despite being lucrative, it must be so frustrating. Mind you, for £100k a week you could probably learn to live with it.

SUPER STRIKER?

Peterhead manager Jim McInally admitted that his heart sank when he saw Clyde goalkeeper Neil Parry pull off a wonder save to deny Andrew McCarthy his first ever goal only for the midfielder to net seconds later. McCarthy who has been with the Blue Toon since January 2020 has long been teased by his team-mates (and others) about his failure to find the net after similar dry spells at his previous clubs Partick Thistle and Queen of the South. Just five minutes in Saturday’s 3-2 success over the Bully Wee it looked like the 22 year old was going to draw a blank again as Jim explained: “Firstly I have to praise Clyde’s goalkeeper Neil Parry for an outstanding save from Derek Lyle. Derek’s header from Ryan Conroy’s cross looked a goal all the way until Neil made a great stop.” “The ball went into the air and Andy got a good header on it. That looked in all the way as well but Neil made another fantastic stop. I turned to my assistant David Nicholls and said ‘that’s it there is no more that Andrew can do, he is never going to score.” “The ball got cleared and Scott Brown set Hamish Ritchie free on the left. He sent in a

low cross and there was Andrew to turn it over the line. Everyone was delighted for him and when you watch the goal back you can see the run that he makes to reach Hamish’s cross, it is the run of an experienced goalscorer, so there is more to come from him.”

“I know he was really pleased and that his brother has a recording of Jeff Stelling announcing his goal so that will something special for him to watch.” Jim added: “Whilst the goal was a real highlight for Andrew, how he and the team played was the highlight for me. We were pegged back shortly afterwards from a soft penalty however we responded well to that with tow great goals. Clyde changed things about to go after us in attack as they felt we would get nervous about holding on to a lead.” “They threw a lot at us and we lost Andy to injury and then Simon Ferry, who had dropped into defence to help protect things, but everyone held firm and stopped Clyde threatening too much. We will take the win and move on.”

75th ANIVERSARY

1946/47

2021/22

HIGHLAND LEAGUE CHAMPIONS

29


PETERHEAD 1946-47 It was only the first full season after WWII and it will go down in the history of Peterhead FC as the most successful season to date. The club captured the Aberdeenshire Cup, the Scottish Qualifying Cup and, for the very first time, the Highland League title. To commemorate the 75th anniversary of this great season the BLUE TOON TALK will take you on a journey detailing the highs and lows of this memorable season.

It was a break from Highland League duty when Buckie Thistle rolled up at Recreation Park on the penultimate Saturday in September 1946. Having knocked out Huntly in the previous round, Peterhead were keen to progress in this qualifying cup competition which paved a way into the Scottish Cup proper. Local excitement grew in the build up to the game with a reported fleet of cars and busses making their way East from Buckie, it was touted that Recreation Park would host the biggest crowd of the season and supporters were advised to arrive early.

30


PETERHEAD 1946-47 A crowd estimated in the region of 4,000 attended this match and the conditions were as ideal as they could be. Buckie had a full strength team out whilst Peterhead were deprived of the services of Redford McIntosh being suspended, as a result of the Elgin City League Cup debacle. George Baird took his place as the replacement and in came Percy Dickie back to the team after a one game absence. The final score-line was tight and going by the chances Buckie created they would feel aggrieved that they did not win this tie, lack of clinical finishing was to blame. Territorial Peterhead had a better of the first half but the forwards never really worked hard enough to get into good scoring positions. In contrast the opportunities that Buckie were presented were extremely good but hesitancy inside the penalty area cost them three good goals. In the second half the game underwent a remarkable turnabout as for the greater part of the period, Buckie were in the ascendency. They controlling the ball well combining accuracy and speed but they often found the home defence in a less than hospitable mood. Many of the forays forward resulted in resulted in plenty of pressure with little reward. Peterhead surged forward but were too keen to pass to their opponents feet rather than string any real good play together and were therefore only causing danger in spasms of attack. They did however get that all important goal when, 15 minutes from the end, Anderson who had hardly been in the game took a shot from 20 yards. It was a deceptive lob which appeared to be travelling over the bar but dipped suddenly into the net completely deceiving the Buckie keeper. There were sighs of relief within the 4000 strong crowd when the final whistle blew with one departing supporters being heard to say “That wis the langest ten meenits in my life!”. This victory saw the team win through to the third round where the subsequent draw paired them with an away tie against Caledonian awaited, which provoked many angry responses from the Blue Toon faithful.

George Anderson

31


PETERHEAD 1946-47 The draw was particularly severe to Peterhead with the winner of the Caledonian tie to face Ross County away. This meant that Peterhead may have to face another costly trip West to Dingwall. Opinion in the town was divided with many condemning the prospect of two long away trips. A supporter penned this letter in the Buchan Observer offering a more balanced opinion: “Peterhead supporters will be disappointed at the draw which precludes most of them from watching the progress of their favourites to the final. I have great hopes of Peterhead this season and, barring accident, I should not be surprised if they go one better than they did before the war, when they contested the North semi-final at Elgin.

I base my opinion of Peterhead’s display against Buckie Thistle. That may appear a curious argument but listen! Peterhead were under strength that day and, as an attacking force, were completely out of gear. Buckie settled to a display of as fine as football as is likely to be seen in the North this season; yet Peterhead got the only goal and clung to it in the teeth of fierce opposition. A team that can do this sort of thing has no call to be downhearted over visits to Inverness and Dingwall. With the full side on duty, and the knowledge that games may still be won when everything appears to be going wrong, I expect them to pull off both ties. A fine side, with a grand defence, Peterhead are likelier Qualifying Cup winners this season than ever before in their career”

Peterhead manager and former Scottish Internationalist, Tom Townsley

JOSH MULLIGAN

It’s been a long time coming since the start of the league season but last week, Peterhead recorded their second win of the campaign beating Clyde in a five-goal thriller by three goals to two. Mulligan played on the right of a back three on Saturday and saw his fellow defender Andrew McCarthy open the scoring. David Goodwillie equalised before Scott Brown and Russell McLean put the Blue Toon 3-1 ahead but there was still time for Goodwillie to get one back but thankfully, Jim McInally’s men saw the game out. Mulligan was delighted to get the three points and he explained how he saw the 90 minutes unfold at

40

Balmoor “I thought we started the game very well. We played some of the best football we’ve played all season, they got back into the game with a soft penalty, in my opinion, but we took our chances and scored some well-worked goals. In the second half I thought we were the better team, we were under a bit of pressure during the latter stage of the game but we did well to see the game out and it stayed at 3-2.” Peterhead now have two wins and four defeats from their six league matches so far and the on-loan Dundee youngster Mulligan hopes the victory over Clyde can act as a confidence booster. Mulligan explained: “Yeah, it was a huge three points,


especially after our last few results. This game should give us more confidence and it showed that we are capable of playing well and winning games.” The youngster returned to the club in the summer, having played just one match last season as, unfortunately, an ankle injury kept him out of action. So far this season he’s played in 11 matches and is making up for lost time. “I’ve really enjoyed my time here so far even though it’s been a tough start. There’s a good spirit around the group and we all stick together. Everyone’s helped me settle in very well and they’ve all made me feel welcome.”

Cove are the visitors following their 1-1 draw last week against Montrose. Mulligan stressed the importance of his team getting the three points to build on the Clyde victory. “Clyde was a big result and it should give us all confidence going into the Cove match. We are at home which we hope will give us an advantage as it will be a tough game, but we’ve already beaten Cove at home earlier on in the season, in the cup, so hopefully we can put in a similar performance and get the three points.“

MATCH REPORT

saturday 11th september 2021

Manager McInally had asked his players to play themselves into the game however they did even better than that by being on the front foot with Russell McLean going close with a shot after just two minutes. The bright start was rewarded with a goal and everyone at the club was delighted at the goalscorer. Clyde’s debutant goalkeeper Neil Parry made a fantastic stop to keep out a close range Derek Lyle header and as Peterhead kept up the pressure Parry produced a wonder stop to turn away a header from Andrew McCarthy. The hosts refused to give up and after Clyde had temporarily ended the danger Ritchie was released on the left and his low cross from the left was turned in by McCarthy from three yards out. It was McCarthy’s first ever senior goal and the cheers to mark it were head far from the north-east with the 22 year old’s playing colleagues, friends and family now unsure what to tease him about! Unfortunately the good feeling of being ahead only lasted four minutes with Clyde drawing level through David Goodwillie’s expertly taken penalty. It looked a soft award as Mulligan challenged the one-time Scotland man however that did not trouble Goodwillie as he slotted past Long. There were fears that this set-back could set home nerves jangling however on 18 minutes Ritchie danced his way in from the right wing and McCarthy continued the dance by side-stepping a couple of challenges and teeing up skipper Scott Brown to slam home a shot from the edge of the box. A one goal advantage became a two goal advantage a minute later with a wonderfully worked goal. After a bout of possession and switching the play from side to side Ryan

44

Conroy was set free on the left. His low cross picked out Russell McLean and ‘Rusty’ did the rest when he took a touch and slammed home. It was a great 60 seconds for Peterhead and the celebrations marked the sense of relief after recent frustrations. Clyde made two substitutions in a bid to change the flow of the game and the moves worked with Goodwillie grabbing a second goal four minutes from half-time. One of the replacements Robert Jones sent a header against the woodwork and as the ball bounced around the home box Goodwillie dived to head in via the underside of the bar. The half-time whistle was sounded with home fans concerned that their side’s display had only secured a one goal advantage and fears that nerves would be tested in the second 45 minutes. Goodwillie and Ross Cunningham had openings early in the second half however Long was equal to them with Peterhead striker denied a fourth goal when Parry denied him in a one on one situation. Peterhead, despite losing McCarthy to injury, were dealing with everything Clyde were throwing at them however a Goodwillie drive that flashed wide and another effort from Jones gave them a reminder that the game was not won. An exhausted Ferry went off with 15 minutes to go however his replacement Alan Cook helped keep things tight at the back. A Billy Mortimer cross caused some panic however Long was not called into action Peterhead – Long, Mulligan, McDonald, McCarthy (Cameron 65), Strachan, Ritchie, Scott Brown, Ferry (Cook 75) Conroy, Lyle (Payne 65), McLean. Unused substitutes – Kesson, Musanhu, Wilson

NORTHERN SLANT by Peter Myers

MAKING A MARK IN ENGLAND Among Cove Rangers’ recent signings was 21-yearold centre-back Jevan Anderson. The former Formartine United player had returned to the northeast after a spell with English League One side Burton Albion, whom he joined after a trial in 2019. He is one of many Scots who have tried their luck with the less fashionable clubs south of the border. Some have made the grade and carved out a worthwhile career for themselves while others have returned north after benefiting from the experience. Jevan was interviewed for Formartine’s match programme during a visit to his former club, where his father, Russell, is assistant manager and a former captain of Aberdeen. Jevan praised Burton manager,

46

Nigel Clough, who had given him great encouragement: “He’s been in the game a really long time and he tells you exactly how it is, which is exactly what you need. An honest assessment on how you are performing both in games and in training.” Jevan lamented that there was no reserve team for Burton’s first-team squad players other than the Burton Youth Academy. However, he later had the consolation of getting game time while on loan to Hereford and Kettering. The 1950s and 60s saw many Scottish footballers trying their luck south of the border. Accrington Stanley was a popular destination, especially when it


was managed by Scots manager Walter Galbraith. There were so many of its team from Scotland that the club was nicknamed “Accrington McStanley”. Bury was another Lancashire club which attracted a fair number of Scottish players. Some of them, including Stewart Imlach from Lossiemouth and later of Nottingham Forest and Scotland fame, were discovered by Willie Shanks, a referee from Fochabers, who scouted in the north of Scotland for Bury and several other English clubs. Among the Scots to play for Bury in the 1950s was Peterhead man Jimmy Lovie. He had earlier served his football apprenticeship with Dundee United but returned north in August 1953 to play for Peterhead

in the Highland League. Bury showed an interest in him but there was an on/off saga over a prospective deal until Lovie signed for the Second Division club and made his debut for the reserve team on February 2, 1957. Lovie broke through to Bury’s first team but the outside-left was later displaced by Northern Irish international Norman Lockhart. When the latter injured his leg, Lovie came back into the side and teamed up with Garmouth-born Jimmy Munro whose career had started with Aberdeen during the war and came to Gigg Lane from Lincoln City in January 1958.

NORTHERN SLANT by Peter Myers

(continued from page 47)

Bill Paterson (Doncaster Rovers)

In an away match against Chesterfield, Lovie’s pen portrait in the programme describes him as “a typical hardy Scot with a powerful shot in both boots”. By coincidence, Lovie later enjoyed more success with Chesterfield, who he joined from Bournemouth, making 95 first-team appearances for the Derbyshire club compared with 51 outings with Bury. Bobby Samuel, who played for Aberdeen junior side Sunnybank and Dundee United, joined Lincoln City in July 1967 on the recommendation of former Tannadice team-mate Lewis Thom who had moved to the Imps from Shrewsbury Town. In a recent interview in a Sunday newspaper, Samuel recalled that he went down for a trial and was offered a contract. He said: “It was a lovely place. But there weren’t any of the glamorous trappings of modern football. Even playing in the reserves was a good experience because we played teams like Arsenal and West Ham.” Samuel later turned out for Margate and Stevenage before returning to Aberdeen. He then had spells with Clachnacuddin, Keith, Peterhead and Buckie Thistle.

54

An Aberdeenshire man who enjoyed great success south of the border was Bob Murray who was with Stockport County for 11 seasons. The 19-year-old Murray was in his second season with Inverurie Loco Works when County manager Andy Beattie, a former Locos and Preston North End player, was tipped off by his brother, Archie, about the Kemnay-born half-back’s potential. The youngster was invited to Edgeley Park in October 1951 and clearly impressed the Cheshire club who offered to sign him as a part-time player and were prepared to find him a job which would allow him to complete his apprenticeship. Murray accepted and headed south on November 19. He was found a job at the Avro aircraft factory at nearby Woodford and soon settled down. Murray impressed with his displays in the reserves and made his first-team debut in September 1952. He was a virtual ever present while playing as a half-back for the rest of that season, netting the first of his 32 goals for County in a home match against York City in March 1953. In September 1955, Murray was joined at Edgeley Park by another Aberdeenshire man, Willie Moir, who was appointed player/manager after moving


Willie Moir (Bolton Wanderers)

from Bolton Wanderers with whom he had been captain. Moir, who was born at Stoneywood, served in the RAF during the war. It was while stationed at RAF Kirkham, Lancashire, that Bolton Wanderers’ chief scout, Bob Jackson, spotted his talent during a match and Moir was signed at the end of the 1942-43 season. He played initially in the outside-left berth before switching to insideright. He was the First Division’s top scorer in season 1948-49, scoring 25 goals. Moir made his debut with his new club against Bradford City on October 1, 1955, but it was more than two years later that Moir and Murray played in their most memorable game for Stockport. It was on January 4, 1958 that they knocked out First Division side Luton Town 3-0 in the third round of the FA Cup. Moir was sacked as County manager in July 1960, but Murray continued to turn out for the Hatters. When his career at Edgeley Park ended in May 1963, he had played in 465 league and cup games. Bill Paterson was another Scot who was recruited by a senior club while doing his military service in England. Paterson, who was born at Kinlochleven, began his football career playing in the Highland League with Inverness club Caledonian. While doing

his National Service, Paterson turned out for Midland League side Ransome and Marles of Newark-on-Trent and from whom he was signed by Division II club Doncaster Rovers in 1950. The defender spent five seasons with the Yorkshire club before enjoying greater success with Rangers after a spell with Newcastle United. Paterson eventually returned to his first club, Caledonian, where he was player/manager in 1964-65.
