Great that you are in the 4-4-2 and 4-3-3 teams Davie. I never did go for that 3-5-2 formation anyway and as previous you would be any all time team that I was picking.

Davie did brilliantly in making a professional career in the game and remains to this day a real and true friend. My belief is that he had ability and raw talent that went largely untapped in his professional career largely due to the Largs coaching philosophy (removing the natural ability of players - as we can all see this philosophy still exists to this day). Davie's game revolved about receiving the ball early down the channels and I didn't see much evidence of this within his professional career where he was largely involved in playing the game with his back to goal. I had the pleasure of playing with him at junior level where he proved to be more than a handful to the very best that the junior game had to offer. A true Ru'glen man that would certainly feature in any team that I was picking.

The only player to have washed his football laces to avoid buying a new pair. But what a player. Should have been a star and house hold name. Better goalscorer than Andy Gray.

How much would he be worth in the transfer market today? Would he be the most expensive Ruglonian ? Would it be higher that the 9.5 million pounds paid by Moscow for McGeady or the 850, 000 paid by Barcelona for Archibald. If you were a manager making a bid, how much would you be prepared to pay for him ?

Hello, My name is Susy. I live in Hong Kong. I love football from the UK and watch games most weekends on a Saturday or Sunday night. My favourite team is Man U. I love to wear their bright red jersey most weekends. I came across this website when surfing the internet. I seen your photograph and read your profile. You appear to have been a good footballer and I would like if you can help me understand more about football in the United Kingdom. (a). I collect auto graphs from players around the world: can you send me your signature please ? . (b) Can you explain the offside rule to me ? . c) Why do footballers seem to be so angry ? I am going down my local bar tomorrow night to watch a game: if you are in town please let me know and I would love to talk to you about football. Susy.

Lloydie was top centre forward,played with Alloa, Raith Rovs,Stranraer,Clyde,Stirling Albion and had a season with Clydebank in the top division ,also played with Lesmahagow and Pollok juniors. He started with Fernhill Athletic on the red blaes parks in Fernhill as did the majority of the players nominated.

Davie was the Mario Kempes of Fernhill,not for his goal scoring but for his long girlie hair !!! But a superb finisher in his day - just ask him.

Im living in Sheffield for nearly last 20 yrs, although come home to Royal Burgh and see a few old faces. I enjoyed my football days from Fernhill Athletic till I finished with Stirling Albion. I had a great time and miss playing still. Good luck to whoever gets in team, im glad to have got the chance to play at Ibrox and Parkhead ETC.

Dave was a natural goal scorer. I think he was one of the top goal scorers in Scotland when he played for Clydebank. He came from Fernhill. Last I heard he was manager of a non league team in England. Dave if you are out there tell us some stories.
