Front (L to R)

Tommy McComiskey, Billy Hume, Roy? McCorquodale, Tommy Paterson, Alex Stewart

Roy? Tommy, and Alex were a lethal trio and scored many goals for the club in the short time they were together.

From memory Alex Stewart was on an amateur form and elected to go to Arniston Rangers, from where
Airdirie signed him. So Whitburn could do nothing to stop him going and they wouldn’t get a fee. I think he was from Whitburn or Harthill.
