Distinguishing Features It's fair to say he's not the tallest player we've ever seen at Saughton - but, despite that, he's actually pretty good in the air. Killer left foot, too.

Likes a white T shirt!

Cooncil tea bags in his Astro boots.
Lookalike Sheepy Mike, Taron Egerton out of the 'Kingsman' films, Scottish comedian Stuart Condy or Scottish rapper Loki (Darren McGarvey)
Battlecry Nothing so far
Claim To Fame

Played for his county (West Lothian) basketball team despite being about 5' 2"!

Misses the nearest game to Bonfire Night every year as his pet pooch Mason is scared of loud noises. Mason has his own earplugs.
