Biography

Tam began his football career with Grangemouth Boys Club before joining his home town club Falkirk's youth programme in 2000. He made his debut at age 18 against Dundee United in July 2006 and very quickly became a mainstay for The Bairns at full back. His form earned him caps for Scotland at U19 and U21 level. He played for four seasons in the top flight for Falkirk before their relegation in 2004 and two seasons later he left at the end of his contract to join St Johnstone.

At McDiarmid Park, Tam was hampered by injury throughout most of his time with the Saints, but despite that made over 120 appearances, including several in the Europa League during the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons, although he missed out on the clubs Scottish Cup win in May 2014. A contract extension in 2015 saw him remain there for a further two seasons, before he left the club.

In June 2017, Tam joined United on a two year deal, but just six games into the new campaign, a torn groin muscle in the Betfred cup tie with Dundee saw him ruled out of action for nearly two months. He returned at the end of October, and featured regularly at full-back and the centre of defence as United qualified for a Play-off spot.

Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Tam was born on this date in Falkirk.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Tam began his football career with Grangemouth Boys Club before joining his home town club Falkirk's youth programme in 2000. He made his debut at age 18 against Dundee United in July 2006 and very quickly became a mainstay for The Bairns at full back. His form earned him caps for Scotland at U19 and U21 level. He played for four seasons in the top flight for Falkirk before their relegation in 2004 and two seasons later he left at the end of his contract to join St Johnstone.

  • United commenced their 2017/18 campaign with a home game in the Betfred Cup against Raith Rovers. The team contained six players making their debuts for United, with four further new players on the bench. Indeed, of the starting eleven only William Edjenguele and Mark Durnan started Dundee United’s previous competitive fixture in Hamilton only seven weeks earlier.

  • Last Appearance - QOS 3 - 0 Dundee United

    United’s recent good form came to an abrupt end with a desperate performance and a 3-0 defeat against Queen of the South at Palmerston. As bad as the scoreline was, it could have been even worse for a team which had actually looked a lot more solid at the back in previous weeks.
