Biography


In his youth Tommy played for local sides St Mungos, Denny Boys Club and Dunipace Juniors before joining Hearts in August 1962 as a teenager. He made his debut towards the end of that season, and spent almost eight years at Tynecastle, finishing as runners-up in the League in 1965, and the Scottish Cup in 1968.

After an unsuccessful bid by Jerry Kerr to bring the winger to Tannadice in 1969, he arrived in April 1970 in a swap deal that took Wilson Wood to Hearts. He made his first appearance for United in August 1970 in a friendly against Newcastle United, and his competitive debut against Clyde three days later. For the next five seasons, he was a regular in the side and occasionally found the net, scoring his first goal in a Fairs Cup match against Sparta Prague. After the arrival of Jim McLean as manager, he was briefly listed for transfer in December 1972 but remained at Tannadice. Instrumental in United's run to their first ever Scottish Cup final in 1974, 'Spike' scored a last gasp equaliser at East End Park in the quarter finals, scoring three in total in the competition as he collected another runners-up medal after the defeat to Celtic at Hampden. He came back to haunt his old club Hearts in October 1974 when he hit his only professional hat-trick in a 5-0 win. A very influential player to the youngsters coming through, he was eventually replaced by the likes of Paul Sturrock and Graeme Payne.

In December 1975, he went part-time and was transferred to Morton in a swap deal for Alec Reid, with his new club also received a fee of £10,000. After just one season with the Greenock side, he moved to Falkirk, and after retiring in 1978 he went into coaching at Cowdenbeath, later emigrating to Australia.
