    Can remember when we brought in Paul Wright from Dundee. I was absolutely delighted about that. Real shame that we couldn't have held onto Keith Wright at the same time, who'd had a good season for us all things considered.

    Went on to do alright for Aberdeen and Kilmarnock.

    (I'm gonnae regret this....)

    We didn't sign Paul Wright from Dundee.

    We signed KEITH Wright from Dundee.

    PAUL Wright came to us from QPR. Moved on to St Johnstone, then Killie. he was at Aberdeen before he was at QPR.

    Poor lad ended up at Larkhall Thistle, where he played no games and (unsurprisingly) scored no goals, giving himself a 100% scoring record (or possibly a 0% scoring record, depending on how you want to look at it.)

    He was also quite ugly.

    Easily done, mate.

    Believe it or not, there are quite a few people who get confused between Enoch Showunmi and his close namesake Thomas Sowunmi.

    Of course no one with any intelligence would make that mistake once it had been pointed out to them.

    Unless they were being deliberately irritating...

    Jeez, that's a wright eye-opener. I didn't think any of us knew that - including the poster you replied to

    Thnaks for putting us all straight on that one.

    Can you now nail the mystery of the Showunmi - or is that Sowunmi - brothers? I wish the papers would spell his name right

    Are you sure about this?

    I remember the press conference to announce his signing when he was flanked by then manager Willie Miller and Chairman Dougie Donnelly.

    And we've not had many better right backs at the club since his son, also Willie, left (to become a gardener, I believe). Only other manager/player combination we had from a single family that I can think of was Jock Stein and his son Colin, but there may be more.

    It was exciting times. The following season we signed Chris Jackson and they formed a JAW partnership.

    Then the following season John O'Neil and some wee winger indirectly from chelsea nicknamed mars bar arrived that gave us real attacking zonal threat...

    It was quite an exciting team built by Willie Miller despite having to shaft his assistant Kevin McCloud.

    Whatever happened to Jay Shields? He was really wee but completely ferocious! I remember him playing fullback against one of the old firm and absolutely savaging anyone who had the temerity to have the ball in his vicinity. I always felt sorry for him, that his height counted against him.

    Sounds as bad as when our manager Patrick Duffy signed Chic Young to play in the middle of the park, even though he was a bit past it at that stage, and paid 400k for Joan Crawford, then added Paddy Power to the line up, you'd have put money on him to do well too...

    You could throw Pauline Tosh in the mix.

    Now there's some names to conjur with
    Everyone of them had the potential as youngsters to be top class players

    Allison,Grant and Nelson scored goals but generally flattered to deceive
    John Frye I always felt "suffered " like Jim Souness and John Munro through being at ER at the same time as Gordon Smith - did well for St Mirren.
    Malcolm " have ball will travel" Bogie was the subject of one of the best newspaper lines " .....Bogie's control of the ball at pace was such that on many an occasion if they had opened the Dunbar end gate he would have run right out still with the ball"
    Remember seeing him "weaving his magic" for S & N in the old "Welfare League"

    Thanks for that

    Nice to see Enoch Showunmi on the scoresheet for Tranmere last night, real shame that he never set the heather alight during his short spell here.

    colin grant - alive and well and living in Ellon. met him a few times through local golf. still speaks fondly of his time at easter road. I remember him scoring winner in East Germany against Lokomotiv Leipzig in the Fairs cup around 1968-ish (at least I think I do !)

    I'd forgotten about Johnny Grant-I remember he destroyed Falkirk at Brockville one New Year-he was smaller than the corner flag.

    Fox scored a great goal at Tynie-surprised he didn't do more in the game.

    A real disappointment was John Brogan who was a great goal scorer everywhere but us.

    Scott Bannerman had to be one of the ****test players we ever had....im he even got a medal when we won the first division. Theres a great clip of him getting his medal and Yogi saying "How did you get one"

    He showed promise up at Palmerston with that goal against Queen of the South but never really got going after that. Shame.

    Am I missing something here?

    Enoch Showunmi NEVER played for hibs!

    Thomas Sowunmi was the one that played for hibs, scoring in the scottish cup game against QOS!

    another player that never made it, Ross Campbell, scored for Forfar on tuesday night1

    One that I remember having high hopes for was Pat Carroll who made his debut for us when aged c. 16/17 in the mid 70's.

    I recall that just before he joined us he was a stand out in midfield for a Scottish Schoolboys team that beat their English counterparts at Wembley in a match that was televised live on a Saturday afternoon.

    All the pundits were raving about his performance (including Jackie Charlton iirc).

    Unfortunately when he made his first team debut he appeared to take stage fright, though he we was not helped by a vociferous mob of morons on the home terracing slagging him off, including catcalls that he needed his nappy changed

    IMO that destroyed any self confidence he had and he eventually moved on to Raith and then Falkirk.
