One-game wonder who must have been living out of a suitcase for most of the time. John (or Jack as he is in some records) Finlay moved south of the border to New Brighton FC, but only spent 3 months there before moving to Leeds in a £6,000 that brought Bill Heggie to Elland Road. Since he never played for the first team and Finlay only managed the single game, this must rank as one of the less successful transfer deals in the history of the club. He moved on to Southern League outfit Yeovil before returning to league football for a year with Walsall.
