Can somebody please tell me his debut match for Morton in 1900/01 season? His 2 matches for Hearts 1903/04? Did he play for Paisley Academicals later?

Herbert Craik had played a friendly for Morton and was then signed. Days after he was listed in the Morton side selected to play Kilmarnock on 29 December 1900. However, newspaper match reports show his place was taken by Colligan. He did finally make his league debut at left half on 5 January 1901 in an away match at Meadowside - Partick Thistle 1 Morton 2.

According to the excellent London Hearts website Herbert Craik played three League matches for Hearts in the 1904/05 season. They were:

Monday 26 September 1904 Rangers 1 Hearts 1

Saturday 29 October 1904 Hibernian 3 Hearts 0

Saturday 5 November 1904 Hearts 0 Rangers 5
