First 100k Scot To An English Club?

Post by Fatkev » Thu Jan 18, 2007 4:18 pm

OK Guys, first post here, so I hope you can help...

Who was the first Scottish player to be transferred from a Scottish club to an English club for 100k or over?

I've searched the electrical interwebnet for the answer but I must be rubbish at choosing the right search-terms, or perhaps the info is not available.

Cheers in advance.

Hi there and welcome to the forum. Transfer fees aren't always recorded accurately but having had a quick trawl through the records I think the surprising answer is that it was Tommy Craig when he moved from Aberdeen to Sheffield Wednesday for £100,000 in 1969 when still a teenager.

Thanks for that!

Certainly earlier than the Davie Hay suggestion I got from somewhere else...knew that couldn't be right. :wink:

If anyone else can come up with an earlier 100k transfer, don't be shy!!
