Does anyone know where Willie Irvine was between playing a handful of games for Dunfermline in 1987 & turning out for Aidrie in 1989?

http://www.neilbrown.newcastlefans.com/ has him there too, only misspelt as Didar. It should be FK Vidar incidentally - SK Vidar is an athletics club.

Is this the Willie Irvine who has taken over as manager of Pollok?

If this is the same man then this is taken from the Pollok web site and fills in the blanks............

NEW MANAGER APPOINTED

Even with messageboards and newpaper columns casting predictions left right and centre, perhaps few would have predicted the identity of Pollok's new manager. The successful candidate is WILLIE IRVINE, a 46-year-old with considerable playing experience at both Junior and Senior level as well as managerial experience in the juniors dating back to 2002. Willie comes to Lok having been manager of Norwegian lower league outfit Lillesand for the 2008 and 2009 seasons, though latterly concentrated on the club's youth academy, and prior to that was in charge of Sauchie Juniors and Bo'ness United. He also worked as a youth coach at Falkirk. As a player, Willie was a very highly regarded striker, and stepped up to senior level from Dunipace Juveniles in 1982, signing for Stirling Albion. He had a brief spell in the Premier League in the mid 80s with both Hibs and Dunfermline but played most of his career in the lower divisions.

For those interested, his career in chronological order is: Dunipace Juveniles, Stirling Albion, Hibernian, Dunfermline Athletic, Vidar, Airdrieonians, Albion Rovers, Meadowbank Thistle, Berwick Rangers, Alloa Athletic, Stenhousemuir, Sauchie (Player/Manager), Camelon, Bo'ness United (Player/Manager), Craigroyston, Sauchie, Lillesand (Manager).

I remember him scoring a few as a young Meadowbank supporter.
He scored five goals for Stirling Albion in their 20-0 win over Selkirk in 1984, including the first and twentieth goals.

Not to be confused with the other ex-Hibs Willie Irvine who became a prison guard and got taken hostage by a prisoner.
