Biography:
A member of the Distillery side that ‘won’ the 1886 Irish Cup Final. The Final, against Limavady, ended in disorder and the Irish FA announced that the cup and medals would be withheld. It was only after a legal action by Bob Baxter that the IFA relented and awarded each member of the team “a medal or its value”.
