 Loan players who were brilliant
Topic Originator: OzPar  
Date:   Wed 17 Oct 22:17

This, in a way, is related to the feeder club thread. I was just thinking about the loan players that we have had over the years and how few or many actually turned out to be superb deals for us?

One obvious name would be Adam Hammill; more recently, Tom Beadling.

Who would you suggest?

Liam Horsted has one cracking game for us - then never did it again.

Hammill, Crawford, Scully & McGregor are all excellent shouts.

Hammill and McGregor are the two standouts for me. The majority of loans we have had haven't really brought much to the table. There has been some awful loans over the years

Alan mcgregor is easily the best loan player we’ve had. Not only for ability but for impact made. We would have been relegated if it weren’t for him.

....and Burchill at the other end. Those two defo kept us up.

Danny Murphy the wee left back we got from Motherwell did well for us i remember in an otherwise very forgetable period and poor side.

sure we were Mcgregors 3rd loan after couple of spells at St Johnstone.

Crawfords loan from hibs was pretty successful that we turned permanent on promotion back to the SPL as was.

Going back a few years, we got a keeper called Barclay from Celtic who had a really solid season for the Pars before being recalled to Parkhead.

Celtic released him soon after and I never understood why the club didn’t pursue an interest.

Stevie Crawford in 1999 was one of the best loan deals I can remember. Obviously, we signed him permanently and he was excellent for us.

As others have mentioned, McGregor and Hammill are obvious contenders.

I think we initially got Alex Burke on loan from St Mirren, in the McIntyre era. I thought he was an underrated player in our midfield, during his spell with us.

We seem to have had luck with loan keepers. Paul Gallacher & Allan McGregor spring to mind there. Ironically, I think we got Gallacher on loan because Murdoch was deemed not good enough (yet). Chris Smith also impressed whilst on loan, but we all know how that turned out... Scully was alright as well, but I feel he benefitted from Smith and Hrivnak being so fresh in fans’ memories and was made out to be better than he was. Once we couldn’t get him back, Murdoch was a big upgrade. People will disagree, but that’s just my opinion.

Haha, I was 10, sat right under the then location of the TV gantry in the main stand at that time.

I thought he was a loaner, must have been a short term contract.

Dave McLellar probably holds a unique record in Scottish Cup he played for different clubs in consecutive seasons that beat Rangers.
Hamilton and DAFC

I thought Stephen Glass was really good at us on loan.

Thought he was guff when he was made permanent though!

I really rated a guy we had on loan from Portsmouth in the Calderwood era; Michael Panopoulos. He didn’t play that often so didn’t make the impact of some others previously mentioned but looked a good player whenever I seen him play.

The mowhawk (also referred to as a mohican) is a hairstyle in which, in the most common variety, both sides of the head are shaven, leaving a strip of noticeably longer hair in the centre.
