 Drew Busby
Topic Originator: Parboiled  
Date:   Sat 2 Jul 16:13

Passed away aged 74.

Popular Hearts striker in the 70’s he started his senior career with Third Lanark and scored their final goal when they went bust

After a while in Junior football he signed for Airdrie and formed a potent partnership with the wily Drew Jarvie before transferring to Hearts.
After six years there he spent time with Toronto, Barrow, Morton and QOS.

His friends have described him as a quiet self effacing character. That would off the pitch, he was anything but on it!

Described by Pat Stanton as the hardest character he came across on a football pitch. It seems remarkable that he was kicking around in junior football for a few years before Airdrie signed him, for he made an immediate impact when he linked up with Drew Jarvie. Busby was always keen to shoot for goal. I saw him belt in two goals from 25 yards within minutes of each other against Celtic at Tynecastle.
