Govan, John

Position :- Right-back
Signed From :- Larkhall Thistle
Sold To :- Ayr United

Like James Main and Neil Girdwood before him was a really great right-back.

Jock was discovered by legendary Hibernian scout David Wyper, nicknamed "Window Wyper".

He formed a solid partnership with David Shaw which helped Hibs win the League in 1948. Later he paired with Hugh Howie.

Wrote briefly for the 'Daily Express' before returning to be a mining engineer. (edited by moderator)
