Thomas Ferguson = Falkirk FC

I get a bit bored of 'alleged' reference books which contintue to state that Geordie Watson has made the most appearances for my beloved Falkirk FC [even though they cover their behinds with the boring [post war] bit]. In my humble opinion, if you want to be known as a source you ought research your stuff before proclaiming facts [however skewed]. To this point, I'd like to promote a too often forgotten chap from Longcroft who was almost omnipresent 'between the sticks' throughought an entire decade, and by this I don't mean ten years, I mean the twenties....

The above, except for League & Cup matches, is but a minimum, Tommy may have played more [but I doubt as many as 600!].

Apart from a little time with Bedlay Juniors before Falkirk FC snapped him up, Tommy played his entire club career at Falkirk, except for accepting the challenge of guesting with Third Lanark on their tour of Argentina/Uruguay in 1923 [sadly it is slightly difficult finding accurate details of those matches]. Thomas died in South Africa in June 1955, clearly a well travelled man.
