Pen Pic - William McAulay - Falkirk FC - 1907

Continuing the Falkirk Herald's "Prominent Players" series of 1907 this time it is William McAulay Falkirk's Inside-Left for the 1906/07 season.

By the time William joined he was already a veteran of top flight football, both North & South of the Border, but he was by no means past it.

After a season with Falkirk he moved to Hibernian before winding his career down at Alloa.
