Neil McBain, the Everton and Scottish international half-back, was yesterday signed by St. Johnstone. The Muirton Park management have been angling after the ex-Ayr United player for some time and his inclusion in next season’s team ought to strengthen the half-back line considerably.
McBain came first into prominence with Ayr United and landed at Everton after a spell with Manchester United. A stylish half-back, he was “capped” against England in 1922, against Ireland in 1923, and against Wales in 1924.
