WILLIAMWOOD old boy David Weatherston was almost going back to his studies (writes David Oliver) when he found himself out of football this summer.
However a move to Falkirk and the option to stay in full-time employment in the game arrived in the nick of time for the ex-Busby and Queen’s Park striker who’d been seeking a club since his deal at Queen of the South expired.
“I was a day away from joining Brechin and going part-time. It the chance to go full-time that made the decision for me,” he told Extrasport.
“I was meant to phone Brechin and Arbroath on the Tuesday night and I found out about this potential move to Falkirk on the same day, so it was close.
“I have a degree from Strathclyde University so maybe I would go and do more studying with that, or get a job with it - I don’t know, but the decision to stay in full-time football was important.
“I am only 24 and don’t want to go part-time. Full-time isn’t as much money as there once was but full-time football is where you’ll improve.
“I just want to score goals”.
