284 appearances/55 goals

If people saw Tommy Bryceland play in yellow and green, they remembered it.

The well-liked Scotsman average a goal every other game for St Mirren – plus a Scottish Cup winners medal – before joining Norwich in 1962, beginning a seven-year stint that ended in his City Hall of Fame induction.
