And, as Davie was brought up a Buddies fan, JOHN WILLIAMS from Paisley wonders who were his all-time favourite Saints.

I was fortunate enough to get to train with my local team as a teenager, and watched them lift the Scottish Cup in 1959.

They beat Celtic 4-0 in the semi-final, then Aberdeen 3-1 at Hampden. Those guys will forever be my Saints heroes.
