After a disappointing season with St Johnstone, David Weatherston has just left McDiarmid Park to sign for Queen of the South in late August 2008. Looking back on his three seasons at Palmerston, David talks about working with Gordon Chisholm, being reunited with Kenny Brannigan and joining the previous season’s Scottish Cup finalists.
David discusses the highs and lows of his time at the Doonhamers from scoring a brace against Partick Thistle on his 23rd birthday and netting his first (and only) professional hat-trick, to his difficulty in breaking into starting XI at the expense of the Cup side’s heroes.
He goes into depth about Gordon Chisholm’s surprise defection to Dundee, how he almost reverted to an orthodox striker, and his ongoing battle with nerves and anxiety. David concludes with his frustrating departure from the club shortly after Gus MacPherson’s appointment as manager.
As with other episodes, this is brilliant fun and well worth your time.
