Five of the biggest names in the history of St Johnstone Football Club have become the first inductees into its Hall of Fame.
Fans voted in their hundreds to select the stars of the past most deserving of being honoured at a sell-out Perth Concert Hall dinner.
Winger Joe Carr, who played for the club in the fifties, was inducted alongside sixties duo Willie Coburn and Henry Hall, all-time record goalscorer John Brogan and prolific forward Roddy Grant.
For many Saints fans Hall remains a legendary player and is still the club’s third-top scorer of all time, with 114 goals from 253 appearances.
He became Saints’ record signing when he joined from Stirling Albion for £15,000 and went on to prove himself time and again at the top level, scoring in some of the side’s biggest matches under then manager Willie Ormond.
Many of the quintet retain strong links to the club, in particular Grant, who is now associate director at McDiarmid Park.
Saints chairman Steve Brown said: “The supporters really embraced the concept and that was underlined by the votes which came in from the fans and the emotional reception the players received.
“Unfortunately Joe Carr has been ill and couldn’t make it but the other four players were able to join us for their big night.
“A St Johnstone Hall of Fame was long overdue and further players will be honoured in the years to come.”
The stars of the past were joined on the night by manager Tommy Wright and the current squad and members of Willie Ormond’s 1969 League Cup final team.
