Name: Ian Maxwell
Current Club: Partick Thistle
Saints Career: Ian signed for Saints un the summer of 2005 and, despite not featuring much in the first half of the season, was an important part of the side that won the double. First season in the SPL was marred by injury, while he missed the first half of the second with more problems. When he came back he turned into a goal machine, scoring a fluke against Hibs and a double against Motherwell! Sadly it wasn't enough to keep him at the club and he left in the summer of 2008.
Post Saints Career: After his decent performances for us in the SPL, he was always going to be in demand in the SFL and he was quickly snapped up by Partick Thistle. He had some decent seasons there, scoring fair number of goals, and in 2010 was appointed player/assistant manager to Ian McCall. When McCall was sacked a year later, Maxi became general manager at Firhill.
