About this memory

Born in the West Lothian village of Carriden, Bo’ness, Munro began his career with Bo’ness F.C., before reverting to junior football with Champfleurie and Newtongrange Star. He returned to league football when signed by Hearts in April 1932 and had gradually worked his way into the first team by 1934, appearing mainly as a left-winger. He switched to the right flank from 1934-35 and that season helped Hearts to the Scottish Cup semi-finals, playing in both games as double-winning Rangers proved too strong in a replay at Hampden Park.
