Career

Eadie played as a Striker and spent the longest part of his playing career with Clydebank, hitting 149 goals on his 276 league games; he is the club's all-time leading scorer. Eadie won the 'Daily Record Golden Boot' in 1991, clinching it on the final day of the season with 4 second half strikes in a 7-1 victory over Partick Thistle at New Kilbowie Park [1] which saw him pip Gordon Dalziel and finish the season with 30 goals. Eadie was inducted into the Clydebank Hall of Fame alongside Jim Fallon, Jim Gallacher and Davie Cooper.

Included amongst his time at Queen of the South, Eadie was joint manager along with George Rowe. The management of the pair helped turn round a difficult first season, thanks in large part to the performances of then youngsters Jamie McAllister and David Lilley.
