Saturday's match at home to St Mirren brought up two records for Accies.
Appearance wise Stephen Hendrie, 19, made his 100th first team appearance for us, becoming the 2nd youngest player to achieve 100 appearances for Accies, the youngest being James McCarthy set in 2009 (he went on to make 110 apps before being transferred to Wigan aged 18). Congratulations to Stephen, who also picked up his 3rd u21 cap for Scotland earlier in the week.
Goals wise, Tony Andreu's (above with Jason Scotland) opening goal was his 9th in the league this season (and 10th overall this term), and, still in November, he has already set a new post war top flight record for us for league goals in a top flight season. The record was held by Simon Mensing with 8 Premier goals in 2009-10; and Davie Devlin (7 in 1946-47) and Stan Anderson (7 in 1965-66). The club record for top flight league goals in a season is all time club record scorer Davie Wilson with 35 in 1936-37.
Well done to #TonyAndreu22 for his achievement to date. With Mickael Antoine Curier and Ali Crawford both regularly amongst the goals this term too, they may well pass Simon Mensing's previous record as well.
