Apologies - I meant to reply to this.
I doubt its the same player - I have no note of Torbet playing in the US. His career is fairly well covered above, with the exception of a single game for Alloa between his free from Ayr and his game for Leith.
He was working for Thornliebank Youth Club during the war.
I have a suspicion he may have joined Hearts as trainer - see http://scottishleague.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=852
- I'd love to have this confirmed.
Re discrepancies in his Thistle stats - his appearances and goals totals in the book contain first team friendlies.
