Internationalists

Over the years St. Mirren have had 40 players capped at full international level.

 

28 of them for Scotland,  two each for Iceland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland and one player has represented the teams of Wales, Canada, Cyprus, Estonia, Haiti and New Zealand.

The first Saints players capped were Andrew Brown and James 'Daddy' Dunlop who represented Scotland against Wales on the 22nd March 1890.
 
Most capped are Billy Thomson and Iain Munro with seven caps each for Scotland whilst Jamie McGrath is the most capped 'foreign' player with six caps for the Republic of Ireland.


The most capped Scottish player to play for the Saints is Roy Aitken who gained 57 caps during his career, although only one of those was whilst at Love Street.
The most capped player ever to wear the stripes is Mo Camara, who won 79 caps for Guinea prior to signing for Saints.
The most capped former Saint is Sander Puri who has played for Estonia 89 times, although only one was as a Saint.


Only one St. Mirren player has had the honour of captaining Scotland and that was back in 1905 when Thomas Jackson skippered the team against Wales in Wrexham.
Icelander Therolf Beck had the honour of captaining his country against Finland in August 1964.

Two players have scored for Scotland. Bobby Rankin with two goals leads the way from Tommy Gemmell with one.

Alex Greive and Therolf Beck have both scored twice for their countries and Duckens Nazon has scored once for His.
