Biography

McFarlane was signed from Partick Thistle in mid December 1923, having previously played for Queen's Park. and we beat off competition from several other clubs to secure his signing. He immediately slotted into the centre forward position where he continued as the main man upfront until early on in the 1925 season when injuries kept him from appearing reguarly for several months and upon his return to fitness, Dundee Utd secured his services in mid January.

After a brief spell at Tannadice, McFarlane returned to the club early on during the 1926-27 season and he featured reguarly for several months after his return but dropped out the team early on in 1927 and left the club at the end of the season and retired from playing. The following year, he stood for election to the clubs committee.
