Name: Hewitt, Michael Andrew 
DoB: 14/07/1949, Busby

Signed from Netherlee Church, Michael Hewitt was thrust into first team action just a couple of months after turning eighteen. Injuries had seen first choice keeper John Taylor taken off at half time in a League Cup tie with bruised ribs, and when Gordon Wilson was taken off after just ten minutes of the next match to have stitches put into a hand injury, the Match Committee looked to the Hampden XI and Michael duly got his chance. With nine appearances in 1968/69, it was not until season 1969/70 that he established himself as the first choice, making 30 appearances in the league.

This earned him a move to Dundee, where he remained for five seasons, before moving to Tampa Bay Rowdies in the United States, winning the NASL Championship. From there he moved to San Jose Earthquakes where he played for six years, ending his playing career in Montreal playing for the wonderfully named Montreal Manic. Remaining in the USA, he worked in real estate as well as goalkeeping coaching with the Arizona Soccer Club.
