An industrious attacking winger who joined Hibernian from Portobello Renton at the start of the 1936/37 season, Tommy Mclntyre was but one of many players who had their professional careers seriously curtailed by the outbreak of the Second World War.

Just weeks before Britain declared war on Germany in 1939, Mclntyre was selected to travel to the United States and Canada as part of the Scotland touring party. Playing in several of the dozen or so games during the trip his name is not listed in the record books as the matches were listed as 'unofficial tour games.'
Called up to the armed forces within weeks of the outbreak of war, and still registered as a signed Hibs player, Mclntyre would make only two appearances for the club during the years of conflict both in season 1944-45.
On his demob from the forces he returned to Easter Road only to find Gordon Smith firmly established in the right wing position, and he was transferred to Kilmarnock shortly after.
