Staff Biography

Harry Allan (Full back, 1897) – Henry Hogg Allan was born in Kingseat in 1872 and spent just 3 short months with Cowden after signing from the strong going Dunfermline Juniors club. At one time he also lived and worked in the now vanished local village of Lassodie. His nephew Jock Allan played for Hibs, East Fife and Bury and then in the USA. Harry Allan’s hard tackling and all round ability soon attracted admirers and Hearts moved in to obtain his services. After his abbreviated stay at North End Park, Harry Allan spent 6 years at Tynecastle and was capped by Scotland against Wales in 1902. In 1901, he was a member of the Hearts' side which won the Scottish Cup. Harry was also twice capped by the Scottish League. In 1903, Harry Allan was reputedly the first player to sign for the newly formed Methil senior club, East Fife and he skippered the new club in their first season. Later he emigrated to Canada and lived in Vancouver. That was where he died in 1965.
