Staff Biography

Jim Brown (Centre half, 1904-07) - Jim Brown was born in West Calder and played with Champfleurie (Linlithgow) and Bo'ness Our Boys before joining Rangers. Opportunities at Ibrox were limited as they were with his next club, Hearts. It was at St Bernards that Jim began to see his career make headway. Brown was signed by Cowdenbeath at the start of season 1904/05. He proved to be an able centre-half and was soon appointed club captain. In 1907 Dunfermline managed to persuade Jim to transfer his allegiance to East End Park. 2 years' later, the experienced Brown moved on again to join Lochgelly United. Jim captained Lochgelly United in their first ever Scottish League game (v Cowden in August 1914), as he had both Cowdenbeath and Dunfermline (also v Cowden) - a unique hat-trick. During the War, he served in the Royal Scots and later played for Kelty Rangers. After Jim’s retirement, he became the local High Chief Ruler of the Rechabites. In 1955, Jim Brown's death was mourned by the West Fife football community.
