Staff Biography

Andy Kinnell (Centre half, 1964-72) – Cowdenbeath born and bred and the brother of George Kinnell (Aberdeen/Stoke/Sunderland), Andy started out with Cowdenbeath Royals and was signed by Cowden in 1964. He was soon in the Cowden side aged just 17. He spent 8 splendid years at Central Park. Originally a wing-half, he moved into the centre half berth early in his career and never looked back. He had impeccable timing both in the air and on the ground. Never flustered, Andy was a class player who could mix it with the best of them when necessary. He was Cowden’s player of the year in 1968 and then led Cowden to promotion in 1970 as well as during their year in the top flight plus in the League Cup semi final v Rangers. In 1972, he realised his ambition to go full-time when Willie Ormond signed him for St Johnstone for 8,000. He went on to captain Saints in the Premier League and made 94 appearances for the Muirton men. In 1976, Andy hung up his boots at the age of barely 30. Andy still lives in Cowdenbeath.
