Staff Biography

Jock MacKenzie (Left back, 1910-16) - Jock Mackenzie was born on New Year’s Day 1882 near Boat of Garten. He was to become the first ‘Highlander’ to sign for Cowdenbeath. Up north, he had played for Elgin City and Forres Mechanics. He had originally come south to play for Rangers aged 26 in 1908 and featured regularly in the Ibrox 1st XI in 1909/10. His signing was therefore a bit of a coup for Cowden in 1910. Jock proved to be a valiant defender in his days at North End Park and captained Cowdenbeath to two 2nd Division championship successes. He worked as a butcher in Cowdenbeath for DCI and then on his own account. He also had a tendency to fall foul of referees – either via physical aggression or the verbal sort. He picked up a number of suspensions but the Cowdenbeath crowd never had any great liking for shrinking violets in the first place. His playing days at Cowdenbeath ended in 1916 when he enlisted in the Black Watch. He later lived in Clydebank.
