Staff Biography

Willie Pullar (Outside Right, 1921-30) - Willie Pullar learned the arts of football whilst serving in the trenches in the 1st World War. He came to Cowdenbeath in December 1921 and was a fixture at outside-right for 9 years at Central Park. Willie displayed his wonderful wing trickery in 294 League games for ‘the Miners’ - a Cowdenbeath appearance record that stood until the 1980’s. Pullar's wizardry made him tremendously popular with the fans. He was another Cowdenbeath player who was on the verge of international recognition, being named as a reserve when Scotland played Wales in 1927. Willie was immortalised in song by Robert MacLeod (the Miners’ Poet) who penned the ditty 'Willie Pullar wi' the little twinklin' feet' (sung to the tune of 'Barney Google') as a tribute to 'artful Willie o' the Cowdenbeath FC'. In 1930, Willie Pullar moved on to play for Leith Athletic and Leith enjoyed the spectacle of his wing play. A brief spell with Raith Rovers followed before the 'little twinklin' feet' twinkled no more.
