Staff Biography

Rab Walls (Centre Forward, 1937-45) - Rab Walls joined Hearts after stints with Leith Emmett and Wemyss Athletic. 2 seasons at Tynecastle saw Rab fail to establish himself in the side. Rab then moved to St Bernard's where he was a prolific marksman and then he scored goals for Hibs as they won the 2nd Division title. He joined Cowdenbeath in 1937 after a season with Aldershot and became the idol of the local fans with some extraordinary scoring feats. He was renowned for his powerful shooting which several times knocked out opponents unlucky enough to get in the way. 34 league goals in 1937/38 were followed by a club record of 54 league goals in Cowden's runaway Division 2 championship success in 1938/39. Rab's tally of 54 league goals has only been bettered once in Scottish football history. He scored 15 goals in 15 games in the wartime league before Cowden closed down in February 1940. Rab scored 103 league goals in 79 games for Cowden with 15 hat-tricks or better (including 6 goals in a match v Stenhousemuir). He played one final game for Cowden at the age of 37 in 1945.
