Staff Biography

John Dickson (Inside right, 1968-72) – Joined Don Revie’s Leeds as a Kirkcaldy schoolboy but he couldn’t settle down south. Leeds’ loss was Cowden’s gain and he joined Cowden after only a brief spell with Lochore Welfare (he scored 8 goals in his first 3 junior matches for the Welfare). John was a gifted player. Sometimes a prima donna but always liable to bring the house down with his supreme trickery and skill. 1969/70 saw him at his peak as Scotland’s leading goalscorer with 31 League goals as promotion was won. 1972 saw him tempted away to St Mirren and later he played for Ayr United. Subsequently, he managed Elgin City and Dundonald Bluebell. There was also a short spell playing for East Fife. Over the years he became a deeper lying player, more a creator of goals than in his Cowden heyday. He was manager of BRAG Ltd for a time outside football. He died aged just 49 in 1998 in Kirkcaldy but he lives on in our hearts and minds. He scored 98 League goals in his career – 61 of them for the Miners.
