Staff Biography

Alex Hamill (Outside right, 1930-35) - The Dumbarton born Alex Hamill came to Cowdenbeath from Renton Thistle and faced the unenviable task of replacing the popular Willie Pullar. Hamill was a different style of player to Pullar - a barnstorming, direct type of raider as opposed to the trickery of Pullar. However, Alex proved to be a capable replacement and a valuable element of a fine forward line. Alex played 151 League games for 'the Miners' in which he scored a creditable 36 goals. In 1935, he refused to resign and Cowdenbeath, on the verge of bankruptcy, accepted a bid of only 175 for Hamill's services from Blackburn Rovers. Alex Hamill was at Ewood Park for 2 seasons but Blackburn Rovers were on the slide and were relegated to Division 2. Alex then represented both Barnsley and Carlisle United before retiring at the start of the War. After his playing days were over, he was on the committee of Dunnikier Colliery Juniors and became chief scout at Raith Rovers, a position he was to hold for 25 years until 1969.
