Staff Biography

Jim ‘Gunner’ Liddle (Centre forward, 1978-83, 1986) – Signed from Whitehill Welfare in 1978, Jim gradually established himself in the Cowden line up in the centre-forward jersey. He got better and better as the seasons went by and was absolutely tremendous in the ill-fated 1980/81 season. Jimmy scored 18 goals in that season which should have culminated in promotion but the prize was lost on the last day of the season despite Jim’s prodigious efforts. Big, strong and good in the air, Gunner also had a lethal shot and was an ideal centre. In January 1983, an offer from Hibs was turned down but then Forfar secured his services for a 15,000 fee. Jim became a hero too at Station Park where he banged in the goals with aplomb. In 1984, Forfar won the 2nd Division with Liddle scoring 22 League goals and being named Player of the Year in Division 2. He later played for Hamilton in the Premier League and then Meadowbank for a club record fee. After a 2 game loan spell at Cowdenbeath, he then played in the Belgian lower leagues for Lorrain Alton.
