Staff Biography

Davie Ross (Outside left, 1969-76) – Davie Ross was playing with his local club Kennoway United when he scored when as trialist for Forfar Athletic. Forfar though couldn’t afford to pay him a signing on fee and once Jock Gilliard slipped him 200, Davie was happy to join Cowdenbeath. Davie made a huge impact in his first season as Cowden shocked Scottish football and strode to promotion. A traditional outside left, Davie was seen as Cowden’s answer to George Best and was very much a local hero. He starred again in Division 1 and he was to go on to score 48 goals in 223 games for Cowdenbeath. His loyalty to the club was also remarkable and he stayed with Cowden for 7 years until he was transferred to St Johnstone in 1976. He was the last of the 1970 side to depart Central Park. At St Johnstone he was player of the year in his second season. Afterwards he belatedly signed for Forfar before retiring. Davie still keeps his old strip and training gear to hand just in case Cowden need him again.
