Dunfermline Athletic

Former player hits 90!

Friday, 26th Feb 2021

Dunfermline Athletic are delighted to congratulate Jim Ross on the occasion of his 90th Birthday.

A tall, strong inside-left, Jim Ross was signed for Dunfermline Athletic in February 1954 from St Andrews United by Bobby Ancell, the Pars Manager. Jim cost the Pars £80 and the promise of a fund-raiser at St Andrews which was played on 29 April 1954.

He even attended his own wedding in September 1954 with a cut eye, courtesy of a reserve game for Dunfermline against Dundee. Jim went on to play for Cowdenbeath. A plasterer to trade, Jim preferred to limit his chances in football by remaining part-time. In later life he ran a cafe in Kirkcaldy.

Anyone who has family members or friends who might benefit from weekly memory group meetings in Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes, based around an interest in sport, should contact Gary Waddell, the Co-ordinator for The Sporting Memories Foundation Scotland on 07941 123278
