Kilwinning: Morton’s author searches for footballing family


A football historian currently working on his new book is following someone who might have more information on the two Kilwinning players who played for Greenock Morton in the 1920s. I’m trying.

Graeme Ross has written several books on the club and written to commemorate Morton’s 100th anniversary of his historic victory over Rangers to win the Scottish Cup in 1922.

He told the Herald: “The Morton squad included two players, Robert Brown and James McMin, who started their careers with Kilwinning Rangers. I believe they were both born in Kilwinning-Brown around 1888. And 1900-01 McMin.

“Brown won the Junior Cup in 1909 and played for Kilwinning, who took second place the following year. He then signed with the Rangers and joined Morton in 1919.

“James McMin joined Morton from Kilwinning in 1921 and then played on air. If a relative of a player wants to contact me with information on the two men.

Graeme has already discovered that Robert Brown was born on October 1, 1888 at Union Playskill Winning and died in February 1962. He lived at Woodwind Cottage Kilwinning and had three children, so he could have grandchildren.

He continued. “I’m pretty sure James McMin was born in (Townhead) Station Street Kilwinning in 1901 and died in Kilwinning in 1959.”
