Jimmy Lumsden is best remembered by modern day Leeds fans as the
screaming second-in-command who stood beside Eddie Gray in those
dark Division 2 days, but he had spent 6 years with the club in the
late 1960s, captaining the reserves before moving on to a more
active playing career in Scotland. Lumsden followed Eddie Gray in
management to Rochdale and linked up with another Leeds old boy -
Joe Jordan - at Bristol City.
Frank Coughlan says: Maybe i'm wrong, but didn't Jimmy play in
the league of Ireland with Cork Hiberians in and around the
mid-'70s? Jabba says: you're right, he had a brief spell at Cork
Hibernians in 1973 between his time with St Mirren and his return
cozi says: Jimmy coached us at Fairburn Athletic under 16's! for
a few months!
Derry Barrett says: I saw Jimmy Lumsden play on numerous
occasions with Cork Hibernians, most notably in a pre-season
friendly against the then FA cup holders Sunderland and score the
winner direct from a free kick.
