Jimmy Blair (Footballer Born 1888)
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James "Jimmy" Blair (11 May 1888 - 28 February 1964) was a Scottish international footballer, probably most well known for playing in the 1925 FA Cup Final for Cardiff City. Blair had played for Scottish amateur sides Bonnybridge Thistle and Ashfield before being signed by Clyde. He spent only one year at the club after attracting interest from several clubs around Britain but it was Sheffield Wednesday who managed to sign him in 1914 for a fee of 2,000. Unfortunately he struggled to ever make a big impact on the team due to various different events. Soon after joining the club he was involved in a motorcycle crash that kept him out of the team for a long period and he had made just twenty appearances following his recovery when the Football League was suspended due to the outbreak of World War I.
