MENZIES, Alex (1910)


Overview
A native of Blantyre, having been born there on 25th November 1882, the son of a local blacksmith.
 
With Blantyre Victoria in 1901 he was the preferred centre forward when the Lanarkshire Junior League met the Irish League in 1902 and he was signed by Heart of Midlothian in December of that year.  He then had a loan spell with Motherwell in 1903 before joining Arthurlie in August 1904.
 
May 1905 meant a return to Tynecastle Park for a longer period until Manchester United paid £500 for him in November 1906. He had excellent reports following his United debut but failed to keep up the good work and just over two years later he moved on to Luton Town.
 
He came back to Scotland where Dundee put him on their payroll and it was from Dens Park that he came to Douglas Park to-wards the end of the 1909-10 season. He was a centre forward principally but was also a more than useful winger while in Edinburgh where he had the legendary Bobby Walker as his inside forward.
 
It was at that time that he was picked to play against England in 1906. He had also a Scottish Cup Winners medal to his name that year.
 
5’10” and 11sts 10lbs.

Debut on 12th March 1910 in a Scottish League match at home to Falkirk.
