Notes: James "Jimmy" McMenemy (1880-1965) accomplished a prolific football career that spanned over twenty years with Celtic F.C. (1902-1920) and Partick Thistle F.C. (1920-23), in which he made 515 appearances, scored 168 goals, and amassed numerous victories and honours. During his time with Celtic F.C., McMenemy was part of the legendary squad that won the 1904 Scottish Cup Final by defeating the Rangers 3-2 (after being down 2-0). In addition, he was a member of the Celtic squad which achieved the impressive performance of winning five consecutive Scottish League championships (between 1905-6 and 1909-10 seasons), and four during the 1914-18 war. Jimmy went on to win an additional five Scottish Cup medals (1907; 1908; 1911; 1912; 1914) before leaving Celtic Park and later collecting another with Partick Thistle in 1921, which remains the club's one and only Scottish Cup victory. McMenemy scored five goals for the Scotland national team, thus earning the nickname "Napoleon," while also accumulating seven consecutive Glasgow Charity Cup successes (from 1911-12 till 1917-18), as well as many Glasgow Cup honours.
