Bob Brown (footballer born 1870)
Bob left his local club to travel to England to play for Sheffield Wednesday before the club gained admission to the Football League in 1892, making a name for himself when scoring in a 4-1 defeat of League side Bolton Wanderers in the F A cup earlier that year. He went on to make forty-five appearances in Wednesday's first two League seasons and after a brief spell back in his native Scotland with Third Lanark, he then joined Bolton Wanderers in 1895, making one hundred and twenty-one appearances, ninety-four of them in the top flight. Brown also briefly had a loan spell at Burnley in 1896, making four appearances but was unable to save them from relegation. He retired in 1901.
