Henry McGill Kinghorn (1886–1955) was a Scottish football goalkeeper and manager.

Playing career[edit]

Born in Midlothian, Kinghorn began his career with Arniston Rangers before going on to appear for Alloa Athletic and Scottish Football League side Leith Athletic.[1] He transferred to Football League club Sheffield Wednesday for the 1908-09 season but failed to establish himself as first choice, making 25 league appearances with the club in three seasons.[1]

Bournemouth[edit]

In 1923 he succeeded Vincent Kitcher as manager of Bournemouth & Boscombe Athletic F.C., a position he held until being replaced by Leslie Knighton in 1925. During the 1928-29 season Kinghorn played once for Bournemouth in the Football League.[1] Kinghorn returned to the manager's chair in 1939 when Charlie Bell left and remained in charge until 1947 when Harry Lowe took over.[2]
