James McKee was a Scottish footballer who played as a centre-forward for Scotland and for various clubs in Scotland and England in the 1890s and 1900s.

Football career[edit]

Born at Arbroath,[1] he started his football career with Heart of Midlothian before moving to England to spend one season at Darwen in 1896. He then returned to Scotland to join East Stirlingshire.

His only Scotland cap came in Scotland's 5–2 win over Wales on 19 March 1898 when he scored two goals, with the others from fellow-debutante, James Gillespie.[2]

He later went back to England to play for Bolton Wanderers, Luton Town and New Brompton.[1]
