James Carabine (23 November 1911 – 1987) was a Scottish footballer, who played as a right back.

In the club game Carabine was most closely associated with Third Lanark A.C., serving the club as a player from 1934 to 1945 and then as manager from 1946 to 1949.[3] In all he made 216 appearances and scored 10 goals for the club.[4]

As an international Carabine represented Scotland in three official matches, appearing against the Netherlands (21 May 1938), Ireland (8 October 1938) and England (15 April 1939). He also featured in two unofficial games against Eastern United States and the American Soccer League (in which he scored a hat-trick) and nine equally unofficial wartime internationals, all against England, his last being an 8-0 defeat on 16 October 1943.[5]
