James Reid "Jimmy" McInch (born 27 June 1953 in Glasgow) is a Scottish former professional footballer.


McInch began his career as a youth player with Cardiff City where he formed a partnership with future Wales international Derek Showers. He was also part of the side that reached the 1971 FA Youth Cup final before losing 2-0 on aggregate to Arsenal. McInch was handed his professional debut in the 1972–73 season but struggled to build on his early promise and made just fifteen first-team appearances, with his only goal coming in the League Cup, before being released in 1975.

He instead joined Bath City, scoring his first goal in a 2-0 win over Wimbledon on 22 October 1975, spending two years with the club, including playing in the final of the 1977 Anglo-Italian Cup against Lecco.[1]
