Jimmy McKinnell from Dalbeattie was a professional footballer who played for Dumfries club Queen of the South F.C. and Blackburn Rovers.

Jimmy McKinnell moved from Queen of the South to Blackburn Rovers in 1920. He made seven appearances and scored three goals. McKinnell was one of the three players to make such a move in a short time frame along with Willie McCall and Tom Wylie. This along with the transfer of Ian Dickson to Aston Villa helped fund Queens' purchase of Palmerston Park.[1]

McKinnell made 111 top league and 13 F.A. Cup appearances for Blackburn before leaving in 1926. He then had spells with Darlington, where he played over 100 competitive matches,[2] and Nelson before his retirement in the summer of 1930.[3] McKinnell was a left half.[4]
