James " Jimmy " Thomson

Post by mackem50 » Sat Aug 22, 2015 6:01 pm

Was manager of Swansea Town 1927/31,apparently he was Scottish. I cannot find any information on him, where he was born and when, clubs played for and managed etc. He led Swansea Town on a historic tour of Spain and Portugal in 1927 where they beat Real Madrid 3-0.
