Kenneth Dawson 1935/36


Sometimes players play above the norm, sometimes they play 'out of their skins'. Every club has their own incidences, Falkirk FC has many. Of course these are rarely published as Falkirk are not bigots from Glasgow. Same as it ever was.

In 1934/35 Falkirk were relegated for the first time in their history, a sad time, but just before the end of the previous season Falkirk had signed a young Outside-Left from up North. Kenny Dawson was signed from Forres Mechanics [he had previously been with Forres Thistle [as a Junior], Nairn County & Sheffield United and had shown more than just promise in scoring twelve goals in just eight matches at the end of the season.

In a partnership with Bobby Keyes, Kenny tore through the old Second Division. It would be wrong to say Falkirk won the league at a canter, Falkirk was much more dominant than that. In this season [1935/36] Kenny Dawson scored the second most goals in a season after Evelyn Morrison in the twenties. Of course, it was a lower division, and he was the penalty taker, but statistics are statistics.

Below is a game by game run-through of Kenny's Season
