Jimmy Stewart trainer for Portsmouth


June 11, 1937
Jimmy Stewart, Dundee’s trainer, has accepted a similar post with Portsmouth, and the Dens Park club are faced with a double job – finding a manager and a man to look after the players. Mr. Stewart leaves Dundee at the end of this week.

It ought to be mentioned that the Dens Park club have acted very generously with the trainer. He was under contract for another year, and it was a real sporting spirit that the Dens Park management decided to cancel the contract in order that he should better himself.

I understand that the Portsmouth situation is considered second in importance to that of the Arsenal – financially – that is, and Mr. Stewart is taking a big step up. He will have a five year year’s contract.

Mr. Stewart is no stranger to English football. He played there in the ranks of Liverpool, and before coming to Dundee at the beginning of last season he had a long spell with Blackpool. He has also been trainer at Hamilton and Tynecastle.
