     Home | Football | Jim Fotheringham

James Gibb Fotheringham (19 December 1933-1977) was a Scottish football defender.

Fotheringham was a product of the Arsenal youth system and at 6'4" looked to be an imposing centre back. However, Fotheringham managed only a few runs in the first team and never really convinced before joining Heart of Midlothian for £10,000 in 1959. He returned to England with Northampton Town the same year only to see his career ended early by a bad injury.

Whilst at Arsenal he also featured for the London XI that took part in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.
