Scottish defender Jim Kennedy was a much travelled player, who came South to ply his trade and the bulk of his career was spent in the English leagues.
Jim was at Brighton for a season after leaving Celtic, then spent two years at Leeds City and two more at Stockport County. It was from Edgeley Park that Spurs signed the defender in 1910 and he stayed to play a part in the 1910-11 season as a replacement for injured Danny Steel, but he was not to be a regular in the side, making 13 appearances in the league following a fractured shoulder blade picked up in a reserve match.
After leaving White Hart Lane, Kennedy went on to play for Swindon Town, Norwich City, Watford and after World War I had ended he had a season at Gillingham before retiring to train the side for a while. At Watford, he had captained the side to the Southern League title in 1914-15.
Jim Kennedy died on 20th July 1947 in Glasgow, Scotland.
