James "Jimmy" Lumsden (born 7 November 1947 in Glasgow, Scotland) is a retired Scottish footballer and football manager.

Contents

Playing career

He began his footballing career with Leeds United in 1964, playing just four games before his transfer to Southend United in 1970. Over the next six years he had spells with Greenock Morton, St. Mirren, Cork Hibernians and finally Clydebank.

Having spent 6 years at Leeds United as a player in the 1960's, Lumsden returned to Elland Road as Assistant Manager to Eddie Gray between in the late 80's whilst the club languised in the middle reaches of the old Second Division.

Managerial career

Lumsden began his coaching career as Eddie Gray's assistant at Leeds, but was fired along with Gray in September 1985. He subsequently enjoyed management roles at both Bristol City and Rochdale before going back to the dressing room as First Team Coach at Preston, then in the Second Division, under the stewardship of David Moyes.

Preston North End

When Gary Peters quit the club in February 1998, Moyes (a 34 year old defender) replaced him. With the help of Moyes, Kelham O'Hanlon and Lumsden, Preston quickly became promotion contenders, reaching the 1998-99 playoffs (losing to Gillingham in the semi-finals before finally being promoted as champions a year later) They almost made it two promotions a row in 2001, but lost 3-0 to Bolton in the Division One final.

Everton

Following this Moyes took his trusted Coach over to Goodison Park when he succeeded Walter Smith as Everton boss.

Jimmy joined Everton FC in the summer of 2002 as Head Coach, assisting David Moyes and Alan Irvine.

Still with the club, Lumsden is instantly recognisable to the Toffees' faithful for his mop of white hair.
