Glasgow born left half Harry Anderson started with junior club Vale of Clyde before joining Third Lanark, from where he joined Hibernian in 1910. After 12 goals in 42 appearances he moved to Raith Rovers in the summer of 1912 where he was part of the team that reached the Scottish Cup final in 1913, which Raith lost to Falkirk. Anderson earned a Scotland cap the following February in a goalless draw with Wales at Parkhead, which proved to be his only international appearance. During World War One he moved to St Mirren and won a Victory Cup winners medal with the Paisley club in 1919. He ended his career with Clydebank and retired in 1922.
