Avonbridge, Stirlingshire born inside forward Dr Jimmy Marshall joined Glasgow Rangers from junior club Shettleston in 1925 where he soon developed into a prolific striker. He made his Scottish League debut at Morton in April 1926, scoring twice in a 3-1 victory, and during his nine year spell at Ibrox he amassed five Scottish League Championships and three Scottish Cups.

He also won three Scotland caps, all of them against England between 1932 and 1934, losing both away fixtures 3-0 but with a victory at Hampden Park, by a single goal, sandwiched in between. He also played once for The Scottish League against The Football League in a 3-0 victory at Maine Road in November 1932.

Marshall was a qualified doctor, gaining his medical degree in October 1933, and it was a medical appointment in London that caused him to leave Rangers and join League Champions Arsenal in July 1934. In total he scored 125 goals in 225 League and Cup appearances for Rangers.

Marshall only spent one season at Arsenal, making his Football League debut at Blackburn Rovers in a 2-0 defeat on 17th September 1934. With Alex James, Ray Bowden and Bobby Davidson keeping him out of the side, he only made four League appearances for The Gunners in what was another Championship season, however he did score in Arsenal’s 4-0 defeat of Manchester City in that season’s FA Charity Shield, his only other Arsenal appearance.

He left Arsenal in March 1935 to move to Second Division West Ham United where he spent two seasons scoring 14 goals in 59 appearances before retiring from the professional game at the relatively early age of 29. He later played for non league Ashford Town in 1937.
