Carronshore, Stirlingshire born right back Robert Nisbet started his football career with Camelon Juniors in 1928 before joining Motherwell in 1929 staying two years at Fir Park before returning to junior football with Dolphin. In the 1932 close season he joined Second Division Preston North End and made his Football League debut against Burnley that August at Deepdale in a thumping 6-1 victory, retaining his place for a trip to Devon to face Plymouth Argyle four days later in a match lost 5-0. These were his only appearances in the English game and he left Preston later the same year, joining Falkirk after a trial with East Stirlingshire. He became Falkirk’s regular right back through the next 7 years before he moved to Dumbarton in 1939. But his career was ended by the Second World War before he had played a first team match.
