Goalkeeper Adam Ogilvie first played senior football for Forfar Athletic in 1885 and headed south to join Second Division Grimsby Town in the summer of 1892, making his Football League debut against Northwich Victoria that September in Grimsby’s inaugural League fixture, a 2-1 home win. He missed only one game playing 28 matches for The Mariners before being signed by First Division Blackburn Rovers in the 1893 close season. Having broken into the Blackburn team at the end of October in place of Charlie Watts, he was part of their team that lost the 1894 FA Cup semi final 1-0 to eventual winners Notts County. From his Blackburn debut he was ever present for the rest of the season and the following two seasons, before joining non league Shrewsbury Town in 1897 after 120 appearances for Rovers over 4 years with the club.
This image is from October 1895, probably the home game with Preston North End on October 12th which Blackburn won 3-0.
