Glasgow born centre forward Johnny Simpson played for Maryhill Juniors in 1926 and joined Scottish League Partick Thistle in 1927, becoming a prolific scorer for Partick Thistle, including 9 goals in Thistle’s 1931 16-0 Scottish Cup win over Royal Albert. Simpson moved to Plymouth Argyle with Jimmy Rae in the summer of 1932 after impressing while playing against Argyle for Partick during a benefit match for fellow Scot and Pilgrim, Alec Hardie, making his Football League debut at Oldham Athletic in August, scoring in a 3-1 defeat. Whilst Rae went on to unbridled success as a player at Home Park, and later as manager, Simpson found chances far harder to come by and dogged by a knee injury made just five appearances and 2 goals in the 1932-33 season. After leaving Home Park he returned to Scotland to play for Ayr United and joined Stranraer in 1935, where he was player-coach, before crossing the Irish Sea to play for Sligo Rovers, returning to Stranraer in 1936 where he finished his career.
