  • I wonder if Jimmy Caskie a Scottish International footballer should be part of the Everton Legends as there is a story behind his 6 years as an Everton signing’ He was signed from St Johnstone in 1939 just before World War 2 started
    My uncle Jimmy Caskie was effectively an Everton player from 1939 until 1946. He played for Scotland a few times against England during the war when because he had to help the war effort he was sent back to Scotland to work in the shipyards as a draughtsman , As such Everton allowed him to guest with Hibernian FC during the war and returned to Everton FC in 1945 and was transferred eventually with Tory Gillick to Glasgow Rangers in 1946 and which involved a diplomatic incident with Russia as Moscow Dynamo refused to play Rangers if Jimmy Caskie was allowed to play. The game was played without my uncle playing.
    He was great success at Hibernian FC and no doubt would have been a success with Everton except for the war. As a wee boy my father would take me to Easter Rd to watch my uncle playing and although from Glasgow am a staunch Edinburgh Hibs supporter and in my eighties and also a keen interest in Everton and how they are doing and what might have happened for my uncle at Everton had it not been for World War 2 starting
