probably born in Scotland

James Wilkie was born sometime between 21st November, 1885, and 20th November, 1886, and is most likely to be Scottish. *

The 5' 8 (11st 3lbs) forward signed for George Easton's Thistle on Saturday, 30th June, 1906, having most recently been with East Fife.

Aged 19 or 20, he made his debut appearance on Tuesday, 21st August, 1906, in a 2-2 draw away to Renton in a Benefit match.

That day, James became a member of our scoring debutant's club.

He scored the last of his 5 goals on Saturday, 4th May, 1907, in a 3-2 friendly defeat at home to Kilmarnock.

That proved to be his last game for Thistle, having appeared as a Jag on 24 occasions.

His club-list included East Fife, Partick Thistle and Reading.

We don't know where or when James died. *
