THE daughter of a former Cowdenbeath player who played in the Blue Brazil side who won the Second Division title before the Second World War has written to the club saying that it means so much to her that her father has been included in the club's Hall of Fame.

Willie Reid starred at inside left in the Cowden side which won the 1939 2nd Division Championship.

Arsenal made a bid to sign him but he preferred to stay with Cowden. After the War, Willie played for St Mirren for a number of years.

As a manager he was in charge when St Mirren won the 1959 Scottish Cup and then managed Norwich City to League Cup success in 1962. He passed away at the age of just 58 in Troon in 1975.

Willie is a member of the Cowdenbeath FC Hall of Fame and last week the club received the following message from his daughter Linda: "I had to write to thank you, for having my dad in the Cowdenbeath Hall of Fame.

"This means so much to me, as my dad was so proud of his days with Cowdenbeath. I have a great photo of my him, when he was playing for Cowdenbeath, on our mantlepiece, and his medal.

"My mum had wonderful memories of those days, and she told us some wonderful stories from way back".

Linda added: "Mum said dad's nickname was “Happy feet”, because of his impressive foot work with the ball! Mum also told us that dad’s landlady in Cowdenbeath, went out that night, after the big win and dug up a wee piece of the turf, as a keep sake, which had pride of place in her home! Thank you again. - From Linda Reid, Willie Reid’s daughter".
