Description

Oakbank, Perth born goalkeeper John “Jock” Ewart started his football career in local junior football with Douglas Park in 1906, playing for both Bellshill Rovers and Bellshill Athletic in 1907 and Larkhall Thistle in 1908 before being signed later that year by Scottish League Aidrieonians. His form soon attracted the Scottish selectors and he made 2 appearances for The Scottish League, in October 1910 against The Irish League and a year later against The Southern League. After 4 seasons with Airdrie he joined First Division Bradford City in the summer of 1912, making his debut that September at Aston Villa, immediately establishing himself as the number one goalkeeper at Valley Parade making 111 appearances before the advent of the First World War, during which he served in the Army and suffered from shell shock. However he returned to Bradford City after the War, remaining their number one goalkeeper until he re-joined Airdrieonians in 1923, by when he had made 272 appearances for The Bantams. He made one appearance for the Scotland in a 3-0 win against England at Hampden Park in April 1921. He was in goal for Airdrie as they won the 1924 Scottish Cup Final beating Hibernian 2-0 at Ibrox, and was a big part of the team that finished in second place in the Scottish League Championship four years in a row between 1923 and 1926 but after a further 4 seasons at Broomfield Park he re-joined Bradford City, making 30 appearances for them although by now they were in the Third Division (North). He finally joined Preston North End in the close season of 1928, playing his last game of 35 for Preston in October 1929 before retirement.
