Jim McKechnie

Norwich Career: Loan (March 1986)
Current Club: Retired
Date of Birth:  
Nationality: Scottish


Glasgow Celtic midfielder Jim McKechnie spent a month on loan at Carrow Road in March 1986 but did not play for the Norwich City first team.

Jim began his career as a schoolboy with Celtic but turned down a trainee's position when his family planned a move to England due to his father's work commitments. Jim later played for the Scotland Youth side and impressed Nottingham Forest manager Brian Clough who signed him. He later returned to Celtic and made a single first team appearance. Soon after his loan spell with Norwich, Jim joined Irish side Derry City with whom he finished his career.
