Debut: Celtic 5-1 Shettleston, Scottish Cup, 1 Sep 1888
BiogJames Coleman was a rivetter in the yards, and would later become a barman in the Calton.
He played full-back for the Bhoys in one of Celtic’s earliest line-ups.
Signed from Dumbarton Athletic in August 1888 he made his only competitive Celtic first team appearance in a 5-1 Scottish Cup victory over Shettleston at the original Celtic Park on September 1st. That match was Celtic’s first ever Scottish Cup tie. He returned to Dumbarton almost immediately and played against Celtic in a friendly little more than a week later.
He later became one of the players for the reactionary Glasgow side "Glasgow Hibs", but they were short-lived.
