Charlie Higgins



Bellshill born full back, Charlie Higgins had two spells as a player at Motherwell. His first spell came in the unofficial war years when the real competitions were on hold, he would serve Morton, Arbroath, Chester City and Airdrieonians before arriving at Fir Park for a second time in 1949. Higgins also worked as a part time PE instructor alongside his football duties. Despite spending ย five years at Fir Park he struggled to break into the first team as one Archie Shaw barred his route to the first team, Charlie of course was a more than reliable deputy when called upon. Without a doubt the highlight of his stay at Fir Park was playing a pivotal role in the side that demolished Rangers 4-0 at Fir Park on the 10th December 1949. In 1954, Higgins departed the club to join Lanarkshire rivals Albion Rovers, he would retire from the game after a season with East Stirlingshire.
