Biography:
Scorer of the opening goal of Cliftonville’s 1897 Irish Cup final 3-1 victory over Sherwood Foresters, James Campbell would go on to win two further Irish Cup winner’s medals.

In his fourteen international appearances Campbell scored just once, a late consolation against England to make the score 2-12 – England forward Steve Bloomer promptly went up the field to make the scoreline a (more than) unlucky 13-2.

An accomplished cricketer as well as footballer, James Campbell was brother of Cliftonville teammate and fellow international, John Campbell.
