FEATURED PLAYER

WILLIAM JOHNSTON McGOWAN McEWAN
Born: Cleland, 20 June, 1951
Career:
Blackpool 5/73;
Brighton and Hove Albion 2/74;
Chesterfield 11/74;
Mansfield Town 1/77;
Peterborough United 11/77;
Rotherham United 7/79
An all-action midfield player, Billy suffered a serious back injury which kept him out of action for the whole of the 1980/81 season but he showed grit and great determination to battle his way back again in December 1981 playing for the majority of the rest of that season.
Then he turned his hand to the coaching side of affairs and had a spell as manager of Sheffield United. When Rotherham United were struggling in Division Three towards the end of 1987/88, he returned to the club as manager but he didn't have enough time left to avoid relegation.
However, he quickly turned the club's fortunes round by guiding them straight back up at the first time of asking collecting the Division Four title along the way.
Then after a season of consolidation at the higher status, he lost his job in January 1991. He returned in a management capacity at Derby County where he had a couple of spells in charge.
