Alexander ‘Sandy’ McNab (born 27 December 1911 in Glasgow, died September 1962) was a Scotland international footballer. He played a leading role in two of Sunderland’s greatest successes. He was on the pitch for the Championship clincher in 1936, and replaced injured captain Alex Hastings in the 1937 Cup Final.
In 1938, McNab joined West Bromwich Albion for a fee of £7,000 but war intervened and he went to various clubs on loan including 3 appearances for Newport County, Nottingham Forest, Northampton Town and Walsall. He eventually signed for Newport County in 1946. McNab later played for Dudley Town and managed Northwich Victoria from 1948-49 before eventually retiring in 1952.
I have to admit that although Sandy McNab is on the list of players who have been on the books of Walsall football club, I cannot find that he ever played for us. But that don’t mean anything as neither can I find information for stats elsewhere (other clubs) But that also could be because of the War intervention, into his career!
