Many thanks to Football historian Colin Jose for the information below, Mr Jose has been a great help to the Celtic Wiki in the past and his continued input is greatly appreciated.
When Joe left Scotland in 1939 he did not go back to the United States, he went back to Canada, home to Montreal.There he coached (and maybe played) a team in the Montreal and District League named WINGS.I don't have the record of this team, but have always intended to check it out and the length of time it operated.If you have micro film of the Montreal Gazette or the Montreal Star, in Glasgow, you can verify what I am saying.Also Joe was inducted into the New England Soccer Hall of Fame in 1997, after his death of course.I was a guest at the ceremony held in the Portuguese Club in Cranston, Rhode Island.Also a guest was Joe's son Grant, and other members of his family.I was asked to speak and spoke about Joe's career.Interesting enough, also inducted at the same time was Bert Patenaude (also deceased) who played for the United States at the World Cup of 1950.You can find the New England Soccer Hall of Fame on line.With Best Wishes,Colin Jose
