James Edwin Glen Upton has died at the age of 77. Born in Coatbridge the defender joined Cardiff City on a free transfer from Glasgow Celtic in the summer of 1963. Following a spate of injuries in the Bluebirds squad at the start of the 1963-64 season he made seven first team appearances.

After a 5-2 defeat against Charlton Athletic Jim lost his place in the first team but turned out regularly for the reserves in the Football Combination.

He later played for Bath City.

A little more on Jim Upton's career. He signed for Celtic from Glasgow Junior club St Roch’s in November 1959. As a provisional signing he continued playing Junior football. However, he was soon called up and played his first game at the club for Celtic A against Heart of Midlothian A on 2 January 1960. Unfortunately he was unable to break into the first team and was released by Celtic in April 1961. He signed for Tonbridge in August 1961 and so he may have joined Cardiff City from this club.
