Thomas Bruce Niblo, born in Dunfermline on September 24, 1877, went to Hamilton Academicals from school football and Cadzow Oak. The restless wing forward, who played once for Scotland (against England) on 9th April 1904, played for Linthouse and Newcastle United (1898-1900), then Aston Villa, Nottingham Forest (1904-1906), then Watford and again Newcastle United (1907/08).He joined Aberdeen in December 1908 and moved to Raith Rovers after the end of that seson. "Tommy" Niblo, a good dribbler and quite powerful, was also very good at golf. He sustained permanent injuries during World War I and died in 1933.

"A capital forward, full of 'go' from start to finish. In the heat of a game is inclined to be selfish, and often lacks judgement at critical moments. A trier of the first water, and with more care in avoiding the backs or in passing would have doubled his value. Strong, compactly built, and heedless of danger, he can get through any amount of work, and usually does best with plenty to do. Good in any forward position, but probably best in the centre."
