Jimmy Roe

A forward who starred in the Stix-Breweries-Shamrocks dynasty that dominated St. Louis soccer in the 1930s.

Roe won three U.S. Open Cup titles, with Stix, Baer & Fuller in 1933 and 1934 and with Central Breweries in 1935. He also reached the final with Stix, Baer & Fuller in 1932 and with St. Louis Shamrocks in 1936 and 1937. Stix, Central Breweries and Shamrocks all were the same team, but with the name changed twice because of changes in sponsorship. Roe, who joined Stix in 1930, won St. Louis league championships in 1933, 1934 and 1935.

In 1937, Roe was selected for the U.S. national team for a three-game series against Mexico, but while on the tour he suffered the knee injury that ended his career at the age of 28.
