James 'Joe' Kennaway (January 25, 1905 in Point St. Charles, Montreal – March 7, 1969 in Johnston, Rhode Island) was a dual international (Canada and Scotland)[1] football goalkeeper. He began his career in Canada, spent four years in the American Soccer League before finishing his career with Celtic F.C. in the Scottish Football League. He later coached the Brown University soccer team from 1946 to 1959.

An excellent performance in a friendly game for Fall River against a touring Celtic team in 1931 gained the attention of the Scottish side.[2][3] When their regular goalkeeper John Thomson was killed later that year, Kennaway was signed by Celtic.[2][3] Kennaway played from 1931 to 1939 in the Scottish Football League for Celtic.[2] During his stint Celtic won the league championship twice and the Scottish Cup two times (1933 and 1937). He made 295 total appearances for 'the Bhoys' and recorded 83 clean sheets.
