I remember waiting ages for the Leeds players’ autographs after the Inter Cities Fairs Cup (now the Europa Cup) tie at Dens. Peter Lorimer and Eddie Gray and some of the others were quite happy to sign but Big Jack begrudgingly scrawled something. Mind you he might have got a bit of a headache after being clobbered by Ali Donaldson when standing on the goal line which he was renowned for doing .

I remember it well. It got one of the biggest cheers of the night. 😁

As NC says he fad a habit of standing in front of the keeper at a Leeds corner. Impeding him and intimidating him. Big Ally was having none of it and punched him in the ear.

I had (lost or nicked) the match programme at Elland Road with all Leeds signatures on front copy stamped "complementary " my old man got it from a dundee based journalist, hoping it turns up one day
