Jimmy Dunn was spotted by a club scout while he was playing for his local junior team, Rutherglen Glencairn, and joined Leeds United in June 1947, aged 24. He made his debut on November 1947, and in the following season made the right back position his own for the subsequent 10 seasons. Dunn was a key player in Leed's promotion to Division 1 in 1955–56. The Leeds team of the time was built around the great John Charles, who rated Dunn highly; Charles described Dunn as "one of the best full-backs I ever played with... at tackling and covering he was unbelievable. Very fit, strong and hard. Jimmy was widely considered one of the finest players in his position never to have played for his country.

Jimmy played for Leeds United. One of their greatest players. A full back. The Rutherglen Reformer did a good story on him in 2011. Does anyone know some good stories about Jimmy ?
