Balloch was the hardest 5'10" junior international centre-half anybody has ever seen - and was much sought after by Celtic and Man Utd.

I have to say that I never saw Jackie play but Bobby talked very highly of him as a player and a friend

Some of the older generation in Ruglen say that Jackie was a truly great player.( 1950s and 1960S). Anyone out there got any good positive stories about Jackie ?
