About Jimmy Smith:
“His transfer from Ayr United in September, 1929 created a big sensation, for he is known as a play who holds the record as an individual marksman in the Scottish League (Division 2). Was previously with Clydebank and Glasgow Rangers, and isn’t exactly a youngster. He’s a real live wire near goal, and is rather unorthodox in many of his moves, not being always content to hang about waiting for something to turn up.”
