Biography


Jackie started his career with home town club St Mirren, spending time out on loan at Junior side Beith before making his debut in March 1968 as the Paisley side marched towards the second division title. Released at the end of that season, he returned to Beith for a short spell, he signed for Stranraer in 1969.

After an impressive goal to game ratio in his one year at Stair Park, United manager Jim McLean brought the 23 year-old to Tannadice for a fee of around £10,000. Initially signed as a centre forward, he was in competition with Kenny Cameron and Alan Gordon, he found it hard to break into the team in the remainder of the 1970-71. He topped the goal scoring table at United in 1971-72, which included a hat-trick against Airdrieonians, but after the arrival of Pat Gardner he was converted to central defence and went on to form a formidable partnership with Doug Smith. Jackie was one of the players who turned out for United in their first Scottish Cup final appearance against Celtic in May 1974. Having been selected to play for the Scottish League against the English League in March, Jackie was named in the initial squad of forty players for the World Cup in 1974, but was not in the final selection to travel to West Germany. He played in all four of United’s European Cup Winners Cup ties that year, scoring against Juil Petrosani, and featured in the UEFA cup tie against Keflavik in 1975. He gradually slipped out of first team contention towards the end of the 1975-76 season, and in September 1976, he returned to St Mirren for £17,000.

Jackie spent seven years with the Buddies, continuing to play as a centre half, playing in a side that many considered a bogey team for United during that time. They won the Anglo Scottish Cup in 1980, and that same year he helped St Mirren qualify for Europe for the first time, captaining the side in their matches against Elfsborg and St Etienne. After being granted a testimonial year in 1983, he retired at the end of that season but continued working at Love Street for many years.
