Jimmy Delaney is unique in world football in that he won three Cup Winners' Medals in three different countries in three different decades - quite a feat! He won the Scottish Cup for Celtic before World War Two, the English Cup for Manchester United immediately after the end of the war and the Irish Cup for Derry City in the 1950s. In addition, he won 13 caps for Scotland. Jimmy Delaney: The Stuff of Legend details all his achievements, including the horrendous injury that he suffered on the eve of World War Two and the family tragedy that also came his way. There is an account of his famous goal in the Victory International of 1946, which lit up all of Scotland. He played for seven clubs in total in a career which lasted from 1933-1957. Jimmy was renowned for good sportsmanship and remained a humble man from a small village in Lanarkshire.
