Profile:
Glasgow born James Smith joined the Dons from Benburb in 1965, and the elegant Smith was fondly nicknamed "Jinky" by the Dons support, as his subtle skills and slight build, were his trademark. Capped at U-23 level for Scotland while at Pittodrie, Aberdeen resisted a bid from Celtic in 1968 for his services before a bid of £80,000 from Newcastle United was accepted in a year later. Four caps for Scotland were scant reward for such a talent.
