Robertson, Jimmy Jimmy Robertson scored the first goal I can remember seeing on the television.

That was the first goal in 1967 FA Cup final for Tottenham against Chelsea. I became a Tottenham fan from that day onwards.

Robertson, Jimmy When I worked at Nolan Baptist & Bond, his firm Gillen Financial Services rented a room in the building. I remember he was a lovely man and his wife knitted a jumper for me for my son whilst I was pregnant. My husband sat with him at our Christmas party and was in awe of him asking him who the greatest player was he played against and he said Pele my hubby thought he’d say George Best. We found out it was his birthday he was 60 so we did all the office up with old footie photos. Such a gent and hope he’s doing well.

Robertson, Jimmy I’m interested to know, if this was the same s lad I played with, and travelled with when we played with Cowdenbeath FC then I believe he joined Saint Mirren? I moved to Australia and lost touch? Thank you Jim Dorman
