Leeds beat off a host of clubs to sign Jimmy Dunn from Scottish
junior football after World War 2, and he was to be a fixture in
Leeds sides for more than 10 years. He only scored one goal in his
time at Leeds - against Blackburn in 1950 - but he was widely
respected for his defensive abilities and thought unlucky not to
win a Scottish cap. He moved on to Darlington but lasted less than
a season there before a knee injury ended his playing career.
Anon says: I know the son of jimmy dunn. jimmy goes to the
masons at hadfield.
John Raynard says: Jimmy Dunn lives in the same street as myself
and being too young to see him play but having read much about him
I occasionally speaking to him I can say he is a very modest man
and true gentleman.
V McDermott says: Hi Jimmy Dunn is my dads uncle .He is a great
laugh and still goes to every game as well as owning a celtic
season ticket and still comes home to see us all his number 1
shobson says: Jimmy Dunn is my Grandad. I liked to say that
according to many people he was the finest right back ever to play
for LUFC. He is a top class individual and i'm sure he could still
show gary kelly and dan mills a few tricks or too. Happy Birthday

Marge Vallazza says: Jimmy Dunn was my grandfather, Cornelius
