Archie-Gemmill11947 –

A member of the successful Derby County and Nottingham Forest sides under Brian Clough, Gemmill is also the scorer of Scotland’s greatest ever World Cup goal. He first came to prominence with St Mirren where, in 1966, he earned the distinction of being the first tactical substitution in Scottish football history, when he came on for Jim Clunie in a Scottish League Cup tie. A hard working and persistent player Gemmill enjoyed much success in England winning the Football League championship in 1972, 1975 and 1978 and the League Cup in 1979. Archie’s consistent performances earned him 43 caps, 22 of which were as captain, and he scored eight goals in the dark blue of Scotland.
