Regular contributor Kenneth Brannan said he “really enjoyed the article about Jim Henry – an absolutely smashing bloke”.
Jim’s friend Dave Martin had asked for information on Jimmy playing in a competition called the Black Trophy.
Jimmy had told him he played in a winning team in that amateur youth competition, but not many had heard of it.
Kenneth continued: “Although I am not a Dundee United supporter, I have been to many derbies between Dundee United and Dundee during my lifetime.
“Jim featured in quite a few, albeit many years ago. He was a great player and, best of all, he is a local man.
“I know Jim is older than me by a good few years.
“While I was a pupil at St Clement’s PS in Charleston, I was also an alter boy and I can remember Jim coming to Mass on weekdays on a few occasions.
“Afterwards, he spoke to the priest, the late Father Page.
“Father Page later told me Jim was a brilliant footballer but, more important than that, he was a good man.
“Nearly half a century later, I still remember that.”
Kenneth, from Lochee, continued: “I remember Jim being transferred to Fulham for, I believe, around £50,000, which was a huge sum at that time.
“But the transfer fell through a couple of days later because of a medical report, or something like that.
“I well remember my father saying to me at that time that it could be enough to ruin Jim’s football career.
“Happily, it didn’t.
“A great performance I saw from Jim came against Dundee.
“Jim was playing for Aberdeen against Dundee in the Scottish Cup at Pittodrie.
“It was Aberdeen’s first-ever match on a Sunday in their history, January 1974 if my memory is correct.
“The Wombles were riding high in the charts at the time and Dundee had won the League Cup a few weeks earlier.
“I was sitting in the stand with my father and my Uncle Ken as the Dee won 2-0 and, unluckily for Jim Henry, one of the goals Dundee scored deflected off Jim before it went in.
“Despite that, Henry was, in my opinion, the best player on the pitch that day and Aberdeen were booed off the pitch by their own fans in the near 25,000 crowd.”
Kenneth went on: “That match was the start of a magnificent cup run by Dundee and they beat Rangers 3-0 at Ibrox in the next round.
“That was also Rangers’ first-ever Sunday match in front of 65,000.
“Then, Dundee met Hibs at Easter Road in the last eight with over 27,000 watching a 3-3 draw.
“Dundee won the replay 3-0 at Dens on a Monday night in front of over 30,000 – the biggest attendance I ever saw at Dens.
“Dundee’s hopes of winning both domestic cups in the same season ended when they lost to Celtic at Hampden on a Wednesday night, with the late Jimmy Johnstone scoring the only goal just before half-time in front of a crowd of over 58,000.
