Billy Nick's side won the league and cup double in 1961 and that team is still to this day considered one of the best if not the best in league history. But for the sad death of inside forward John "the Ghost" White, struck down by lightening whilst sheltering under a tree on a golf course during heavy rain and unlucky injuries to Dave Mackay they would surely have won more.......still there was Jimmy!
