John Duncan was in the legendary forward line of the late 60's/early 70's that included Gordon Wallace & Jocky Scott. All 3 strikers are actually in the top 10 of Dundee's all-time top scorers. Duncan's goal scoring tally came to 109, after playing a total of 179 full games for the club between 1966 & 1974.
This was the era I used to follow the Dee every week, and I remember one Saturday, John Duncan parked his car at the top of Provie Road and my crowd spotted him, so we all ran over and started chatting to him. As we all made our way down to Dens, every few steps other Dee fans noticed us and joined the posse. By the time we reached the ground there was a crowd of about 100 of us who ended up escorting him to the main entrance!
The above photo was taken in the 1971/72 season at Dens but I must admit I don't recognise what team it is. Hearts maybe? If you recognise any of the players, drop the info into the comments.

I too think it's Hearts. Is the guy under JD's left oxter not Alan Anderson? No idea who the other guy is though.
