JIM STEELE - 1966 TO 1972

You couldn't miss Jim Steele when he was on the pitch, what with him being so tall and having bright red hair. He always did put in a good sturdy shift too, I recall.
He came to Dens as a young lad in 1966 but he didn't get a regular game until 1969, and it didn't take too long for his midfield skills to catch the eye of other clubs, Southampton eventually snapping him up in 1972. The Saints were a good team back then!
Jim played in a total of 104 full games for the Dee.
The photo is dated 1971.

I knew Jim Steele when he was in the United States. Hope he is doing well.
