Footnotes

  • Robert "Bobby" Johnstone (1929 — 2001) was a Scottish association football player, mainly remembered as one of the Famous Five forward line of Hibernian. Johnstone was the first of the five to leave Hibs, when he was sold to Manchester City in 1955. He also enjoyed success with the English club, becoming the first player to score in successive F.A. Cup Finals at Wembley, in 1955 and 1956. Johnstone, who is also fondly remembered by supporters of Oldham Athletic, won 17 caps for Scotland.
