Jimmy Magill

After joining Arsenal in 1959, Jimmy Magill was involved in a three-way battle with Len Wills and Dave Bacuzzi for the right-back slot for much of his first two seasons at the Club.

The Irishman regained his position in the team for the 1961-62 season, although he was forced to rotate with Bacuzzi before claiming the role for himself the following year.
