Biography


The golden boy of the late fifties, Jimmy was signed by the club as a 17 year old from Dundee North End as a centre-half.

In his first season at Dens (1958- 59), he played for the Scottish League side against the full Scottish International side. By the time he was 19 he had been moved to right half and again featured for the Scottish League side. Much to the disappointment of then manager, Bob Shankly, Gabriel moved to England and joined Everton for a fee of £30,000 in March 1960.

In his time at the club he had made sixty-seven appearances. He went on to play for Southampton, Bournemouth, Swindon and Brentford before pursuing a coaching career.
