Biography: Capped eight times by Scotland, this ex-Birmingham City goalkeeper's name has been made even more famous by a previously unknown Scottish author who decided that James Herriot was a more appropriate pen-name than Alf Wight. Under this adopted pen-name, he went on to write the now world famous books about the adventures of a country vet, which led to the film and television series 'All Creatures Great and Small' The original Jim returned to Scotland after his playing days to become a bricklayer in Strathclyde.
