Only find one picture (quick search) of Jack on promotion day.

Difficult to tell for sure if it is the same day - but it was a hot day and he is not wearing a big coat after the game in the photo

Was chatting to Peter Eustace a couple of weeks ago - and it was nice for me that he remembered my Grandad... who worked on the Players Entrance. I showed him this pic I have of him - and I was amazed that he spotted Peter Beardsley... Ive had this pic for years and Id never once noticed him

Anyway - turns out that Big Jack tried to sell Beardsley to us when he was manager at Newcastle - and Eustace recommended him to Wilko. But Wilko didnt want him - said he was too small - and he went to Liverpool instead... 

Shame eh?

Eustace, like Turner was a better judge of a player than a manager.
