Australian goalkeeper, Jimmy Fraser, had a relatively short first grade and international career. However, his role in helping the Socceroos qualify for the 1974 FIFA World Cup cannot be overstated. To those within the game, he is known as one of the greatest goalkeepers to have ever put on the green and gold.
Fraser played his club football for Polonia and St George Budapest, winning a premiership in 1972 and a grand final in 1974. He battled another iconic Australian goalkeeper, Ron Corry, for a place in the national team throughout the early seventies but would have to wait until 1973 to make his senior international debut.
Socceroos coach, Rale Rasic, selected Fraser during the latter stages of World Cup qualification against Iraq, Indonesia, Iran and in the final playoffs against South Korea. Rasic would have picked him ahead of Jack Reilly for the Finals in West Germany. However, he declined to travel due to his full-time employment obligations managing guard dogs.
He later went on to have coaching and development roles in the game, including a stint as goalkeeper coach at Sydney Football Club. This design pays tribute to a gentleman and legend of Australian football. On the back, the goalkeeper's number one - in true seventies style.
