Jackie Coulter, who wore size 12 boots, was signed from Intermediate League side Dunmurry in season 1929-30 and his most memorable appearance was in a play-off game against Glentoran to decide the City Cup. Coulter, playing as a centre-forward, scored a hat-trick in that match to ensure that the trophy returned to Paradise.
He gained 11 international caps over a four-year period. The first of these was in February 1935 against England at Goodison Park. He was transferred later that year to Everton for a fee of £2,750. During his career on Merseyside, he was capped a further five times before moving on to Grimsby Town and Chelmsford. His last appearance in an Irish shirt was in Belfast on 8th October 1938. Scotland won 2-0.
