John "Jock" Hutton (born 1898) was a Scottish footballer, who played for Aberdeen, Blackburn Rovers and represented the Scotland national team in ten official internationals between 1923 and 1928.

Career[edit]

Hutton signed for Aberdeen after the First World War in 1918, and made his debut for the Dons in 1919. He originally played at inside-forward but switched to full-back. In the 1920s, he was Aberdeen's most capped player with seven of his ten caps coming while he played for Aberdeen.

In October 1926, he joined English club Blackburn Rovers for a then-record £6,000 transfer fee.[1] Hutton won an FA Cup winners' medal in 1928, when Blackburn beat Huddersfield Town 3-1 at Wembley.

Hutton won ten caps for the Scotland national football team and scored one goal. He scored from a penalty kick in a 2–2 draw against Wales in the 1928 British Home Championship.[2] He also represented the Scottish League XI four times.[3]

Hutton managed Belfast club Linfield during the 1940s. During his time in charge, Hutton signed Tommy Dickson for Linfield.[4]
