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.


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]
