Jack Bertolini (born 21 March 1934) is a Scottish former professional footballer who played as a wing half. He was later a manager.


Born in Alloa, Bertolini played for Alva Albion Rangers, Stirling Albion, Workington and Brighton & Hove Albion.[2]

Signed by Albion manager Billy Lane, Bertolini played at right half and had a spell of 193 consecutive appearances during his career at the Goldstone. A knee-ligament injury while turning out for the reserves ended his career in October 1965.[3]

After retiring, he managed Whitehawk[4] and ran a pub in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex.[5]
